I've always wanted to fly in a biplane, and SkyThrills! didn't disappoint. The open cockpit experience was amazing; I strongly recommend it.

The best trip of my life and the BEECH 18+pilot is most superior (I should know, I have flown in/with +150 a/c worldwide) Arriving at Catalina Airport in style, can't be surpassed. Will cherish this experience all my life. And, will be back for the...More

I was lucky enough to charter N90TT, a beautiful 1957 twin Beech E18S. This aircraft is immaculate and has a beautiful modified leather and wood interior. Very interesting mechanically; a true expertly-restored and modified antique. We departed FUL and toured downtown LA, wherever we wanted...More

Wild! The open cockpit biplane was virtually the same as the WWII trainer and, holding on dearly to the stick, I nearly lost all sense of equilibrium in dives toward the sea. As an author, the experience was invaluable as well as thrilling.
