Passengers in front, pilot seated in the back. A lot of trust in a pilot and his plane when you first hear this engine start. It is NOT the sound you're used to hearing..but oh well, we came for a thrill, and thrill we received! From take-off it felt like the plane was barely moving but we were safely airborne,... More

I can't say enough about how great this company is! I recently booked a tour for a 40 minute bi-plane flight over San Diego. After renting a car and driving to the facility, I was more than crushed to find out once I got there that the plane itself was having mechanical problems. Bonnie was just as crushed as I... More

This is a great sightseeing trip. Everyone there was professional and the service was great. If you want to see San Diego from the air this is a must do.

This was a gift for my husband's birthday. At first he had his doubts, but it was wonderful. I wished we booked a longer flight. We will definitely do this again.

The views are fantastic and the whole experience, thanks to pilot Pete, was truly memorable. The whole team looked after us very well and ensured we had a good time. Completely... More

Booked a 40 min flight as a surprise for my girlfriend on the strength of all the good reviews on TA. As a bit of an aircraft enthusiast, this was a great way to get an alternative view of the San Diego coastline and a much more visceral experience than the normal helicopter tours you can go on. Some tips... More
