  • Climb aboard a meticulously restored 1920's biplane and take a step back in aviation history with this unique sightseeing adventure.

    In helmet and goggles, sit side-by-side with your companion in the front cockpit while the pilot flies from the rear. It is real flying, flying like it used to be.

    Feel the wind in your face as you speed down the runway and lift off into the clear blue sky. The Earth descends below as you feel the freedom of the open-air cockpit in this flight over the beautiful Southern California countryside.

    Fly low and slow over beaches, lakes, golf courses, vineyards and more. Or, make up your own route. You are in constant communication with your pilot. Just let him or her know where you want to go, and you are on your way. Each flight can be more thrilling than a roller coaster, or as gentle as you like! You tell your pilot what you want.

    Experience the Southern California coast from this unique and historic perspective. This is the aerial experience of a lifetime!

    1. Is it scary?
      The ride will be a gentle, level ride.   One reporter described it as "like a road in a convertible but with a better view."  Some folks have said they are afraid of heights, but no worries... believe it or not so are some of the pilots. Fact is, most people are afraid of edges not heights. In the aircraft you are surrounded by the cockpit and wings and there is none of that "on the edge looking down" sensation at all.
    2. Is it safe?
      Yes.  All the pilots are FAA Certified Commercial Pilots, and most are also Certified Flight Instructors.  Many of the pilots are either active duty military pilots or airline pilots.
    3. Are there any age, size or weight restrictions?
      Two large people will fit, although first class seating in a 1920s biplane is cozier than coach seats in modern airliners. The combined weight of participants should not be over 400 lbs. As for age, we've flown with youngsters from 2 to 102.
    4. Are we limited to flying your standard routes?
      With some exceptions, we can go wherever you want in the time you have on your flight. Be sure to tell the pilot what you want even if it's on our standard route. If you want to fly over something/someone they must be within 25 miles of our airport, and you can figure it will take about as long to get there as it would in a car. Keep in mind, our pilot is the ultimate authority on your flight and may need to alter the standard route due to weather, safety, or other concerns.
