Take the wheel and fly a 2-seat Cessna or 4-seat Piper single-engine plane over San Francisco. On this 50-minute tour departing from San Carlos, bring one passenger and climb aboard the plane with a professional pilot supervising. Get views of the City by the Bay, including Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge from 1,500 feet (457m) in the clouds.
What to Expect
Head down to the San Carlos Airport, located just south of San Francisco proper, for your 50-minute flying adventure. 

Check in with the flight team and meet your pilot, then listen to a safety briefing and orientation on what to expect. Depending on the trip and availability, you'll fly in a Cessna or Piper aircraft. 

Climb aboard the plane, accompanied by your pilot and passenger, taxi and take off safely from the airstrip. Climb to approximately 1,500 feet (457 meters) and head west, arcing over the coastal town of Half Moon Bay on your way north toward the city. 

Fly over the towering skyscrapers in downtown San Francisco, the blue waters of the bay, the orange stretch of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. Over your radio headsets, you'll hear flying instructions and commentary on the sights from your pilot. 

At the conclusion of your 50-minute flight, loop back to land safely at San Carlos Airport.

Excellent ! Unforgettable Experience

Totally amazing! Our pilot is really kind and experienced. Safe under his control but he gave us enough room to maneuver the plane. The flight was planned pretty well so that we saw the sunset just before landing. Also spotted some firework because it's July...More

Humans have long wished to fly like birds. Well, this is as close as it gets, ladies and gentlemen. I was stunned to discover how much my awesome instructor Isaac let me actually fly the plane. Taxing down the runway, across the bay, over San...More
