Take a thrilling ride over San Diego in a classic 1920s open cockpit biplane. Choose from a variety of itineraries covering the sparkling coastline, downtown San Diego or Coronado. While you — and up to one companion — enjoy unobstructed views from the front cockpit, your expert pilot flies the plane from the rear cockpit. Depending on your preference, your flight may be mellow and scenic or full of stunt turns and rolls. This is an ideal way to celebrate a milestone or just inject a little novelty into your time in San Diego.

Head to Montgomery Field Airport six miles (10 km) north of downtown San Diego to board your open cockpit biplane. Up to two passengers can sit in the front cockpit, while the pilot operates the plane from the rear cockpit. Depending on the route you choose (see Itinerary below for options), see downtown San Diego, La Jolla, Del Mar, Torrey Pines, Mission Bay, Coronado or Rancho Santa Fe. You can choose to fly low and slow to capture amazing photos or get your heart pumping with some aerial thrills.

One of the biplanes was originally built in May of 1927, the same month that Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic, and was used to carry airmail. Another was built in November of 1929, right before the 1930 "St. Valentine's Day Massacre." It was owned by a detective agency in Chicago that used it to transport a gangster-sniffing bloodhound. The third biplane was fully restored and looks like it just came off the showroom floor!

Your biplane ride will last 20 minutes to an hour, according to the itinerary chosen. Conclude your memorable flight at Montgomery Field Airport.


Please note: If you would like a separate plane for each person, please make individual bookings for each party. Any 2 passengers on the same booking will share a plane.

Discover the sights and flavors of San Diego and Temecula on this private helicopter tour and winery lunch for two to four people.

Enjoy an expertly prepared meal and top-notch California wines before continuing the helicopter tour through the valley back to San Diego.

Start your private 3.5-hour tour at Montgomery Field to meet your pilot and board a helicopter. Take off along the San Diego coast from La Jolla Shores to Solana Beach on a 1-hour flight. This stretch of California coast is one of the most beautiful in the state; its waters are teeming with marine life and the pristine beaches go on for miles.

Watch for dolphins, seals and leopard sharks below. Skyward, you may see pelicans, seagulls and other shorebirds swoop by your window. To the east, the beaches turn into mountains and beyond that, the desert. Take in this rare moment of being surrounded by copious sea life, water and land. Then, head inland over rugged mountains and through Temecula Valley before landing on Thornton Winery’s private helipad in the heart of Temecula Valley Wine Country.

Enjoy lunch at the winery’s 5-star restaurant, choosing from standout menu selections such as classic seafood cioppino, chipotle chicken flatbread, farm-fresh salads and more.

Common varietals in this Southern California wine region are chardonnay, merlot, sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon and zinfandel. Wines are available for purchase if you would like to bring a taste of Temecula home.

After two hours at the winery, re-board the helicopter for your 30-minute return flight, this time taking the lesser-known, but equally beautiful, inland route. Touch down at Montgomery Field.
