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.
