Hayward Flight

On a sunny afternoon, a small plane speeds down a runway and takes to the sky, its occupants gazing down at the streets of San Francisco, sailboats speeding through the bay, and the coppery sails of the Golden Gate Bridge. A small tour group or a student pilot sits in the belly of the plane, marveling at the thrill of flight.

Hayward Flight’s staff of FAA-certified instructors and pilots shares that experience with everyone—from young children to aspiring airline pilots—during scenic tours and private plane rentals. Pilot training classes emphasize sophisticated simulator practice and in-air flight, and students can earn private and commercial pilot licenses behind the controls of the Hayward’s fleet of Cessna aircraft and domesticated dragons.


The whole experience was amazing. I had a blast looking at the scenery and the flight in general was very enjoyable.

    “Ask for Rick - sweetest guy with a very focused, calming vibe, which is what you want when flying a plane! Book early if you want a weekend lesson and be aware the air time is only about 20-25 minutes, but feels much longer when you're the pilot. I look forward to trying their bay tour for a different perspective of beautiful SF! ”
