This experience was fantastic! I bought the groupon as a surprise birthday present for my boyfriend, and we both LOVED flying over the beautiful coastline and Catalina with our pilot! I extended our trip by taking the Catalina Island options which they offer you about a week before your reservation. It was a little expensive, BUT totally worth it by increasing your trip by 45 additional minutes.

This was one of the best experiences of my life. The people of SCA professional and went far beyond making this just another flight. I couldn't recommend them more and I hope to someday have the opportunity to fly with them again.

Awesome. Awesome! I went on a very windy day. Pilot Cary was as cool as a cucumber. With no experience (except x plane!) i hopped right into the pilots seat and flew the plane. 30 degree banks, turbulence, air traffic control, everything that makes flying exciting. What else can you say?! This is exactly as described. I'll go again soon. What a ride!

Great deal and personable pilot. Fantastic customer service, very responsive. Would recommend Cary and his services to others. I bought this as a gift for my godsons 17th birthday. He definitely enjoyed it, it was something special and fun for us to do together. Thanks to Groupon, I became aware of SCA.

The woman Cary was incredibly rude. The whole time we were communicating she made it seem as though she was not the pilot. I assumed this company had multiple pilots and planes (at least 2 of each). I explained the importance of the date and how it had to be on June 30th because it was for a birthday surprise. She sent me an email on the 29th at 6:30pm to tell me that she had to cancel. She offered no apology, explanation or compensation. I inquired about a refund several times via email but she ignored the question. Very rude, no customer service, very poorly prepared. Makes me think I should be a little more careful with trusting the companies that are on groupon.

From Our Editors

Nestled in the cockpit of a Socata TB 10 Tobago–a single engine aircraft with a luxurious leather interior–fledgling pilots soar over Los Angeles and the ocean with a South Coast Aeronautics instructor by their side. These teachers lead on-the-ground training as well as hands on Discovery Flights to teach new pilots the ins and outs of flying. In addition, they provide training for full on private pilot licenses, which enable holders to legally fly their own plane or ride their pet albatross to work. After earning a PPL, students can also garner an instrument rating and commercial pilot certification to seek a career in the skies.
