$199 for a 60-Minute Scenic Flight Tour Over Los Angeles for Two ($499 Value)
Passengers choose between the Malibu and Hollywood scenic flights, with each showcasing the grandeur of Los Angeles from a fixed-wing single-engine airplane while onlookers clink glasses of wine or champagne and nibble on four chocolate-covered strawberries. Though both trips take off from Van Nuys airport, they diverge greatly after takeoff: the Hollywood flight heads southbound over locales including Marina del Rey, LAX, Dodger Stadium, and the Hollywood sign, and the Malibu flight heads westbound toward Malibu Beach, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica Pier, and the Getty Center.
Air Tours LA
Air Tours LA sends its patrons soaring into the airspace above Los Angeles for reasons that range from the beauteous views only available on high to the in-flight instruction necessary to teach the next generation of pilots. A fixed-wing single-engine airplane becomes the gravity-scoffing vantage point from which passengers take in the panoramic views during any of the eight different scenic flights. Depending on the route chosen, passengers can point out Santa Monica Pier, marvel at Downtown LA’s twinkling skyline, and pose like Orion for stargazers at Griffith Observatory. The squadron's Discovery Flights hand control of the steering column over to the passengers, allowing them to enjoy the freedom of flight while an experienced pilot oversees their safety.
