Q&A with the Owner

How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
Pacific Blue Air offers instructional flights along the scenic California coastline our state-of-the-art, open-cockpit REVO Evolution aircraft. ... Unlike helicopter rides, there are no doors to obstruct views and passengers actually get to control and steer the aircraft once in flight. And while our aircraft may look like something best suited for thrill seekers, it's actually remarkably safe. Should trouble ever arise with the legendary Rotax engine, our agile wing could simply glide the craft down to safety. In addition, our REVO is equipped with a ballistic deployed parachute.

Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
Henry the chief flight instructor is also a certified skydiving instructor, PADI scuba dive master, aerial cinematographer, and world-renowned base jumper.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
My business partner and I took one flight with our friends in Hawaii (who run a light sport aircraft company called Paradise Air) and thought it was one of the most fun and exciting things we'd ever experienced.
