$189 for a Tailwheel Aircraft Ride-Along Flight ($380 Value)

During this one-hour introductory flight, you and an FAA-certified pilot take to the skies in a single-engine, propeller-powered light aircraft. After the ascent, you’ll get a chance to fly the plane using its charmingly antiquated control stick, all while learning to climb, descend, and turn.

San Carlos Flight Center

The team of FAA-certified pilots at San Carlos Flight Center opens up the world of aviation to aspiring pilots and sightseers. During comprehensive flight instruction, the team teaches pupils the skills needed to operate flight controls, land, take off, and keep seagulls from mistaking the plane as their king. Training sessions include everything from private pilot certification to specialty and advanced training. High-tech simulators such as the Xwind help burgeoning aerialists get their bearings before soaring the skies in a Cessna suited for training. To share bird's-eye vistas of the Golden Gate Bridge, coastal cliffs, and the city of San Francisco huddled up against the blue Bay, the crew also offers aerial tours.
