About 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. To share bird's-eye vistas of the bay area, the crew also offers three different aerial tours. The Scenic San Francisco Tour flies near the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, Downtown San Francisco, Golden Gate Park, Land’s End, and Fisherman’s Wharf. The Peninsula and Pacific Coast Tour flies along the Northern California coast, providing views of Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, Pescadero, and Año Nuevo State Natural Reserve. The Silicon Valley Tour takes sightseers over Apple’s new Infinite Loop, Stanford University, Levi’s Stadium, and Moffett Field.
