We are a family of three who were out to try something fun but less conventional than the movies. We turned to the blue skies and were not disappointed. Thanks to Dan, our skillful pilot, this turned out to be a wonderful experience. He took the time to explain everything and provide reassurances, even before we had any thoughts of freaking out. He even positioned the plane in all the right angles for us to take videos and photos. Couldn't have helped for a better pilot! This has got to be the best way to see the SF Bay Area. Flying in a small plane at an altitude and speed much lower than commercial gives you astounding views of the east bay, the peninsula, and virtually all of San Francisco. We highly recommend that you try this experience. And when you do, you might consider dropping your back-seat driving (e.g. "look out; you re going to fast; can't you see that big plane coming at us?"). There's a couple of bomb bay doors in the belly of the plane.

All I can say it was amazing! I couldn’t have picked a better date and time. We were up for a while thanks to air traffic being crazy busy so we got to see more. Our pilot Justin Chow was very nice and took his time with safety. Following his safety check list.

What You'll Get

There are few things as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans invented airplanes and why penguins constantly try to sabotage them by climbing into their jet engines. Feel the freedom of the skies with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $169 for a 40-minute aerobatic flight adventure for one (a $350 value)
  • $329 for a 40-minute aerobatic flight adventure for two (a $700 value)

On each adventure, an FAA-certified pilot trained in aerobatics takes participants aloft one at a time for 40 minutes of white-knuckle thrills. After receiving an introductory lesson and slipping into their included safety parachutes, participants climb aboard the aircraft one at a time and prepare for a flight that includes a series of wingovers, loops, and barrel rolls high above the beautiful Bay Area topography.

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.
