Awful response for booking, after they get your deposit. Very unorganized. After being cancelled for the second time (the last time being at the airport hanger day of) you just get over it. There has to be a better company. I am still questioning whether or not this is a scam.

This was an excellent experience. I booked this for my wife and I and my wife just loved the entire experience. The only down side is you book and communicate almost entirely through email so you have to make sure your checking emails. Our pilot, Lisa, was incredible and you can totally tell she has years of experience. We would go again with Lisa. Thank you.

Fun and exciting experience. Pilot was friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. Would of liked to upgrade the flight to go around LA but unfortunately didn’t know the upgrade had to be arranged before arrival. Also was not informed that they’re only operating out of their Torrance location after trying to book a date was I informed this and I purchased this planning to fly from Santa Monica.

Pros: Our pilot Jimmy was super nice and did his best to make it a fun experience. He let me take off and drive err fly most of the way. Cons: +$80 cost which should be mentioned in fine print. Email communication was not the best. Cockpit is small - I’m 6’2 and I was very snug and could not sit upright.

Great experience! 80 dollar fee will be added once you get your appointment scheduled which I didn't like because it wasn't mentioned in the Groupon but I was willing to pay and didn't think an extra 80 was that bad. Came for my husbands bday! He really enjoyed every minute!

$129 for a Discovery Flight for Two ($258 Value)

Instructors take half an hour to teach students preflight procedures and how to read cockpit instruments on the ground before detailing an overview of the flight plan. Once in the sky, one of the two passengers tries their hand at the controls, guiding the winged vessel through the air for a portion of the 30-minute flight.

About South Coast Aeronautics

Nestled in the cockpit of a Socata TB 10 Tobago–a single engine aircraft with a luxurious leather interior–fledgling pilots soar over Los Angeles and the ocean with a South Coast Aeronautics instructor by their side. These teachers lead on-the-ground training as well as hands on Discovery Flights to teach new pilots the ins and outs of flying. In addition, they provide training for full on private pilot licenses, which enable holders to legally fly their own plane or ride their pet albatross to work. After earning a PPL, students can also garner an instrument rating and commercial pilot certification to seek a career in the skies.
