...is getting him a biplane ride for his birthday. My boyfriend and I took a thrill ride on the open-cockpit Waco and I've never before seen so much love and gratitude in his eyes. Powerful stuff, ladies ;) But seriously, our time with Mike Blackstone and the SkyThrills gang was just about perfect. Super friendly staff, nice facilities, and a... More

This. Was. Awesome. If you're thinking about doing this, just do it. It's one of the best experiences I've ever done. Mike is a great instructor and really goes out of his way to take care of you. This was my first time flying a plane and doing aerobatics. Never felt in danger. Definitely going back for more...

Having worked with Navy flight simulators for over 20 years, this was the first time to actually drive a real plane. WOW!! Mike, call-sign "Rocket" took me up for my Darlin's 68th birthday present. He turned the stick over to me before feet wet off San Pedro. Rolls, Loops, Spins, Hammerheads - all with me doing the flying. Mike is... More

This will be the easiest review I have done. This is by far the coolest and most exhilarating thing I have done in my life. Well skydiving is up there, but I digress. Skythrills and Michael Blackstone, the owner and pilot, made my multiple flights the best and most enjoyable thing I have ever done....... Period!!!!! It is hard to... More

Are you kidding me?!?!?! Having the opportunity to fly on the Extra 300 while the wife and kid watched from the Waco was just amazing! It's like combining the best rollercoaster in the world with a Playstation game! Unreal!!! A million thanks to both Mikes for the awesome day! My kid won't stop bugging me to go back! And we... More

I got a thrill ride as a graduation present and it was amazing! I had so much fun even with just the 25 minute flight. I felt like a BAMF in all the gear and stuff. I was a bit nervous when I found out that they let you fly the plane, but it wasn't that bad actually! Mike was... More

My dad flew out to visit me and had always wanted to fly in a biplane. I am fortunate enough to have found Mike with Sky Thrills!!! He was so accommodating to our hectic schedule, and fit us in without a problem. On the day of flying, it was actually his dad Mav, who was our pilot. These two men... More

I purchased the Barnstorming Special on Yelp for $119 for two. It was as surprise for my boyfriend's birthday. Although it was the cheapest deal offered, you still get the royal treatment. When you arrive, they offer you water, give you a bit of insight about airplanes and whatever else they offer, and make sure your safety is first. Mike... More
