SkyThrills & Blackstone Airways offer a full range of world-class flying services. Fly with us in our fully restored vintage 1957 Beech Super 18 Airliner to the dream destination of your choice. We will fly you and 5 friends direct to destinations that most airlines cannot or will not fly to. You will feel like a movie star from the 1950s as you sip fine wine or champagne in our luxurious and roomy cabin from just 2,500 feet and 160 mph. We always take the scenic route because sometimes the flight is so enjoyable you will want to savor the experience as long as possible. Flying the Beech Super 18 is like flying a magic train into a time when flying was more about the luxury experience and enjoying the view through huge picture windows. For 16 years, SkyThrills has offered the best in aerobatic thrill rides available with our amazing fleet of aircraft. You will fly "hand's on" even if you have never been in a plane before. No flying experience is required. Choose to fly our Pitts S-2C or our Extra 300L aerobatic stunt plane for an "Extreme" experience. Or go "Classic" in our open cockpit biplane with two passengers in the front seat as you fly our 1930's our open cockpit Waco YMF-5C. This magical flying adventure can take you through loops and rolls or a gentle tour around downtown LA or Long Beach Harbor. Or choose to fly a real fighter plane hand's on, the Marchetti SF-260. We have the most exotic aircraft and flight programs anywhere - ranging from Mild-to-Wild, Classic-to- Extreme! So whatever flying adventure you crave,Blackstone Airways & SkyThrills will give you the best and most memorable experience possible. We are the "Thrill of a Lifetime!"

Had a terrific and memorable biplane flight at Skythrills. Mike Blackstone Sr. and his son Mike and Mike Thomson my pilot for my flight were all really great and made for a wonderful afternoon. Mike Thomson made the flight perfect from beginning to end. Couldn't have been happier. I enjoyed the conversation on the ground as well. If you like... More

I had a really good experience taking my girlfriend on the biplane ride. I would really recommend it to people who are looking for a short romantic getaway. Our pilot, Mike, was very funny and he even gave us a tour of his new private jet at the end of our visit! Thanks Mike!

Recently was in LA and made plans to go out to Fullerton to visit sky thrills. I arranged an aerobatic flight in the Pitts S-2C. I booked the 45min flight with 20min aerobatics. So happy I went with the longer flight time. Was an amazing experience and would definitely do it again when I'm in the LA area. The facilities... More

I had long dreamt of flying a small plane and I found this ride a very convenient way to satisfy the urge. I took the Adventure Thrill Ride - Basic which allowed me in this small biplane for about 30 minutes with just the pilot & myself. To make it clear, you don't control the plane when taking off or...
