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

Had the pleasure of going out in the Pitts plane with Mike (who is outstanding) and it was one of the coolest experiences I've had beside sky diving. I highly recommend doing this!! Thanks again Mike!

This was a great experience..image to get to visit all of LA with absolutely no traffic! I got to take a 45 min flight in the open cockpit WACO with Mike as my pilot. What a great experience it was indeed. The flight was smooth and Mike was a terrific pilot and guide. If you ever had the urge to... More

I was so nervous to do this. I was almost too nervous to go but when we took off, mike made sure I was very comfortable and made sure every step was as comfortable as I wanted it to be. It was intimidating but mike was so awesome with instructions and handling people who are new at this that by... 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...

I booked an "ULTIMATE THRILL RIDE" for my husband's 50th birthday -- it was nothing short of AWESOME. After an intense pre-flight instruction session, Mike took my husband up in a Pitts S-2C (teeny little stunt plane) and for the next 35 minutes, my husband (!!) had the controls of the plane and executed a series of acrobatic stunts! They... More
