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

...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
