This was a great father-son experience! We took the San Francisco / Golden gate bridge tour. Unfortunately it was a little cloudy, but we were able to see the city as well as Oakland and Berkeley. We were also fortunate enough to be able to climb over the clouds and find an opening that would allow us to see the Golden Gate Bridge from above.

We took a tour of the Bay, Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco area. It was outstanding. Our pilot was professional and friendly. He spent the flight explaining many of the the ins and outs of small aircraft flying and the plane in which we ere flying (a four-seater Piper Archer). He had a well conceived flight plan that was responsive to the weather and maximized what we could see despite some low clouds. It was an exciting and excellent experience. Would I to it again? -- in a heartbeat.

We had an excellent sunset flight over San Francisco bay on Mothers day, it was truly spectacular. Our pilot Blake was extremely good and so welcoming and knowledgable, he pointed out many of the sights and was so very willing and able to provide the best views while keeping us safe. Excellent value for money for a wonderful experience. Would definitely do it again with this crew.

We did the 20 minute flying experience. Our pilot, Mohammed, was exceptional. I have over 5000 USAF flying hours and his safety consciousness and situation awareness and management were outstanding. His instructions and explanations were clear and concise. He exhibited a quiet confidence without being arrogant so I truly appreciated that he really knew what he was doing and was always fully in command of the situation. Also, the aircraft was clean, comfortable and fun to fly. GREAT OVERALL EXPERIENCE!!

Guys! This was hella tight! My boyfriend surprised me with this experience for my birthday and I was blown away! First of all, I didn't even know this existed so i was already shocked and then I did an hour flight where I got to control after take off/before landing. It was not long enough at all, but it was a greaaat preview to what you could do (be a pilot lol) and 10/10 recommend. They were super accommodating because Bay Area fog was REAL the day we were supposed to fly and they rescheduled us which was really nice. I filmed my experience if you want to check it out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT5V2APpai4&t=167s
