JJ Helicopters. I have great memories of visiting JJ Helicopters in 2019 during my 'California Road Trip'. I visited a friend in San Francisco, then visited Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Los Angeles and San Diego, I finished my trip driving up the Pacific Coast Highway back to San Francisco. During my stay in Los Angeles I wanted to visit Torrance Airport (Zamperini Field) as this is the home of 'Robinson Helicopters' I had learned to fly helicopters in England and have my private license. The Helicopter I learned to fly in was a Robinson R22, which was built in the Torrance factory. Unfortunately I wasn't able to do the factory tour at the time, but wanted to see the factory anyway. After seeing the factory I found JJ Helicopters on the same airfield. I went in to JJ and asked whether if would be possible to fly a Helicopter (accompanied) up to Santa Monica Pier and back to Torrance. Hitomi of JJ was very nice and accommodating. Hitomi suggested we could fly out to the coast and over the beaches (Redondo, Venice, Santa Monica etc....) then over Beverly Hills and Hollywood and even past the Hollywood sign, then over Griffith Observatory, Downtown L.A., Staples Centre...... right over the top of LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) and back to Torrance. I agreed and flew the whole tour myself (with Hitomi's expert guidance and radio communication with the many Air traffic controllers in the Los Angeles area). This was the absolute highlight of my trip to California. I would highly recommend JJ Helicopters to anyone visiting L.A. I plan to return to JJ Helicopters soon and do some more flying with them.

JJ was awesome. The flight was better than advertised. The pilot (Hitomi Jinda) was an excellent narrator and pointed out all the coastal and LA attractions. This ride is amazing and should be taken by anyone visiting LA. I would give a 100 star rating if I could.

I have always wanted to fly low, along the Southern California beaches on a blue sky day and my tour pilot Rick made it happen on really short notice! I had an absolutely awesome flight just above the surf from Torrance to Santa Monica and back. If you haven't experienced this you need to do it. Take the longer beach tour and ask for Rick, you will never have a more pleasant pilot or a better time. This flight is one I will never forget!

This is the greatest way to discover the city of angels. In 45minutes (tour b) we've got the chance to get a stunning overview of the hottest spots such as Santa Monica and Venice, Hollywood and Downtown. A must, especially if you stay only a few days. Very professional and nice pilot: thank you Rick!

My girl friend surprised me with a helicopter ride. I am sure it's a lot of fun! We flew over my old house in Santa Monica, right by Hollywood Sign and downtown Los Angeles. If you are looking for a cool gift, I strongly recommend JJ Helicopters tour! It's a pretty amazing experience!
