What you'll do

Prior to boarding, pose like a seasoned pro for a photo shoot with the airplane.

Once you’re on board, the pilot will give you an overview of the instruments and controls. After getting clearance from the tower, you’ll taxi to the runway for takeoff. Once at cruising altitude, you’ll learn basic flying skills in the training area over the Simi Valley.

Then, grab hold of the controls and feel free to move about the skies, exploring LA by air. Finally, in preparation for landing, you’ll come back down to earth at Van Nuys Airport.

    I had an amazing experience. Moe and his brother were very attentive and made sure I was comfortable. So happy I was able to experience this!

    Moe was great from start to finish! He was just as excited as us to be on the plane & he has a great/fun personality. I was super scared at first but he assured me and made me feel safe! My husband and I had a great time! Would definitely recommend!!

    This is a wonderful experience that I never knew I needed to have. Flying a plane over LA, even if it was just for a couple minutes, was one of the funnest things I’ve done in my life. Our pilot, Sam was excellent and very attentive to my group. I would recommend this to anyone just looking for a fun activity to do with a friend or an idea for a date. Well worth the money!!

    Though not lucky to have the experience due to medical reasons, have to ask for change the night before the event, Moe has been great to offer the option of rescheduling. Great “zero moment of truth” experience, look forward to the first moment of truth in a few days

    This was a very fun flight. I sat in the backseat with my GoPro and was able to get so many great sites down below like the Hollywood sign downtown LA and beach and so much more. My boyfriend who is a pilot as well got to help copilot the plane and an exciting time himself. We would recommend to everyone.
