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.

This was seriously awesome! We’ve never flown in a small plane before and were initially nervous but once we got up it was so much fun. My gf got to take the controls for a little and had a blast. Highly recommend flying with Sam and Moe.

Had a blast! Def an amazing experience! Very relaxed, which made it super enjoyable. Take your camera and take lots of pictures. We were able to get really close shots of the Hollywood sign.

Such a fun and exciting experience! The whole experience was really laid back, while still being very professional. Felt safe and comfortable the entire time and looking forward to coming back in the future! The timing couldn't be any more perfect too as we got to experience most beautiful sunset from the sky.
