What will I get to see?
We offer three different tours based on different locations our passengers would like to explore:
The Scenic San Francisco Tour is our most popular and flies near the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, Downtown San Francisco, Golden Gate Park, Land’s End, and Fisherman’s Wharf.
The Peninsula and Pacific Coast Tour provides a scenic view of the beautiful Northern California coast. You’ll explore the rolling hills and rocky cliffs that border the Pacific Ocean as you fly over beautiful Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, Pescadero, and the Ano Nuevo state reserve.
The Silicon Valley Tour gives an aerial view of the Bay Area’s center of innovation. Soar above Apple’s new Infinite Loop, Stanford University, Levi’s Stadium, and Moffett Field as you experience the tech industry from above.
Tour routes are subject to change due to weather and air traffic control conditions.
What aircraft can I take a tour in?
We conduct most of our tours in our four-seat Robinson R44 helicopter. With a reputation of reliability, comfort, and stability, the R44 is the ideal aircraft for sightseeing above the Bay Area. For those interested in fixed-wing airplanes, we can also fly airplane tours using our four-seat, high-wing Cessna 172 and Cessna 182 aircraft.
How many people can I take with me?
Our airplanes and helicopters carry up to three passengers. For aircraft performance, no passenger may weigh more than 225 lbs, and the combined weight of all passengers must not exceed 580 lbs. Groups with a combined weight of more than 460 lbs may be subject to an upgrade fee.
How much does it cost?
We offer helicopter tours for $595 and airplane tours for $400 for approximately one hour of flying time.
What if I’m already a pilot?
For student or pilot certificate holders, we offer an Aerial Tour for Pilots which allows you to log flight time experiencing the Bay Area’s sights. We pair you with an instructor who will help you with airspace and radio communications.
When do you operate tours?
Weather permitting, our tours operate 7 days a week and depart between 9 am and 3:30pm. Call (650) 946-1700 today to schedule your adventure!
