Take a memorable biplane ride above the beautiful sights of San Diego aboard this 1920s vintage plane. Whether you’re an aviation enthusiast or simply looking for novel way to experience the city, this aerial ride is sure to lift your spirits.
Begin your aerial adventure by arriving at the city’s Montgomery Field any time during the tour’s normal operating hours. Pick a time, flight itinerary and trip length that best suits your schedule and interests. Then climb aboard your open-cockpit biplane to begin your ride.
As many as two guests can sit in the front cockpit, while your pilot sits in the back, handling all the flying and navigating. The planes used for your trip also have interesting stories to tell. One was originally built in 1927, the same year that aviator Charles Lindbergh took to the skies to cross the Atlantic, and was designed to carry air mail. Another plane, built in 1929, was owned by Chicago private investigation firm that used it to transport a crime-sniffing bloodhound. The third biplane has been lovingly restored to near-mint condition, appearing almost like it just came off the factory floor.
Your ride lasts between 20 and 60 minutes, with a variety of itinerary options on offer. You might choose to fly down the San Diego coast, fly over Carlsbad and Torrey Pines, check out fabulous La Jolla, see downtown or admire landmarks like Sea World, San Diego Bay or Coronado Island.
