Our Expert Flight Pilots will take you soaring through the air in a 60 minute open-cockpit mini aircraft ride like no other! Experience breath taking views of scenic Southern California. Depending on the route and duration of your flight lesson, guests will get to take in surreal moments above the Santa Monica Pier, Pacific Palisades, Venice Boardwalk, Dodger Stadium, Griffith Observatory, the legendary Hollywood sign and even Catalina Island. We may also see Manhattan, Redeondo, and Hermosa beach, King Harbor, Queen Mary, as well as Rancho Palos Verdes.
Unlike helicopter rides, there are no doors to obstruct views and passengers actually get to control and steer the aircraft once in flight. And while our aircraft may look like something best suited for thrill seekers, it's actually remarkably safe. Every flight with Pacific Blue Air is a hands-on flight lesson with a certified FAA flight instructor. Once in flight, you will have the opportunity to actually fly the aircraft. Little nervous? Fear not! There is no pressure. Our main goal is that you walk away with an increased knowledge of how to fly a Light Sport Aircraft and an epic experience.
Come join us for the ride of your life, as we soar through the air, wind through our hair, amazing views at every turn, and memories that will last a lifetime!
Important Tour Notes:
Each person flying must be at least 8 years of age and a minimum of 4"10 in height. There is no upper age limit. The aircraft has a weight limit of 250 lbs per person.
Logged Flight Time:
After your lesson, you will receive a signed flight certificate that will allow you to credit your total flight time toward a pilot license should you decide to continue your training.
Through our state-of-the-art Flycom headsets, you will be in communication with your instructor throughout the entire flight.
Obtaining Your LSA Pilot's License:
Written and oral exams are required but future pilots can obtain a Light Sport Aircraft Pilot License with as little as 20 in-flight hours.
SAFETY-WE GET SERIOUS.
The Revo Evolution is the top of the line aircraft in Weight-Shift Control Light Sport Aviation. Our Revos are factory-built and FAA certified as S-LSA. Each are tested for 6 g's positive and 3 g's negative, stronger than most conventional aircraft.
Because our high performance wings are designed to glide, if a problem with the legendary Rotax engine ever did arise, our planes could easily sail down to safety with their impressive 10 to 1 glide ratio.
In addition, each aircraft is equipped with a ballistic-deployed parachute that could simply float the entire aircraft down to a safe landing. They are also equipped with a GPS based, emergency location transmitter and transponder.
