Overview

It's a magical flight in an authentic 1929 biplane. Real flying . . . Flying like it used to be with helmet and googles in the open-air. Two passengers sit side by side in the front cockpit while the pilot flies from the rear cockpit. The flight travels over the beaches, up and down the coast, over lagoons and flower fields of North San Diego County! 30/60 Minute and Sunset flights are available.

Flying over the coast in a 1920s biplane with an expert pilot at the controls is by far the most amazing thing you can do in the whole of California. The flight with Fun Flights combines excitement, nostalgia, sight seeing and romance all in one....More
