SkyThrills & Blackstone Airways offer a full range of world-class flying services. Fly with us in our fully restored vintage 1957 Beech Super 18 Airliner to the dream destination of your choice. We will fly you and 5 friends direct to destinations that most airlines cannot or will not fly to. You will feel like a movie star from the 1950s as you sip fine wine or champagne in our luxurious and roomy cabin from just 2,500 feet and 160 mph. We always take the scenic route because sometimes the flight is so enjoyable you will want to savor the experience as long as possible. Flying the Beech Super 18 is like flying a magic train into a time when flying was more about the luxury experience and enjoying the view through huge picture windows.

For 16 years, SkyThrills has offered the best in aerobatic thrill rides available with our amazing fleet of aircraft. You will fly "hand's on" even if you have never been in a plane before. No flying experience is required. Choose to fly our Pitts S-2C or our Extra 300L aerobatic stunt plane for an "Extreme" experience. Or go "Classic" in our open cockpit biplane with two passengers in the front seat as you fly our 1930's our open cockpit Waco YMF-5C. This magical flying adventure can take you through loops and rolls or a gentle tour around downtown LA or Long Beach Harbor. Or choose to fly a real fighter plane hand's on, the Marchetti SF-260. We have the most exotic aircraft and flight programs anywhere - ranging from Mild-to-Wild, Classic-to- Extreme! So whatever flying adventure you crave,Blackstone Airways & SkyThrills will give you the best and most memorable experience possible. We are the "Thrill of a Lifetime!"

I called SkyThrills the morning I was hoping to fly....and I was able to get on the schedule later that afternoon( It was a weekday---I highly recommend calling several days/weeks ahead if you want to assure a reservation for a particular day and time, ESPECIALLY if you are looking to fly during a weekend). From the moment I walked in... More

My wife has always enjoyed watching the acrobatic planes at the various air shows we go to. I stumbled across this place and decided to give her a gift certificate. We couldn't have been more happy. They have several different tour options and planes. She chose the Pitts because of its acrobatic capabilities. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and... More

The first thing that I noticed when I walked into SkyThrills in Fullerton, CA was the amazing cleanliness in the hangar and the friendliness of the people who worked there. I am a pilot myself, and in all my years flying, I doubt I've ever seen so many immaculate airplanes in one place. The people at SkyThrills clearly love their... More

My wife got me a ride in the Waco biplane.as an anniversary gift. It was amazing. The feel of the open cockpit was so cool. Mike was a great host and let me fly nearly the entire time. The plane was a dream to fly. I would recommend this to anyone who loves to fly. I would have flown all... More

It was a great experience for both of us. A beautiful aircraft with a surprisingly roomy cockpit compared to other biplanes. Mike flew just as we wished, which was reassuring for us. We both feel like that we ticked one of the boxes by taking this flight. Mike will make it as exciting or soothing as you wish. Flying over... More

The pilot, the plane, the sky - all was so perfect;) We had the trip on bi-plane and we plan to do one in future maybe with acrobatics!

Blew away my expectations; quite possibly the coolest thing I have ever done in my life. I flew a stunt plane and performed aerobatic maneuvers. The plane has controls for both passengers, and the instructor(Mike) does a good job of explaining everything. I did rolls, flips, spins, hammerheads, flying upside down and a few more things, all with Mike guiding... More

I booked the 'Aerobatic World Champion' experience which was incredible. It's definitely one of the best things I have ever done and would do it again in a heartbeat. It's nearly been a week since I did this experience and I have been telling everyone how amazing it was! I opted to fly in the Extra 300L. The experience starts... More
