Have you taken air tours where you feel like you're on an assembly line? This isn't one of them. This is not a listen to a recorded voice on the headset tour. This is a listen to air traffic control, talk to the pilot, and get a bird's eye view of LA. You depart from the famous One Six Right runway (there's a movie by that name). Our plane was a Cessna 182 which is a great plane for sightseeing. The company is a flight school - so they fly constantly teaching people to fly. I've flown in other 182s with other pilots - this pilot was truly outstanding. The narration he gave was excellent, the view was fantastic, and it was just a heck of a lot of fun. I would say that 45 minutes is probably the sweet spot. Thirty minutes will feel a bit rushed and after an hour it will seem a bit long. LA is big - but it's not that big and 45 minutes seems about perfect for seeing the best of it from the air. This one is highly recommended.

This was an amazing experience. Mike was fantastic. He provided details all over Los Angeles about the cities, venues, history and even locations of celebrities. We had our 9 month old son flying with us and he had a blast! Mike made us all feel at ease with his vast experience and qualifications. I would highly recommend this as a tour around LA or just any kind of flying in general.

Corsair offers the best air tours. I thought their plane was very nice and the pilot was very professional. We did the Deluxe tour which was awesome. It was very cool to see all the different sights of LA. I have been on helicopter tours before but the airplane tour covered much more in a similar amount of time. I would highly recommend this company to anyone!!
