You and I guess can sit up in the front and the pilot was sitting in the back and you will get to see some great sites. You will get to see San Diego as well as La Jolla, Del Mar and many other great places in the city. It's going to be a wonderful time for you fill a lot of fun. Your heart will be racing as you fly over some of the most interesting places in California. You will fly low and slow so you are able to capture a lot of photos and have the time of your life. There will be a lot of aerial thrills as well.

You will get to see downtown of San Diego which is one of the most beautiful places in the world. If you are looking for the ultimate tour then this will be the place for you. Is going to be an amazing time as you fly in a biplane which is a World War I era type play. This is the type of plane that was used in World War I and it was used to fight. You will get to experience centuries old technology as you use it to fly low above the city and see a wonderful site. It's going to be an amazing experience that you never forget. It was used by a number of people and it was built the same month that Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic ocean and was used to carry air mail as well.

This is a plane that will last 20 minutes to an hour depending on which itinerary you choose. You'll be able to capture a lot of pictures and have great memories.

Head to Montgomery Field Airport six miles (10 km) north of downtown San Diego to board your open cockpit biplane. Up to two passengers can sit in the front cockpit, while the pilot operates the plane from the rear cockpit. Depending on the route you choose (see Itinerary below for options), see downtown San Diego, La Jolla, Del Mar, Torrey Pines, Mission Bay, Coronado or Rancho Santa Fe. You can choose to fly low and slow to capture amazing photos or get your heart pumping with some aerial thrills.

One of the biplanes was originally built in May of 1927, the same month that Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic, and was used to carry airmail. Another was built in November of 1929, right before the 1930 "St. Valentine's Day Massacre." It was owned by a detective agency in Chicago that used it to transport a gangster-sniffing bloodhound. The third biplane was fully restored and looks like it just came off the showroom floor!

Your biplane ride will last 20 minutes to an hour, according to the itinerary chosen. Conclude your memorable flight at Montgomery Field Airport.
