Bird's Eye View of the City of Angels Picture this: The Sun is slowly setting on the horizon while your private plane rounds about the Hollywood sign. As the orange rays begin to glint off the airplane wings, you soar over the concrete jungle of Downtown LA. You pass iconic LA destinations like the Staples Center, the Hollywood Bowl, and Universal Studios (my personal favorite) from above and you are overcome with a sense of peace and nostalgia that can only make you reminisce about how lucky you are to be alive on this beautiful planet. Well, that's exactly how it feels to take a ride with Air Discovery LA! Alex was a great pilot who made the flight fun and memorable. We took this flight as a birthday present for one of our closest friends, and it was nothing short of magical. The 30 minute flight gave as aerial views of the Hollywood sign, Downtown LA, Dodgers Stadium, Universal Studios, and Griffith Observatory. Though we took the sunset "Welcome to Hollywood" tour, there are also great reviews of the Night Sky Experience and the LA experience. The 60 minute flight allows you to see all the above plus Santa Monica, the Pacific Ocean, Malibu Hills, Calabasas (oooh Kardashians!), and the mountains. Highly recommend these flight tours!
Amazing amazing experience! Can I give ten stars?? I am recommending Air Discovery LA to everyone I know. Alex was a sweetheart and easy going and a great pilot. My mom was visiting me and I wanted her to see la in a cool way. My partner is afraid of heights and my mom is a chicken but Alex made the experience amazing and everyone was so happy afterwards. The ride was so smooth and tranquil. Forget all the helicopter tours you see, you can go flying all over the LA area and Malibu for a hour for a faction of the cost and with better quality and up to three people for the same flat rate. Thank you so much! We will be back again!!
Where do I start off? Alex was by far the best pilot and he definitely made our flight comfortable and worth the money! It was my first time ever flying on a plane, although i did get a little queazy but I didn't mind, my body never felt this experience before, but I will definitely come back with my boyfriend for the night tour. I'm glad this became a great anniversary gift. Thanks Alex for giving us a beautiful tour!
What a awesome experience. Cant believe I didn't do this sooner. I love real estate, architecture, and cityscapes and i got all that and more. Took the 30 min tour and saw all of Hollywood and DTLA. Thanks Alex for your hospitality. He took the time to explain everything and answered all our questions and didn't rush our tour.
AH-MAZING EXPERIENCE!! Took the 30min tour during sunset hour and it was perfect! Also our pilot was the kindest and was such an awesome host/tour guide. I had a GREAT time! If you don't believe me, just check out these pics...
It was such an amazing experience doing the night skies tour . I did 30 minutes which I purchased off of Groupon for my boyfriends birthday . The plane is very small, we fit tightly in the back seat but I loved the view it was indescribable!
Not sure where to even begin... LA aerial view is breathtaking at night and thanks to Alex the experience was even more memorable. Alex was very professional as well as entertaining during the entire tour. He was diligent at scheduling our appointment and prompt when delivering the requested services. He managed to squeeze in our appointment on a busy schedule for our special occasion. Overall, Alex is a team player and truly spectacular at what he does. I chose this as a birthday surprise for my boyfriend's birthday and needless to say he was very impressed by it. We took the Night Skies of LA tour, which lasted about 45 minutes. You get to visit the Hollywood Sign, Griffith Park Observatory, Santa Monica Pier, and other DTLA's notorious attractions. Altogether, it was a fascinating and mesmerizing evening. Like Alex said, there is truly not a word you can use to describe the entire experience. You must see it for yourself... I guarantee is it worthwhile experience.
It was my boyfriend and I's first time! Service was good anytime I had a question and called I always got an answer. We purchased the 60 min tour but really were only on the tour for about 40 mins. Which was fine because We felt like we were there for more than enough time. Saw Hollywood, Malibu, Santa Monica, downtown La, Griffith Park, etc. We had the MOST BEAUTIFUL SUNSET! Loved it. Very beautiful. Got a little light headed because we kept Taking pictures. LOL DEFINITELY take your time to enjoy the moment. Lesson learned. LOVE IT.
I took my sister for a flight on her birthday and she absolutely loved it! The ride took us all around Los Angeles and we got to see some great landmarks from above- Hollywood sign, Dodgers Stadium, Echo Park, etc. Alex was so sweet and made us super comfortable. We had a great time and I can't wait to do it again!
Honestly this was an EPIC experience!! It blew my expectations out of the water! Alex was kind, fun but a very responsible pilot & host. I never questioned my safety. I saw so much including the Hollywood sign, DTLA , Sunset Strip, Beverly Hills & even the Santa Monica Pier & ocean! Amazing doesn't even begin to describe just how rad this was!!! Obviously if you're reading this, you need to go!! I imagine it would make a terrific date night too!
Amazing experience! The flight instructer was really informative and very nice. The sights we saw were dope as well! Highly recommend!!
Exceptional experience. We were recommended to take a later time slot due to the high LA heat during the middle of the day. Definitely glad we did. We ended up going around sunset and got to see the fog roll over downtown LA and see the sun go down from above the clouds. Would recommend to all our friends and families.
Great experience! The sunset was beautiful and Downtown view was amazing!!
Had a AMAZING experience today with Alex as our pilot. Breath-taking views and went at a perfect time (4:30-5pm ish) definitely recommend the hour tour, you get to see all of LA and get super close to the Hollywood sign. Had a amazing pilot/guide as well! Thank you so much Alex!
My kids (and myself) had a blast! The clouds kinda ruined it so we had to cut it short. But it was still awesome! We will definitely fly with Alex again!
My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience. It was a clear day so we had some great views. He was nice enough to fly us over UCLA and other locations we requested. We felt very safe overall. Highly recommend!
This was an AMAZING experience!I suprised my bf for his birthday with a night sky tour and it was more than i expected.Our pilot was very friendly and he gave us an amazing view of LA!Definitely would recommend to ANYBODY!
Such a fun and amazing experience! Would highly recommend to anyone, Alex was very knowledgeable and friendly! I would honestly do it again, it’s perfect for a fun, not so average, date night!
Our pilot was friendly and gave my kids and I a wonderful tour of LA, out to Malibu and then back by the Hollywood sign. I'd recommend Air Discovery to my friends and family.
Awesome experience. Alex was amazing at giving us the full tour. Highly recommend
Had an amazing time on Air Discovery. Flight went smoothly and saw places in LA from a whole new viewpoint. Fully recommend to anyone thinking of booking this experience!
Russel Smith was our pilot and he was the best pilot and tour guide altogether! He took the time to explain everything from how to fly a plane to the history of Lake Tahoe. He even explained what happens when fires or floods happen in the area. I had no idea how interesting nature can be and what these locals deal on a day to day basis, but Russel gives a great insight on that. It was so much fun!
Great views and great pilot!
1st time in a small plane but he made it so fun. He offered to let me fly under his guidance but I was too afraid. I did however get to see the city in the best way possible as a bird. I’d totally do it again and I plan to make a flyover tour a feature of every trip I take in the future.
Had a fun flight around LA! The picture of the Hollywood sign doesn't do it justice, we got a lot closer. Great pilot and they were super flexible!! Next time we will be doing the tour at night!
Our experience with Air Discovery LA was awesome!!! Our pilot Alex made our flight fun and had a lot of knowledge of the area we were flying over. It’s a once in a life time MUST!!
Phenomenal experience. Was the highlight of our vacation. Alex is so personable and gave us a once in a lifetime experience. This is a must on your bucket list for LA
AMAZING EXPERIENCE WOW! MUST GO! ALEX WAS SUCH A GREAT PILOT AND HUMBLE
First time flying, was great...
Wow!!!! What an experience! Alex is an awesome pilot! This is the only way to see LA.
Booking was easy, our pilot Alex was knowledgeable and experienced pilot, we got to see the Hollywood sign, Griffith’s observatory and stunning views, take off and landing was smooth and not noticeable!
I took my mom and sister as a surprise. They were hesitant at first to enter the plane, but they were thrilled in the end. Thank you Alex for making this experience amazing! We will never forget it.
It was very interesting experience. Great views,sunset and our Pilot Moe was very nice and also very friendly. I would definitely recommend them to my friends !
I took my boyfriend as a surprise for his 35th birthday. I walked him in blindfolded and the staff immediately hopped on board(without prompting) teasing him about what was in store for his surprise (saying stuff like "oh yeah we're getting the lion cage ready now." Our pilot Alex was awesome and a pleasure to ride with, he answered all of our questions. Thanks to Air Discovery, my boyfriend's birthday was amazing!
Amazing pilot, great aircraft, stunning views. Best afternoon I’ve had in a long time!!! Whether a tourist or an LA native, this is a breathtaking and unique way to experience the city from above.
This was an AMAZING ride! We had a great time and saw amazing landmarks! Thank you Air Discovery LA !!!
