Valentines Day with San Diego Sky Tours, by Erich Moulder

Valentines Day is a special day for the loved ones in our lives.  For me, I find it very stressful finding the right set of gifts to show my loved ones that I put some effort and thought into the gift.   Flowers, Candy, a card, YES, we need to do that anyway.   

If you need to find a Valentines Adventure for that truly active individual and the timing is right, our Air Combat Couples Tour is the ultimate afternoon fun, you both will have beautiful flying dreams for days.  

I know what you may be thinking, oh, the biplane is a little 'too edgy' or maybe I will get my stomach upset.  No,  everyone lands after these tours and says how surprised they are at the comfort, smoothness and surreal experience they just received.   Our pilots are well trained to determine what level of snappiness, aerobatics or smoothness that the customer prefers.  As a tour pilot myself, I would be embarrassed if I ever had someone get sick on my tour.   When the customer compliments me on my smooth landing I relish the moment with pride, nothing better!   On the other hand, if the passenger wants to go a little crazy we can definitely help them with that request too.

Our office and hangar is easy for anyone to access, comfortable and no lines or tight security.  You simply walk in the Gibbs Flying Service Lounge, have a seat and wait for our pilots to meet you.  Bring a sweatshirt if you want, but you won't need it. Camera phone or your own GoPro is perfect too. We walk you out to the hangar, show you around the vintage lounge, and offer you refreshments.  With our premium Air Combat Tour, we go the extra mile to put you in the scenario of a WWI fighter pilot.  We find a flight suit for you, introduce you to the team and begin our military style combat brief.  Hold on to your hats, you will be learning about WWI history, pilots and flight maneuvers from a former Marine Fighter Wing leader.  Colonel 'Pearl'  usually has everyone stand up and practice maneuvers in the hangar with airplane model briefing sticks. Fun Stuff!

I won't tell you about all the fun your are going to have flying, but after you don the flight suit, helmet and goggles, you will get carefully secured in your seat for the formation ride of your life.

The rest of the story is our little secret, but usually our customers hang out awhile after the flight comparing war stories and looking at their go pro videos and drinking some beer or wine.

Please call us with any questions, we would love to hear from you.
