Full description

The tour commences at Hawthorne Airport, where the departure takes place, and passengers embark on an unforgettable journey. Flying towards the Port of Long Beach, the aircraft gracefully circles around the majestic Queen Mary, navigating through the bustling Port of Los Angeles until reaching the iconic Vincent Thomas Bridge.

Continuing the aerial adventure, the flight glides past the vibrant LA Cruise Ship Terminal and skims along the scenic Ports of Call, guiding the aircraft towards the picturesque Cabrillo Beach. As the flight soars above Cabrillo Beach, the course changes to a northward direction, tracing the captivating coastline of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Along this mesmerizing route, passengers witness notable landmarks such as the enchanting Point Fermin Lighthouse, the symbolic Korean Bell of Friendship, remnants of World War II bunkers, the renowned Trump National Golf Course, the historically significant Portuguese Bend (where the Channel Islands separated from the mainland eons ago), the ethereal Wayfarers Chapel, the luxurious Terranea Resort, the guiding beacon of Point Vicente Lighthouse, and even the remnants of the shipwrecked SS Dominator.

The journey continues as the flight glides along the captivating coastal path towards the enchanting beach cities of Los Angeles.
