We flew with Bentley and he was awesome - the entire Aerodynamic Aviation team was great. We loved exploring Big Sur from the sky and would highly recommend it to anyone who is considering going for a ride!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi there Lindsay, Wow- your experience sounds "plane" awesome! I am happy to hear that our Bentley was truly able to truly make this a special experience for you, as well as the rest of the team. We hope that your were able to explore some new sights while up in the air. Cheers to new memories! Chandi
Our flight in Monterey was amazing. Israel warned us that it might be foggy down towards Big Sur, so he took us to see a couple golf courses then we headed up towards Santa Cruz. Because of the cloud cover, he elongated the trip and took us everywhere we wanted to go. We toured all over Santa Cruz and the coast. Would definitely do it again!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello, Evan!  Wow! I love that Israel was so accommodating for your experience when Mother Nature decided to act up a bit! It makes us so happy to know that you were in such great hands and that our partners took so much care to ensure your flight was absolutely awesome. I'm glad you all got to see some beautiful sights over Santa Cruz! We would love to get you flying again soon!  Best, ​Sophia 
Fantastic experience! Surprised the BF for his birthday and he loved it. Knowledgable and accommodating instructor. Would highly recommend.
Great views of the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel, and the coastline down to Pt. Sur. Our pilot, Israel, was great in pointing out the sights along the way . We thoroughly enjoyed our flight and highly recommend it.
We had an amazing time. The guys at Aerodynamic Aviation went above and beyond to help us with some scheduling conflicts. Our pilot was so impressive. We spent 6 days exploring the PCH and wine country and this was by far the highlight of our trip.
