This is our most popular tour, you'll see the best of Los Angeles like you've never seen it before.
Departing from Hawthorne Airport we will fly to the Port of Los Angeles Vincent Thomas Bridge, past the LA Cruise Ship Terminal and low along the seaport village toward Cabrillo Beach as we fly past terminal island home of the Federal Corrections Institution and the US Coast Guard Base. At Cabrillo beach we head north along the coast of Palos Verdes Peninsula, past the Point Fermin Light House, Korean Bell of Friendship, Trump National Golf Course, Portuguese Bend (where the Channel Islands broke off from the mainland millions of years ago), Wayfarers Chapel, Terranea Resort, Point Vicente Light House, the ship wreck remains of the USS Dominator and continue along the coast towards the beach cities of Los Angeles.
Flying low along the coast like a bird, you'll see dolphins and surfers as we fly along Torrance Beach, Redondo Pier, King Harbor, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, LAX (as planes take off right above us), El Segundo, Venice Beach, Marina Del Rey and the Santa Monica Pier.
Here we head east to start our journey towards the cities of the Stars. Flying past the Getty Museum, UCLA, Beverly Hills, Bel Air, West Hollywood along Hollywood Hills to Downtown Hollywood, Grauman's Chinese Theater, Kodak Theater and the Walk of the Stars.
You'll get your first look at the Hollywood sign as we head toward the San Fernando Valley. Known as "The Valley" you'll actually feel the temperature rise about 10 degrees as we are flying over the Hollywood Bowl toward Universal Studios and the Back Lot. Surrounded by many famous studios such as Warner Bros., Disney and NBC we will start our climb to the Hollywood sign.
Try to get more than four letters of the sign in your camera lens as we fly by. There is no way to get closer to the Hollywood sign than by helicopter. Look closely below as we pass by the sign for the Sunset Ranch Hollywood riding stables, they have a small Hollywood sign on the hills above them.
We now head toward Downtown Los Angeles, past the Griffith Observatory, over silver lake to "Dodgertown". That's right, Dodger Stadium is it's own zip code. Over Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, Walt Disney Concert Hall, LA City Hall and LAPD's Hooper Heliport. Flying along the east side of Downtown below the US Bank Tower, Nokia Center and the Staples Center (home of the LA Lakers).
The last leg of our tour heads south, flying over USC, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Hollywood Park before returning to Hawthorne Municipal Airport.
