The San Francisco Bay Tour is one of the most exciting flights you can experience with stunning views of Silicon Valley, Stanford campus, Downtown San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, Crystal Springs, and the Pacific Coastline. The views are absolutely breathtaking!

But the challenge is to navigate the busy San Francisco Airspace and communicate with the fast-talking, no-nonsense ATC. With multiple transitions routes and IFR departures and arrivals at SFO International Airport, the interlocking “Bravo,” “Charlie,” and “Delta” airspace can be very intimidating.
