Do you ever dream of reaching the stars? While you might not get quite that high, you can touch the sky here in North County. If you’ve always wanted to know what it feels like to be a bird, you’ve hit the jackpot. There are many experiences in the area that allow you to fly, some more daring than others. Here’s a look at the opportunities that await you, should you have the courage.
Take a hot air balloon ride
For those that want to have a flying experience that pairs well with champagne, try taking a hot air balloon ride. There are a few outfits in the area that offer morning flights and sunset rides. Sky’s the Limit Ballooning Adventures operates out of Carlsbad and takes riders on a champagne evening flight. Compass Balloons flies out of Del Mar and treats passengers to sunset rides along the coast. If you’d like to explore nearby Temecula, then take a ride with California Dreamin’ and watch the sun rise over wine country.
Jump out of a plane
If you’ve got a daredevil spirit, then perhaps jumping out of a plane should be your next adventure. GoJump in Oceanside offers the only tandem skydiving experience in Southern California with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. They also offer solo jumps for licensed skydivers as well as one-on-one coaching for those who really enjoy freefalling from 13,000 feet. If you’d like to have the feeling of skydiving while staying much closer to the ground, then try iFLY in Oceanside. This indoor skydiving experience is suitable for nearly everyone of all ages. With the addition of Virtual Reality, you’ll feel like you’re flying over your dream location. Each flight in the vertical wind tunnel lasts 60 seconds and is the equivalent of 1.5 skydiving jumps.
Fly through the air with the greatest of ease
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly through the air like a real trapeze artist? You can find out for yourself at Trapeze High in Escondido. It’s the only trapeze school in San Diego and teaches people of all ages, skills, and abilities. They offer a variety of classes for both groups and individuals. You’ll learn to swing, fly and catch from trained instructors. It’s a great way to face your fears under the safest possible conditions.
Become a pilot
If you’re serious about learning to fly, then why not invest in some actual flight training? At Pinnacle Aviation Academy in Carlsbad, you can learn to fly for fun or for a career. They offer a Discovery Flight that lets you get a firsthand taste of what it’s like to learn how to fly a Cessna Single Engine Aircraft. After that, you can work towards your Private Pilot Certificate.
