This group is for Bay Area general aviation enthusiasts and anyone who wants to travel, sightsee, shoot photos, and take part in flying adventures we put together. If you're a pilot, we'll put you in touch with passengers who might want to fly with you. If you're a passenger, we'll put you in touch with pilots who might want you to come along on flying trips and adventures we organize.
Our trips may be as brief as a 30-minute sightseeing flight over the Golden Gate or as long as a weekend rafting trip to the Kern Valley or a week-long ski trip to Tahoe or Utah. If you've never traveled in a small plane, you might be surprised at the amazing views that California has to offer, sights you'd never see from a commercial airliner.
Membership in Pilots and Friends is free to passengers and you'll never be asked to pay more than your share of the flight cost (typically $40-50/hr total). Food, lodging, and excursions, would be extra.
