Our Favorite Charter Flights
Experience Vintage Air Travel to Our Favorite Destinations
Traveling in our fully restored 1957 Beech Super 18 airliner is a magical flying experience. You will be transported back in time to when air travel was not only the fastest and safest way to travel but also the most comfortable and luxurious. It was for those who had a sense of adventure and airlines at the time often gave their guests an aerial tour of points of interest along the way. It was not uncommon to take "the scenic route" and pilots sometimes flew a bit lower and slower so that their passengers had a better view of the scenery below. We feel that offering our clients a vintage flying experience with amazing service is something we all can appreciate. We strive to make the flying experience special again while arriving at our destinations in vintage style.
These are our favorite destinations that we are currently serving and would love to share with you. We will fly the most beautiful route, not the shortest. We can fly higher and faster, but we prefer to fly a bit lower and somewhat slower so that the flying experience can be more thoroughly enjoyed. We also offer vintage wines, champagne, and gourmet eats if desired. Taking excellent care of our clients every step of the way is our main priority. Treating you and your guests like family while making everyone feel at home in the sky is the reason Blackstone Airways was born.

We will depart from our private building at the Fullerton Municipal Airport (Near Disneyland) and fly you and your party to Napa County Airport (KAPC) with up to 6 passengers in style. Upon arrival at our Fullerton Terminal, you will be served a bottle of chilled Veuve Clicquot Champagne or VOSS water as you take your seats on board our 1957 Beech Super 18 airliner. Once airborne, we will take you on a tour of downtown LA, the Hollywood sign and the Hollywood Hills as we head toward Malibu then past Santa Barbara. We will then pick up the coastline and fly at a low but comfortable altitude of 2,500' so that the coastal views can be enjoyed out both sides of the aircraft through our huge "picture windows" that are reminiscent of riding a high-speed train through France. We will point out the sights along the way as you will be in constant communication with your pilots through our custom Bose noise cancelling headsets. We will fly along Highway 1 to the Golden Gate Bridge where we will make our turn into the San Francisco Bay and descend into Napa County. This is the most luxurious and beautiful way to see California on our way to the only wine capital in the United States. This is truly amagical and epic flight that most people have not experienced since the 1960s.

Depart from our private building at the Fullerton Municipal Airport with up to 6 passengers and fly to Catalina Island in pure vintage luxury. We will fly over Los Alamitos Army Airfield, the Naval Weapons Station in Seal Beach, past the Queen Mary and Long Beach Harbor on our way across the Gulf of Catalina for our 22 mile crossing. We will climb to 2,500' as we search for whales and mega dolphin pods. Landing at Catalina's Airport in the Sky is like taking a trip back in time to the 1940s. Not much has changed here in the last 60 years. You can have a relaxing lunch overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Catalina's gorgeous interior. We often see Catalina's free ranging Buffalo herd. We will stay with you if you are having lunch with us or we can leave you on the island if you choose to stay and explore the island. We will gladly return to pick you up at the end of your trip but you will have to purchase a second flight. This is the fastest, most luxurious and comfortable way to reach Catalina Island from the mainland. Enjoy our closest and most fun destination just 22 miles south of Long Beach.
