The Experience
The entire first time flight experiences take roughly 1-2 hours. After arriving and checking in, you take part in a personalized training session before gearing up to fly. During your flights your instructor teaches you to fly your body. You take turns flying one at a time with other first time flyers.

First Time Flyers:
2 Flights: $69.95
4 Flights: $119.95

For first time flights we recommend between 2 and 6 minutes of flight time per person. This gives you enough time to understand the basics of flying your body and is plenty of time for a great experience. For more pricing information, read our pricing article.

I also bought 2 gift certificates before the expected opening date for my daughter. When I came to visit to do this with her, they were there but closed. Said they only had a soft opening with one tunnel for one week but were closed down. I have not figured how to get my money back. Heard they will not be opening.

closed for business, stuck with groupon, no point of contact

I bought my Groupon in June for my daughter and I. My daughter was visiting this summer, they called me 2 days before our scheduled time and cancelled us for ongoing repairs. My daughter is coming back for Christmas and I tried to re-book. The company is now closed for remodel (which has been months now!) with no date of re-opening showing. I am stuck with these Groupon deals and want my money back but the website provided through Groupon is down/non existent and the phone # does not work! I am clearly upset and want my money back.

Received email from airborne stating that they needed to re schedule due to maintainence that needed to be carried out and they could not fit us in again during our time in San Diego . Very disappointed as this was pre booked weeks before our trip .
They did refund money altho it still cost me the exchange rate for paying for it on my card.

Airborne San Diego is a fantastic experience. Knowledgeable staff and very professional. My flying time was one of the most memorable times I have had. The staff is very informed, a tell you everything you need to know. The cafe is a welcomed addition and the food is very good. I can't wait to book the barbecue event room upstairs this summer.

Man what a facility! The architecture is beautiful both inside and out! They have two 14' tunnels side by side, a cafe serving food and drinks (including alcohol)! Very friendly staff and we had a great time getting to finally fly in this facility located in downtown San Diego! With the cheapest prices in the area it's hard to beat!!
