The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Surf San Diego


5. An Oddball Day

Learn to fly a Top Gun Duel Aircraft: Varga VG-21.  

You and a friend can dogfight in a pair of Varga VG-21 airplanes out of Palomar Airport in Carlsbad, about an hour away from San Diego. An Incredible Adventures pilot sits next to you, but you do much of the flying. The prop planes won't make you feel like you're in Top Gun, but for $596 for the two of you, it's close enough.
