Luxury Tours of Los Angeles - 3:00 13 May 2014

Russian Jet Parked at Los Angeles Airport

Sights to See on a Helicopter Tour of Los Angeles While Still on the Ground

We have been unable to positively identify this small Russian jet parked on the tarmac near our private Los Angeles tour helicopters.  We are not very good at cars (as our readers know) but even worse with aircraft.  Our blog research department examined hundreds of photographs of Russian jet aircraft before deciding that this might be an Aero L-39 training aircraft designed and built in the former Czechoslovakia for use in the Russian and 29 other air forces.  Known as the “Albatros” the aircraft has also found use as a very fast and light ground fighter capable of operating from -4 to +8 gs (a measure of maneuverability).  We could be photographing all the luxury corporate jets parked around us but we are so used to seeing them that it is the airplanes such as this Albatros that capture the attention of our camera lens.  In fact, this could be a Hollywood film aircraft getting ready for its closeup.  By the way, if you plan to travel in Russia and visit Sokol Airbase in Nizhny Novgorod (the home of MiG) you can arrange to fly in this Albatros or other MiG aircraft.

Fly Me to the Wine

We regularly take our private Los Angeles tour guests up to Malibu, or Santa Barbara or even Temecula for wine tasting adventures. As these are local wine areas we do them often and can arrange helicopter flights easily.  But everyone knows that Napa Valley is the champion wine growing region of California and, when requested, we have planned extravagant private tours by small jet up to that famed region.  Photo of small jet on tarmacSince even a quick tour to Napa from Los Angeles will be overnight we make all the hotel and dining arrangements for our guests by working with our Napa Valley partners to provide luxurious accommodations and gourmet meals.  Of course we handle all the ground and air transportation.  With the video and photographs we compile of our guests and their experience this kind of deluxe tour makes their visit to Los Angeles more than special.  We still expect to show them Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the beaches because that’s what most guests expect to see.  We just don’t want anyone to think we stop there.  Oh, no, we are prepared to do any kind of planning and preparation for our guests who want something more.
