Fly private to San Francisco, the city known as the gateway between the East and the West, and home to one of the largest metropolitan areas along the west coast of the United States.

San Francisco Jet Charter Service

San Francisco is a major city along the West Coast, and it’s the crown jewel of the Bay Area. The city is renowned for its liberal community, steep hills, cable cars, Victorian architecture, scenic landscapes, summer fog, and incredible ethnic & cultural diversity. There are 11 official governmental districts in San Francisco, and each district features unique, distinct culture offerings.

Despite being huge in terms of things to do, the city itself is quite compact, situated at the tip of a peninsula between the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific coast on a 7 square mile area – the city itself is only home to just over 800,000 residents, while the SF metropolitan area is home to over 7 million people.

Attractions & Activities

Hire a private plane for a charter flight to San Francisco, one of the most culturally diverse and liberal cities in the United States.

The iconic Golden Gate Bridge is an art-deco designed suspension bridge connecting San Francisco County to the North Bay area of California.

The bridge opened in 1937, and spans the Golden Gate Strait, a mile wide channel between the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

If you have the chance, drive the Golden Gate Bridge over to Sausalito early in the morning, when the bridge is often cloaked entirely in fog, making the next suspended cable ahead barely visible.

Cable cars provide easy access around the city, and panoramic views reward those who take the climb up Coit Tower. The area surrounding Fisherman’s Wharf is home to some of the best marine cuisine on the Pacific Coast, and the area surrounding Pier 39 is covered in shops, bars, cafes, and even sea lions.

If you arrive in time for lunch, make sure to head down Caledonia Street where all the best restaurants, cafes and shops are found.
