Went flying in the Bay Area

Hey there!
Today I went flying (on the co-pilot seat, but it was still awesome) in a de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver in the San Francisco Bay Area. Luckily we had the best weather for flying today. I took some photos and thought I’d share the best ones with you guys!
Hope you enjoy :)

The Beaver and it’s gorgeous engine

The cockpit (throttle reminds me of IF‘s C208)

The Golden Gate Bridge

Downtown SF


Neat. Going there this summer

What airport? I’d love to know as I often see these small aircraft flying around when I fly from SFO which is very often for me as I am also in the Bay!

The planes are departing at the Commodore Center Seaplane Base near Sausalito, CA. They have the Beavers and a helipad over there. :)

Hello from the south San Francisco Bay Area! :D

You should really stop by SJC sometime in the future while you are in the Bay :D

Also, does the place you were at have an ICAO code


Well, you definitely live in at a nice place! :)

I’d love to come to KSJC in the future, maybe when Lufthansa resumes service to it. At the moment I need to fly to KSFO because of my status at Star Alliance, but I did see the airport a couple of times during approach into KSFO.

The airport I flew from does not have an ICAO code as far as I know.

Well, United and ANA both fly to SJC and they are both Star Alliance :D

Hopefully Lufthansa resumes EDDF-KSJC service once they receive their Dreamliners

BA brings a B789 to SJC (EGLL-KSJC) and they are profiting pretty well on that (but they are in OneWorld)


I don’t think that’ll be anytime soon :(

They ended it due to low demand I believe and they already have the A388 and A346 service to SFO

I have never personally heard of the airport you flew from, but I will definitely research more about it and see if I can ever visit (I’ll be flying out of SFO on Friday!)

Also, my dad has Star Alliance Gold with United so I rarely fly out of SJC (and always SFO instead!)
