What you'll do

Learn aerial photography from a production pilot

We'll fly high above LA as I teach you how to get movie-perfect shots. First we'll prep at Tomorrow's Aeronautical Museum, where you'll learn tricks I mastered during my career providing aerial footage for movies, TV, and music videos. Then we'll soar above the city for 75–90 minutes. Back on the ground, we'll cap off an exhilarating afternoon with a group photo with your pilot and crew in front of the helicopter.

Impulsive and free-spirited, I'm one of the few African American helicopter pilots in the entertainment industry. With 21,000+ hours of flight under my belt, I can fly the hell out of almost anything.

Wonderful experience. This was my husbands and my first time in a helicopter. The ride was personalized to us. We both grew up in L.A. and Robin made the trip special- he hovered over our hometown blocks we grew up on. It was super cool to see from above! He took us from city to the beaches and it was definitely an experience anyone should have at least once in their lives. More than just the ride, Robin shares his life story and all the amazing things he does with the inner city youth in specific to Compton area. Robin is a rare gem giving back to the community and to those who wouldn’t get the chance had it not been for him. It a beautiful success story and it was a great ride! Totally recommend!

This experience was above and beyond my expectations! It is so amazing what Robin is doing at TAM. His background is fascinating and he is super passionate about what he does. He made sure to tailor the experience to exactly what we wanted to see. Loved that we got to tour the museum before the flight and loved that he put little touches such as narration and awesome music in the background during the experience. Would highly recommend!

This was an unique experience - it is not just a simple helicopter tour flying above LA. Robin has an impressive story to tell how he got to where he is right now, and how he is supporting children that don't have the best starting conditions to get into flying and aviation knowledge with the "Tomorrow's Aeronautical Museum". You will get to know a lot of different projects they are working on right now at that place, including building rockets, competing with top universities around the globe. Previous to the flight, you can tell Robin exactly what you want to see from LA and he will plan the route based on your input while you are enjoying delicious breakfast from the food truck at the airfield. The flight itself was awesome, I got to see and take pictures of LA downtown, pretty close to the skyscrapers, and then fly above Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the beaches. The money you pay for this trip will support the "Tomorrow's Aeronautical Museum", so that's another bonus point. Overall I was very positively surprised what was expecting me; I would definitely do this again anytime! Thanks Robin!
