The pictures really tell this story. It was a lot of fun to take off from the tiny McClellan-Palomar airport at Carlsbad and fly the little hop into Los Angeles. Needless to say, there was no food, no drink, and no amenity kits! Just a spectacular view from a tiny plane that took off and landed on time. Great flight!

Another nice thing about this trip was the way we returned the rental car. We went to the Holiday Inn where we had picked up the car. The car rental agent drove us right up to the airport. Really smooth and easy!
