Research shows that experiences, not material things, bring more happiness. Inspired by that concept, Carlsbad-based jet charter operator Schubach Aviation has introduced a new program, Elevated Excursions. The collection of highly curated, one-of-a-kind travel experiences leverage the time-saving benefits of private aviation to allow quick access to hard to reach destinations and the company’s network of ultra-luxury partners (cultivated over 29 years in business) to offer the ultimate one-day trip. All the details are taken care of, so not a moment is wasted – excursionists can be fully present and enjoy a new life experience.

Each bespoke excursion is offered upon request or on a specific date based around an elite event – there are trips for the thrill-seeker, wine enthusiast and auto aficionado! The flight details can be customized per the client’s needs. For example, the departure locale, group size and more.

A customized adventure awaits! Available Elevated Excursions include:
