Reno, San Francisco, LA to Burning Man

OUR 11TH YEAR OF FLIGHTS TO BLACK ROCK CITY

Nobody has done more flying to Burning Man than Advantage, and no air service has volunteered more, contributed more or participated more in our event. We're a Burner-owned, Burner-operated FAA Part 135 Air Charter Operator, and we look forward to welcoming you to our dusty skies!

Thank you everyone for helping us reach our 1,400th Playa Flight in 2014!


Many Flight Times Available Daily from Reno, SF Bay, SoCal, and the West

The BRC Air Shuttle™ flies between Burning Man/Black Rock City and Reno, San Francisco, and Burbank, and our BRC Regional Services fly you from anywhere in the West. We welcome individual travelers as well as groups. Click the Book Your BRC Air Shuttle Flights or BRC Regional Flights buttons below.

As the first and only Burner-owned, Burner-operated Air Charter Operator serving the event continuously over the last ten years, we’ve done our best to offer great prices and services combined with the highest level of safety, honesty, integrity, and fun. Since 2005, we’ve built and donated the first Black Rock City air terminal, financially supported dozens of Burning Man projects, and worked every year with BRC Airport and the FAA to improve air safety. Our people serve the event community as Rangers, city builders, artists, and theme camp organizers with thousands of volunteer hours contributed in creating art, service, and inspiration on the playa.

Experience - Integrity - Safety - Contribution - Fun. Welcome to our Dusty Skies!
