Customer Reviews

"I only did the taster flight but what a great experience. The chance to fly the helicopter for a few minutes was a wonderful opportunity. Jason and Kevin, the pilots, were friendly, knowledgeable and put everyone at ease. They even made the obligatory safety briefings informative and enjoyable. The whole experience leaves you wanting more!!"
