"In a word: awesome! The pilot, Robin, was amazing. Very professional. Very engaging. The only negative would be the person at the reception desk at the airport (Johns Island Executive Airport). She was rude and did notify us of when our Pilot returned from his last flight, resulting in us wasting about 25 minutes. Other than that, it was a very wonderful experience."
"The fight was great, the pilot could not have been more professional. Enjoyed! "
"Amazing! Will never forget this experience!"
