"Had a great time. Now I want to get my pilot's license. "
"Overall good experience. Exciting and safe. Good instruction even in this one-off setting. Wish I could have flown a bit longer and gotten a more of a feeling for maneuvering. However, time was tight and my expectations were met. Thanks again to Kevin for navigating the delay caused by the race that morning, and getting me into the airport with an escort."
"It was a best experience and we had a beautiful day. Awesome time and we are planning to do it again. "
