"The helicopter flight was awesome! We chose to fly over downtown Denver and loved every minute of it! Our pilot was great as well as the other staff members. The owner, Dennis, was so nice and welcoming! You can tell he is passionate about flying and is very knowledgeable about all of the helicopters on sight. The flight simulator was the best in the industry and was really cool -- you actually felt like you were flying a real helicopter!"
