"This was an experience I will remember for a lifetime! It was all and more than I had expected. Being able to handle the flight controls and experience the feeling of being in control was exhilarating! It is something I would highly recommend. My pilot, Joseph Edwards, was extremely professional, helpful, and friendly. He literally gave me a flight lesson. This was not just an "airplane ride". I loved it!"
