"I had a great time and everything went smooth with no issues. My flight instructor was awesome and made the event memorable. I will recommend this and the website to friends and I plan on booking this exact same package very soon."
"Our pilot Nick made the entire experience! He explained everything we were going to do, allowed me to fly the plane, and answered our numerous questions. You could not have a better pilot for this experience."
"I can't even begin to describe how awesome this experience was. It was so much fun that I'm not budgeting to continue flight lessons and getting my license. I called in to schedule my flight on Friday and hoped to get flying by the coming weekend. My booking agent who's name was Lydia? She couldnt guarantee it would be available but she was going to try. And try she did. She called me right at the end of business day to let me know the pilot was availble THE VERY NEXT DAY and off I went. The flight... Well I'll tell you one thing, I didn't expect to arrive, say hello, then go straight to the cockpit. That was pretty amazing. A complete noob behind the wheel as soon as you walked through the door!! I'd have to say that what really made my experience was the flight instructor. Nick Underwood was the most laid back and chilled out person I've ever met. Anybody that would even have a hint of fear would have their nerves calmed by flying under this guys wing. I've recommended this experience to many people now and I"ve told them that there is only one guy they should see. Thanks again. LOVED IT!!"
