"The pilot was most knowledgeable, extremely friendly and helpful, and instilled a great sense of security and comfort in me. Recognizing my 86 year age, the pilot was most helpful in assisting me into the co-pilot position, helping with all seat belt installations, and he, in general, provided a wonderful, memorable "bucket list" experience for me...'kudos' to the pilot!"
