"This was one of the best experiences of my life!! It was also a huge accomplishment for my husband who has not been in the air in 15 years before Tuesday. Our pilot was excellent and really made everyone feel secure! I can not thank you enough for this incredible adventure. It was so delightful to see the city from that view on such a beautiful clear day!"
