"This was our first helicopter ride. Although I was nervous, it was a nice ride. The pilot was very informative and gave us a beautiful sunset tour over Tampa Bay. The only thing I have negative to say is the ride was too short for the money. "
"I had an opportunity to meet Nathan, Parker and Kyle during my pre-planning and it was an excellent experience, with all 3 of the guys helping with creative ideas for my marriage proposal. Thanks again for everything, and I plan on recommending your experience to others."
"This was a superb and exhilarating experience! The pilot was excellent -- very informative and accommodating. We would do this again at another venue."
