    For this experience, our partners are taking added measures to help prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. They are disinfecting all air crafts before and after each flight. Additionally they are taking all participants' temperatures before they are permitting entrance to their facility. They additionally have implemented a "Hold Harmless" waiver that all guests must sign in order to participate. Due to COVID-19, participants will also be required to purchase or bring their own aviation headset, or purchase a mic-cover for a rental headset.
