Firstly, the flight was amazing and extremely well organised. The day was clear and we had wonderful views of Sydney Harbour etc. A spectacular harbour from the ground but extremely impressive from the air and flying at such a low height you see and appreciate so many points of interest from a very different angle. WOW. Great on ground facilities with excellent amenities and staff. Our pilot for the flight was Cameron Clarke. A very professional young man whom instilled every bit of confidence in us, both before and during the flight. We will definitely be recommending the company and the team. Email instructions from our booking were clear and we had no problem finding the terminal.Rosemary Ryan
