Great experience, great team, very professional! Would recommend
Amazing - the guys were so helpful and friendly! Looking at the possibility of taking lessons with them. Great time had by all three of us :-)
Myself and 2 family members from UK took the flight and we had the best time and the best views in the world. My cousin was thrilled with the fact that she flew over the bridge, walked across it, sailed under it and then drove over it to go home all in the one day. Considering she had never seen it before that was quite an effort. Our pilot was wonderful. Well worth the spend.
