I had a thoroughly enjoyable time with the Sandy our pilot, she was informative, congenial and a consummate professional.Kate Hudson
Would just like to say thank you for the fantastic experience of flying with you today. I had a very enjoyable time and my family commented on how friendly your staff were while they were waiting. Each staff member asked if they were ok or needed anything each time they walked past them. Again thank you very much for the day.
