Jeff was my pilot. He asked if I wanted to fly before we took off and I replied I did. Once we were off the ground he turned the stick and pedals over to me and guided me through the process. It was a real thrill to have complete control over the flight. If you are a sailor think of the sweet spot going to windward... this is your speed. Think of bearing off to pick up speed in order to go up wind... and you are truly going to weather. Its a neat experience especially for a racing sailor. The Hollister airport is worth the experience also, lots of vintage aircraft.

They delivered everything promised with no hassel. Great experience.
