Loved every minute of it, our pilot Tiago was super friendly and fun to fly around with. We were all very nervous, but he was able to calm us down and made sure that we enjoyed our experience.

Fulfilled an item on my bucket list. Had always wanted to experience what it's like to actually fly an airplane and because of my wife's thoughtfulness, I have. My flight was everything I dreamed of and more. Not only was it fun and the aerial views breathtaking; it was so user friendly and easy and my pilot was outstanding. Friendly, courteous and explained so much to me as we both flew the plane. It was a wonderful experience for me and I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone. Take off and landing was beautiful and the entire flight was so smooth and enjoyable. I never felt safer in an airplane. My pilots name was Tiago I believe. He was from Portugal and a joy to meet, fly with and talk to. He even took pictures for me. Great guy and a great airplane ride experience. Thank you.

Pilot was very friendly and nice but did not know the area we flew over very well

The pilot (Rick) was quite pleasant and happy to take us in the direction that we requested. We enjoyed yhe experience a lot.

I offered to repair or improve a few items on the plane that were in mediocre condition. (i was an airplane maintenance instructor in the US Army...besides many other engineering endeavours)
