Cary has a an easy going confidence that makes even the nervous passenger feel right at home. He adjusted the flight to meet our interests and preferences where possible.

The flight experience itself was terrific. It was beautiful flying along the coast and Pacific Ocean
It would be great if the additional fees were already included with the purchase of the voucher. I had read the fine print, so I knew it was coming. But regardless it still added an extra point of frustration when it came time to pay again. I would have preferred to have just paid a larger amount up front and have avoided it.

This was our wedding anniversary activity and my husband and I both loved it! My husband got to fly the plane once we were in the air. Overall, this was a great experience! I made sure to email the business before purchasing the voucher to check for availability. After that, booking was easy. There's an extra $47 or so additional fee to pay before the flight but it's worth it!

The instructor was on time and we got started right away. I was also able to change my flight when I arrive to go over Catalina island.

The pilot Carey was super chill.

The experience itself is wonderful. This business needs significant work.
The experience was amazing. I am not sure when my son will quit talking about getting to fly a plane to anyone who will listen. My experience with the company was not nearly as positive. Completely unresponsive over the phone, awkward and brief interactions by email, constantly having our flight re-scheduled, only available booking times two months after purchase, surprise $40 taxes due the day of the flight.... the list goes on and on.
