awesome opportunity

Rating on behalf of my son who actually took the flight - he loved every minute and was treated so nicely by the pilot. From my experience excellent firm to deal with just make sure you do what they say and ring at the times they say etc (they do not ring you) to cancel due to weather. Very accommodating with us for rebooking due to unseasonably strong winds and rescheduling on a public holiday even! Thank you so much would very much recommend.

Thank you so much and we are so pleased your son enjoyed his experience. We do like our clients to ring for a weather check rather than the pilot ringing as they get so busy at times that it could easily be missed. It seems to work well so far. :) Hope your son gets the chance to do it again!

Amazing Experience!!

The Team Went "Above and Beyond" Literally to accomodate us. There was a hiccup due to the online booking and they were not meant to fly Sunday. We had travelled in from out of town, and they called the pilots who were there within 15mins to take us on our flight. What an Amazing Experience, and we highly recommend this company and the friendly Staff! Will definitely be back again. Thank you R

Thank you so much for your positive review. It was a pleasure to be able to make this happen for you and so sorry for the wait that you had while we 'scrambled' our pilots lol. Look forward to seeing you in our aircraft again in the future. :)
