    We Had a Blast!!

    My wife and I had a great time! The wait time was short, the pilot was extremely friendly and and the flight was a ton of fun. This was my first time in a helicopter and I couldn’t have had a better pilot. He was calm, knowledgeable, and very informative. He made it look easy and the flight was very smooth. I will be going back as soon as I get a chance. Highly Recommended!
