Good Afternoon Upasana!  It is great to hear from you and thank you for writing in! It was a pleasure reading how much you enjoyed the helicopter lesson and that our instructors were informative and patient! We appreciate your kind words and hope to see you again soon for another pleasant day out. Regards, Chelsea
“The overall experience was awesome. One thing I would like to note to better the experience for others. My voucher only indicated that this was at the Gateway airport in Kissimmee and did not reference anything about Max Flight Helicopter Services. When i arrived at the airport i went to the front desk which had never heard of this service nor did they know where to send me. I tried calling Cloud9 but they were closed. We drove around for over a half hour and almost missed my experience. Luckily after stopping at multiple locations someone was able to direct me to Max Flight. I arrived more than 30 minutes late because of Cloud9's lack of information. Max Flight was very accommodating and understanding of the situation. Which I was grateful for. I can only suggest that Cloud9 add this information (Max Flight) on the voucher for future customers so they will be able to give a 5 star rating for their overall experience. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to fly a helicopter.”

Good Afternoon Dan!  I hope you have had a great start to your week! I appreciate you taking the time to write in and the helpful feed back regarding directions! We have not had this brought to attention before, so  I will find a way to make it more clear that the flight is with Max Flight services to prevent this from occurring in the future. I am happy to hear that once you did find the location you did enjoy your time up in the air with the controls in hand. Thank you again for all of your helpful feedback and please let us know if you need anything else in the future.  All the best,  Chelsea 
“This experience was AMAZING! Joseph was a great teacher and made this flight wonderful! Everything was as described and quite memorable.”
“i worked on helicopters in the marines and have flown plenty of times, but grabbing the controls and actually piloting was one of my all-time favorite experiences. I wish i had the time and expendable funds to jump in and get my license. For now the experience itself will have to do. Loved it!!”
“Flying the helicopter was a great experience. The pilot was very knowledgeable and thorough. I highly recommend it. ”
