“This was a fantastic experience to actually fly a helicopter!!! It was thrilling. My best birthday gift ever! The only down side was that the warmup of the heliocopter was included in the 30 min of flight time.”
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Wow, Susan, please thank the amazing gift giver for us that got you your best birthday gift ever! You are correct that the warm up is included in your flight time - it is from engine start to engine stop. But, if you think about it, preparing for take off is one of the most important steps, and the first step, to learning how to fly a helicopter, and you can now say you've done that! We are so happy to hear you had such a fantastic and thrilling experience overall! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Kindest, Kelsey
“It was an awesome experience.”

Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi George, I'm so thrilled to hear you had such a great time learning how to fly a helicopter and that it made your top 3 experiences of a lifetime nonetheless! Hope to see you back soon for some more experiences of a lifetime. Cheers, Kelsey
“It was one of my most amazing experiences. I would definitely do it again.”
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hey Tochi thanks for the awesome review and we're glad you had such an amazing experience and hope you do come back to do it again or at least try out one of our other great experiences!
“Tanner was our instructor, he was great. The only downside was there was overcast, which prevented us from going more than 500 ft up, as well as we had to stay close to the airport. Looked forward to flying over our house, which we couldn't do.”
“very good instructor and I had a great time.”
