“The pilot was great and the service was outstanding. The only problem was the helicopter being used for the flight lesson. It was the most rinky-dink, tiny and outdated helicopter I have seen. That definitely does not inspire confidence and encourage people to keep learning to fly. I also don't think it meets expectations in terms of what people think they will be flying when they sign up for the experience. For the money, I would have expected something a bit more current. Everything else about the experience was great.”
