Response from Cloud 9 Living
Good Afternoon Farhan,  So happy to read you excelled during your first flight lesson in a helicopter. What a great experience! I will be sure to let our pilots know how much fun you had. We hope to see you out on another adventure soon! All the best,  Chelsea
“This was a fantastic addition to our vacation. We booked 2 back-to-back lessons with Matt. He was patient and knowledgeable, and took his time explaining the instruments and different maneuvers. It was my first instruction on a helicopter and, even with the doors off, I felt safe and it was a great ride!”
“WOW! I got to full-on fly a helicopter! What more can I say! This Cloud 9 Living experience was top-shelf from start to finish. Very easy to set up. Very professionally handled administratively. Very professional & outstandingly-talented training pilot. Very friendly & helpful airport ground staff. Bucket list item checked off in fine fashion!!!”
“This was a great time. Would love to do it again!”
“My instructor was very knowledgeable and explained everything very well. I have a private pilot's license so it was easy to understand what he was explaining. He took the time and the patience to show me how to control the helicopter. It was a great experience!”
“What an amazing and thrilling experience this was! It is a legitimate introductory flying lesson, which qualifies for actual flight credit. The coolest part is getting to actually fly the aircraft, which I was allowed to do as much as my capability allowed (my instructor, Mike, was excellent). The Schweizer 300 is basically a bubble with 2 seats, so it's not for the faint of heart. That said, if you're heading to Vegas and thinking about purchasing a helicopter tour for the experience of riding in a helicopter, forget it. Do this instead!!!”
“The instructor, Kyle, was very good and was very helpful.”
“Mike our flight instructor at Airwork was excellent. Friendly and professional. Excellent helicopter pilot. Took time to explain things and answer questions. When flying he was encouraging and there to assist whenever needed. This is an experience anyone can and should do and Mike made it awesome. ”
“Airwork was above and beyond in their knowledge, friendliness, and professionalism. The experience was easy to book and enjoyable from start to finish. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone interested in flying. ”
“Absolutely incredible life experience!”
“Can't wait to do it again!”
“Leslie the pilot the incredible!”
“Matt was a great instructor and spent a lot of extra time with me. Also Cloud9 has been very patient with me scheduling and rescheduling experiences. Steve”
“Ground school was very informative. Instructor went through how the helicopter controls work, what they are for, how they operate, safety information... all in all very through!... Was lucky enough as being the first flight of the day to go through with the pilot all safety checks, in which he explained what he was doing or looking for! Explained pre-flight checks and controls. Flight was fantastic! Especially being able to take over the controls and seeing what a helicopter is capable of and learning how hard they actually are to fly! Would recommend this experience to anyone!!... Awesome time!... Got my money's worth and more!!”
“It was an amazing experience, actually flying a helicopter. Larry the instructor gave me the confidence to feel comfortable flying, and had the patience and just the right attitude.”
“My overall experience was absolutely amazing; truly a phenomenal few hours. Louis the pilot was a wealth of knowledge and I felt exremely confident and comforatble with him and the equipment. I would recommend this tour to anybody looking for a real adventure. My only recommendation would be to provide trsnsportaion assitance such as a prefered taxi company (and to let customer know to order the taxi at least 30 minutes before you need it to pick you up). An alternative to a taxi would be bus information and provide details how to get there from the strip. This criticsm however was purely logistics and had nothing to do with the actual flight. Thank you for making a dream come true. We definaltey will book another Cloud 9 experience. ”
“It was fantastic, the pilot was not a 10, he was more like a 20. Thank you, Verlan Ward”
“The provider (name) information was incorrect on the e-mail recieved thus making it difficult to locate. That coupled with the fact the location was locked when I arrived did not make it easy to access. I spent approximately a half hour searching to locate the provider and location. Only by chance and the assistance of other business persons on that area did that happen. The provider's business name was "Airworks" not "Fly the LV Sky" as provided to me.”
“I loved my pilot and his ability to share with me how to fly a helicopter. It was a wonderful journey and adventure.”
“It was an amazing once in a lifetime experience. This website is a sanctuary for adventurous people. You guys are my heaven = ] thank you!!!”
