“I had never done anything like flying a helicopter before, and I had an amazing time. The pilot was very nice and patient, and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience.”
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hey Maryann we're so glad your first time flying a helicopter was so amazing! It's also so great to hear you enjoyed your pilot and that our flight school was able to make your experience so memorable. We hope to see you back again soon!
“Lee was my pilot and he could not have been any better. His attention to detail, his patience and clear direction were outstanding. The experience was thrilling more because of my focus on the control panel and not out of worry.”
“You all are simply the best of the best. Extraordinary in every way. Thanks for everything.”
“Great experience!”
“Marshal was a great instructor. He was very knowledgeable about the aircraft. He gave me a pre-flight briefing with just the right amount of detail. He told me what to expect and how the aircraft would react. He let me "fly" right away. He was very calm, in total control, and flew with the utmost confidence. The helicopter we flew in appeared to be either brand new or very near-new. ”
“Awesome time!! We did the "learn to fly helicopters" experience plus one passenger in NJ and would recommend it to anyone. At no time did we feel unsafe and the instructor, John, was very friendly and an excellent pilot. The time does go by fast but worth it!! ”
“Only 1 word, awesome!!!!!!”
“I'm am so thrilled I found this website. I'm looking foward to using it again. It was a experience both my boyfriend and I will never forget. I recommend it to everyone to try. The staff was extremely cool from booking the ride to the pilot. You guys are great. Thank you very much! ”
“My pilot Eric was great. He was very knowledgable of the helicopter's history and design. During the preflight check he pointed out various operating mechanics of the helicopter which I found very interesting. During pre-flight I asked about autorotation. He described how it works mechanically then suggested that we could try an auto-rotated descent if I wanted. Of course I did and on our last approach he demonstrated it. It was really cool to feel the controlled descent of autorotation. In the rest of the flight I did well handling the controls and he let me fly nearly the entire time. Awesome experience!”
“The time was too short and I will definitely do it again Thanks for the opportunity and the professionalism ”
“Great time”
“Fantastic experience. Mike, my pilot/instructor was frendly, helpful and made me feel more like a co-pilot than a student. If you ever have wanted to fly a helicopter, this is for you. I plan to do this experience again. ”
“Wonderful experience! Kyle Pope was excellent. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed. He's very educated and loves what he does!”
“Excellent pilot, friendly and knowledgeable. I have recommended this experience to friends and family already and I'll be going again next year I am sure. Awesome!”
