    Thanks for the review, David! Best, Kelsey
    “It was fabulous! The most amazing experience I’ve ever had. Thanks Andres for a really great life event!”
    “It was a great experience. Loved it”
    “I booked this 1 hour flight lesson for my boyfriend as a gift and it was even better than I could have hoped for. Cloud 9 was very responsive with my questions before reserving, and Michael and the Icarus Flying Academy was above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable. Michael (the owner) met us personally along with the flight instructor and was very patient teaching us (both) the basics of the aircraft. Once my boyfriend left on his flight (he was in the air for 30-40 minutes) Michael stayed with me to even help me take videos of his flight from the ground. If interested in flying, this is worth every penny.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Brielle, first of all thank you for being such an amazing gift giver! Second, thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are beyond happy to hear that your boyfriend's flight was even BETTER than your expectations! I think that's so awesome that Michael was there with you guys throughout the whole experience - he is definitely one of my favorite flight school owners. Your kind words and raving review is greatly appreciated and I will make sure to pass it along. We hope to see you guys back soon for more fun and adventures! Cheers, Kelsey
