“It was a great experience. It started with in class education. The instructor explained about the controls and safety guidelines. It was bout half an hour. Then we went to the helicopter field by golf cart. He let us take pictures with the helicopter. We went through the checklist. In about 15 minutes we were in the air. We flew over Gilette Stadium. It was awesome. I wanna spend a few words for the instructor. It occurred to me that he was a very experienced instructor. He knows what he is doing. He flew the helicopter smoothly so we never had motion sickness or anything similar to that. He also keeps an eye on you and gauges how much stress you are having. He lets you enjoy the moment of flying and teaches at the same time. I would definitely fly with him in the future.”
“Flying in a helicopter has been a life long dream. I had a great time. My pilot was courteous and professional. Might do it again sometime.”
“We had such an amazing experience! Very professional and personable operation.”

“Our instructor/pilot (Steve) was very personable, professional and reassuring. My son, 12, who was the student-pilot, was guided in a positive and patient manner. I rode along and witnessed Steve's teaching methods and observed his positive feedback. This was a great experience for all of us! ”
