    This flight was part of our 38th wedding anniversary long weekend adventures. The staff and pilot were Wonderful! Very informative, friendly and knowledgeable. the 1 hour flight was amazing. the shoreline was stunning and Tommy even circled around so we could get a better view of a pod of whales. I would Highly Recommend anyone interested to give Aerodynamic Aviation-Monterey a try, you won't regret it. FIVE STAR
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Dan, thank you so much for the outstanding review! I'm so glad we were able to get you guys booked for that and am thrilled to hear it went absolutely amazing. I especially love that Tommy circled back around to get a closer look at the pod of whales, that must have been so breathtaking and was probably the cherry on top for an unforgettable 38th wedding anniversary! I will be sure to pass along all of your kind words to our flight school for you and we hope to see you back again for more adventures but until then, have an incredible 2019! Cheers, Kelsey
    1 Hour tour flight: Awesome experience and Wonderful People
    The actual flight and guide (Artem) were great. The only bump in the whole process happened the day of the tour. We were about an hour from the airport when we got a call from the airport recommending we reschedule because of cloud cover. Luckily, the rep called us back and informed my wife and I we could still do the aerial tour. I understand weather can be unpredictable but we were coming 2 hours from San Francisco and getting a cancellation call an hour before just doesn't work (even the day before or the morning of the tour is more understandable). Despite this issue, I enjoyed what Artem was teaching me and I could see myself taking flight lessons through Cloud 9 Living's experience providers in the future (time permitting).
