“David is a great guy. He made me feel welcome and was informative with all my questions. I had a great time. Can’t wait to go again.”
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Kelly, we 100% agree with you that David is a GREAT guy! We are so happy to hear he made you feel so welcome and informed and gave you great time in a biplane! Have a wonderful week! Best, Kelsey
“This experience was first rate in every aspect. The aircraft was meticulously maintained and in excellent condition. The pilot was early, was waiting on us, was friendly, gave an excellent tour of the aircraft and overview of what we were going to do. He has over 5000 + hours in the aircraft and it surely shows. He was engaging, affable and courteous. The flight was even better than I had anticipated and was worth every penny. Even though I have had my private pilots license since age 16 and have flown Apache helicopters for the Army, I had always dreamed of a ride in an open cockpit biplane. For me, it was an experience of a life time!!! Book this experience, you will enjoy every minute of it!!!”
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Charles, thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful experience with us! Dave is indeed an amazing man and pilot and he has so so much to share, I will make sure to let him know how much you enjoyed his flight and his company. Wow, that is so awesome that you flew Apache helicopters for the Army, thank you so much for your service. It's so great to hear that the flight exceeded your expectations and that you were able to experience something you've always dreamed of! Let us know when you're ready for more amazing experiences as we would love to help you cross more off your bucket list! Cheers, Kelsey
“I did the aecrobatic ride and wow what a blast. This was such an amazing experience that I will never forget. The pilot; Dave is a wonderful guy and made the experience even better. He shared a lot of great history about the plane as well as the surrounding area. His skill in the cockpit was amazing and the entire flight was smooth from takeoff through all the stunts and to the landing.”
“This was a gift from my wife which I was very excited about experiencing. Dave Brown was an excellent pilot, and made the overall experience amazing. He walked through each aerobatic exercise before starting, and made sure I was ready before moving further. As he realized how comfortable I was with the aerobatics, he would continue to complete further loops and rolls. I can't wait until the next time, and I only wish that I would have upgraded to the one hour experience.”
“David was amazing. Me being a pilot as well, he made the experience unforgettable. I can't wait to do it again!”
“This was an amazing day! The plane was gorgeous, and the pilot (David Brown) was wonderful. He was fun and friendly, and he clearly was an experienced pilot. This ride was exciting and fun! A day to remember.”
“Absolutely fantastic!”
“I had a great time and will return. My instructor was fanatic and made my experience worth returning for a longer session, whether you just wanted a nice, smooth plane ride or the excitement of flips, turns, etc.”
“It's too bad the rating scale tops out at 10 for this one. Dave Brown would earn 11s in my book. The Cloud 9 Living interface experience was easy and straightforward... had my booking in less than a day. The flight itself with Dave was tremendous. He is a great guy, very enthusiastic about what he does, and skillfully flies an immaculately-maintained aircraft. I am a former Navy carrier-based jet pilot with over 3,000 hours in all sorts of conditions, and this flight ranks in my Top 10 under the "memorable for positive reasons" category! I'd go again in a heartbeat. ”
“Mr. Brown was a wonderful pilot. Smoothest ride I ever had in any airplane. The stunts took my breath away. Wonderful experience. Had more excitement than the time I went skydiving. ”
“Dave Brown was outstanding. He was friendly, knowledgeable, personable, and super-talented. Everyone at the airport raved about his skills/talent, and a former WWII pilot couldn't stop describing his abilities and comparing him to the very "best." My husband had a BLAST -- couldn't stop talking about it and is waiting for the next ticket, I think. We'll probably be back --it was quite a drive from home-- but so worth it. If you want a great ride, in a great plane, with a great pilot -- this is your opportunity!! THANKS!!!”
“This experience is great!! It's like being on a roller coaster 4,000 feet in the sky. My only wish is that it could've lasted longer!! (And it'd be great if David mounted a video camera in the cockpit to record the flight/passenger experience. I would've bought it.)”
“This was one of the coolest things I have ever done. It was great to fly with and talk with David. I did the full hour experience and it was awesome to get the experience of flying the plane and doing aerobatics. One caution: it's going to make you want to have a plane and that could get expensive!”
“The experience was awesome and Dave was super knowledgeable and kind and fun...he has the best job EVER!! Thanks Dave! ”
“As an aviation enthusiast, I was really looking forward to this flight. I called ahead of time and spoke with the pilot about weather conditions possibly causing the flight to be canceled and rescheduled. Sure enough, a weather cell moved in and hung over the area for a couple days causing my flight to get scrubbed. I will have to reschedule it. I will not be able to do so until next spring due to scheduling conflicts. Dave made the process and experience of booking, canceling and rebooking very positive and advised me to call back once I have my schedule set for next spring so I can get my flight”
