Booking process was simple. We arrived early and the the ground crew were friendly, helpful and actually was able to move our flight time up a bit. I wish I wrote the pilot's name down, but he definitely made the experience! Very professional and skilled, he took the time to explain the trip and what to expect. Our daughter flew up front and he took extra care to tell her when he was going to bank the helicopter and made sure she was safe. An outstanding experience and would definitely do this again through this company!
