Fabulous experience. It was cancelled the first time we turned up due to issues with wind levels/motor temp which was slightly frustrating as it was a bit of a trip for us from where we were staying, taxi costs etc. When we turned up the 2nd time all went smoothly and without issue. Brilliant experience seeing the sights over the cliffs and beach. Thank you

Very good value for price! Don't expect a red carpet while you wait for your turn to fly very basic pre-flight experience but who cares! The flight was AMAZING a little delay allowed us to fly during sunset which was the best we could hope for! Our instructor did everything for us to get a great 1st flight experience! Very smooth take-off and landing, flying up high for us to get the best out of this beautiful sunset, loved it! Highly recommend!

We would recommend this experience to anyone. The view while flying is spectacular and the provider is not only knowledgeable but personally very friendly and funny. Our flight was delayed due to the couple in front of us being late, but every effort was made to make our flights great - it worked! We had booked with a camera and unfortunately the battery was empty. Of course that sounds a shame at first, but we were even offered to come back and fly the next day to get a video, otherwise we would get our money back, of course. Therefore perfectly solved and a truly unique experience!
