The helicopter experience was a complete surprise for my girlfriend. Suffice it to say, knocked it out of the park. The city lights at night from a helicopter! How cool is that? As a retired military helicopter pilot I was completely impressed with the company. Real professionals and part of the great experience. The aircraft itself was totally plush, a very comfortable, smooth and quiet ride! Well, compared to Army helicopters. Seriously would do this again. Highly recommend.

Flight was cool but was not told that you were going to jam 6 people in a helicopter that can fit 4 comfortably... To my knowledge I thought I was booking a helicopter ride for my fiancé and I only! We Went from thinking it was going to be romantic ride with just the two of us to you guys jamming 6 of us in there like sardines! I was very specific about getting to see the sunset but we didn’t get off the ground till 5:30pm which was to late... So like I said the flight was cool but overall experience was misleading and disappointing!
icon Response from Host , Nov 2020
Hi Christopher, We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed with parts of the experience. We booked your flight as close to sunset as we had available on the day so it was after the sun had gone down but there would still be some colors in the sky at the beginning of your flight. Our tours are currently flown with 6 passengers, we send as a message to all customers in advance to make sure they know what to expect. I'm so sorry that you didn't receive this message prior to your experience. I'm glad you still enjoyed the actual flight and we will work on improving our communication to ensure all our passengers know what to expect before arriving.

Headphone’s microphone didn’t work properly. Also space is too small inside of Helicopter as COVID 19 point of view.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2020
Thanks for sharing how amazing the view was! As part of our Covid-19 health and safety protocols the microphones are currently not working in the helicopters and we are requiring passengers to wear masks to try and keep everyone safe in the cabin. Between each flight we sanitize the interior of the aircraft thoroughly as well to ensure everyone can safely fly with us!
