They are an incredibly professional, patient and highly skilled team, who are very good at calming last-minute nerves - as well as making the whole thing really fun. The valley is so beautiful, the views are incredible, and it is amazingly peaceful as you fly above it all!

Flying with them is genuinely the highlight of my life, absolutely incredible, and I`d love to return and do it again in the future."
