Ed gave us the warmest welcome as soon as we met. He made us feel very comfortable for our first flight and was passionate about his work (which we loved). Loved his stories, his helicopter and this experience! What an incredible trip we had. Definitely recommend this. Don’t even think about it, just book it. You won’t have any regrets – I can promise you that.
Ed was an absolute joy to fly with, he made our first flight a real special experience. We got to learn so much about the helicopter while enjoying incredible views of the city and country. We'll definitely be recommending this to all our friends!
