We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon with Lucas as our pilot. Most of our party was afraid of heights, but once we got going we had no issues at all. The views were spectacular and it was so peaceful. Lucas was awesome, both funny and informative. We ended on an Amish farm and all the little kids came out to greet... More

We took this sunset trip in early November since October was sold out but the foliage was still spectacular. Lucas and Sharon were informative for an exciting take-off during 10-15mph winds; what a ride! Lucas our pilot got us up quickly to ~1 mile altitude then lowered giving overviews of the various towns and history with the Amish. The landing... More

We were scheduled for a sunrise tour, but it was cancelled because of weather. We got an email that afternoon asking us if we wanted to do a 2pm flight, weather conditions had improved and there was an open space available. Lucas was our pilot and he was a delight!!! He was very calm, when I was freaking out a... More

This was my second time up in over two years. Last time was a sunrise take off, this time it was an evening ride. Both times I had Lucas and he is funny, informative, and makes the trip special. You can tell he loves what he does. We were lucky to have beautiful weather and scenery. Launching the mini-parachuters was... More

This was an exciting and fun time on a fall afternoon. Unfortunately the weather was cloudy and a little cool, especially at 10,000 feet, but Lucas, our pilot, made sure we had an enjoyable time. We were in the air about 75 minutes over Lancaster County and came down at an Amish farm, where the entire family came out to... More

We were initially canceled in the morning but combined with another group at 4:30pm. Was a beautiful day and was the first flight for all of our family. Our "driver" did a great job. Landing was perfect on an Amish farm. What a treat for all the kids who lived in the area. Something everyone should do. You don't have... More

Kyle was the best! His ground crew too. Everything was so smooth, they are experienced. The ride was so smooth, it was surprising. I do have to say being proposed to was MY favorite part. Hands down if you are thinking about doing this, hire these guys!!
