Awesome flying time and views. Pilot was informitive and the video of us flying was awesome. Ask for the roller coaster flight.

Glad you enjoyed the trip, and yes, Larry does enjoy a little roller coaster action but only if the passengers give two big thumbs up! Enjoy the video, and hope to see you again next time on the Outer Banks. Thanks!

Very enjoyable ride, my husband and son had a blast. I would recommend this for anyone, but it was hard for my son to see out the front (very deep cockpit). I don't know if booster seats are allowed, but that could have helped.More

Glad the boys enjoyed the trip. We actually do keep a booster seat in the office for folks on the shorter side, but sometimes it can actually get them a little too high in the cockpit. Not sure why it wasn't used this time, but...More
