 "I have had an interest in aviation since a child and taken a couple of plane lessons before. I just could not believe how different the helicopter was. It's a real art trying to fly them but the view out the window is so much better, you really have to experience this"  


Jason McDaid  - Strabane

 "I dropped enough hints with the girlfriend to finally get bought a lesson. She treated me to the longest lesson which was great as not only did I get to fly over the City but it gave me time to really feel in control of the helicopter. My instructor showed me so many things that it could do I was really impressed. Now the girlfriend wants to go on a sightseeing tour next"  


Lindsay Martin  - Draperstown

 "I have my PPL aeroplane and always wondered what it was like flying a helicopter compared to a plane. There are a lot of  similarities in the cockpit but the ability to hover at 1000ft just blew my mind. Thanks again for an amazing day"


Jennifer Kelly  – Toome

"The flight was so much fun, the time just went so fast and I got some amazing pictures of my parents' house to top it all off. I was a little worried about the controls but after a few minutes I had got the hang of it and was able to fly the helicopter where I wanted to go. I would highly recommend this to anybody"
