 "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"

"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"
