This one is a must! An experience you would not want to miss. My friends and I totally enjoyed it - even the one friend who has a fear of heights. The pilots were great. They all made us feel safe and made sure we are comfortable before, during, and after the flight. And the view from up there - just WOW! I will do it again (and again) in a heartbeat! Special mention to my pilot Simon - it sure was a pleasure flying with you! The roller-coaster ride was great. Love the video too! :-)
