Unforgettable and unique experience thanks to Rick!!

Rick really made the whole experience. He was laid back and extremely knowledgeable. It was clear that he has spent his whole life around planes and answered all our curious questions. We genuinely hope our paths cross with him again someday. The tour was so amazing that I'd not only recommend it to all of you out there, but personally want to bring people and take the tour again, just so I can show my friends how awesome it was and also get to experience it. I have confidence it'd be different every time. It certainly wasn't what I was expecting. I thought the tour would feel like it was made by a cookie cutter, but it was very personal and felt like a friend taking us out for a spin. Thanks for leading us there!! Rick - we kept your business card and will hopefully be in touch again!

All in all nice

Very difficult to find and when we were finally there there was no one in the office. We waited a mere 60 minutes for someone to show up. But then he was so nice that my anger was gone. The flight was great. Unfortunately we had strong winds at def Golden Gate and the flight was very uncomfortable. Then it was already with the stomach and then he extended the flight because we had been waiting for him for so long.

It was an exciting flight!

I really enjoyed the flight although my girlfriend was afraid with the takeoff and landing. The views over San Francisco were amazing and you get plenty of chances to take good pictures. Ric the pilot was good and was helpful the whole time. I would recommend you doing this trip!
