Delighted Passenger Comments 2015:
I really enjoyed my flight. It was a unique experience and I'd definitely do it again!
I'm sure there are those who hesitate to fly for one reason or another. I'd like to reassure them on a few points:
You don't want to go alone: Well, once you step into that basket, you're not alone! There's your pilot and the other passengers. People get very chummy, sharing an experience like this.
Cost: Arguably, it's a pricey way to spend half an hour. But it's never going to get cheaper. If you've always wanted to fly, then find yourself a good pilot (like Ron), plunk down your money and just do it!
Motion sickness: I don't know if the experience is the same for everybody, but I didn't have the physical sensations I expected. My stomach did not lurch as we lifted off. I never felt like we were moving in a particular direction, or that I was traveling backwards (I hate sitting backwards on a train!). And I hardly even felt the landing. There was nothing to detract from the enjoyment of watching the scenery around and below. I felt as if I were standing on a balcony and everything else was shifting around me.
The experience was peaceful and natural, and I only wish it was longer! Thanks again, and I'll see you again!
Best regards,
