I've been fortunate enough to have gone on multiple flights with this company over the years. I can't say enough good things about Jan and his team. Super professional and friendly. Yes there is a lot of competition out there, but at the end of the day you can't beat flying with this company. They are rock stars!

However, I sent an email inquiring about services, packages, pre-payment, booking, etc.. I received an auto-response stating my email was received and a reply would be forthcoming. It has been nearly a week and not a single response. Nothing. I'm hoping this company pays better attention to detail regarding their equipment than they do their emails. Luckily there are competitors... More

I did this with my partner and his sister, we're all in our early 20's but I was so surprised there were younger people taking part too. We were also told the oldest person to participate was in her 80s. Incredible experience, totally reassured that our safety was in good hands. Would definitely recommend for the whole family, great way... More
