For my first tandem flight I can't think of anybody better to fly with than Sean. He exudes an air of calm, professional confidence and is very relaxing in those nervous pre-take off moments. Once in the air he's clearly at home and passes the sheer fun of flight on to you. in the 20 minute flight he spoke of... More

Had an absolutely wonderful time. First time out and it was so worth it. My husband did a few twists and turns, my flier and I kept it smooth and scenic, each to our comfortability. So professional, and genuinely kind and patient. Explained everything and made it easy to relax and enjoy the experience.

We had a really long flight...my friend must have gained 300m vertical almost heading into another valley!...I had an amazing ride over the glacier...must have been up... More

From submitting the initial email enquiry to meeting Sean on the day, it couldn't have gone any smoother. This is down to Sean's attention to detail and swift communications. My wife and 2yr old daughter came to the meeting point so we could ask a few questions about landing sites, colour of chute to look for, etc so that they... More
