I waited in the lobby and talked to the very friendly instructors that were there while he flew the first time. They were all so helpful and knowledgeable. He had so much fun, and said the... More

Our pilot was so friendly and funny, he gave us a lot of Wastonville history... More

The staff at Specialized Helicopter were very helpful in getting him in and out of the helicopter and it was comfortable for him and for... More
