I gave the sky surfing trip to by husband as a birthday gift. He had a blast and by the expression on his face after landing, I could tell that he REALLY enjoyed it. Dane was great and helped to make it an exciting, yet comfortable and secure experience. We would definitely recommend flying with Dane and his sky surfer!

I gave a half hour ride to my husband as a Christmas present to be used during our February visit to Florida. He is a private pilot who routinely flies a single engine airplane and initially wasn't too excited about this sort of ride. However he really enjoyed his flight. Dane was great to work with and very responsive to... More

Got this for a friend and he had an awesome ride. The expression on his face said it all. Dane is a cool guy. We will be back for another great adventure in the sky.

My family and I had the opportunity to fly with Dane recently. We all had a wonderful experience. It was amazing to see Clearwater Beach from above. The airport was only a short drive from where we were staying at the beach. Once we got there Dane went over some instructions with us and we were flying in no time.... More

I've spent the last 30 years dreaming of learning to fly. Last week my wife bought me an introductory hour flying with Dane. I now know what I hope to do in my retirement....Some people golf....I'm going to be flying! Dane was very thorough expaining the process for the day and when I found out I could fly myself after...

WOW! This was so much fun! Gary went first and he flew the sport plane almost all of the time. He was up for 60 mins and I got a ride for 30 mins. Dane is just awesome. He did a great job of introducing us to the plane and how it worked. I was surprised to see how fast... More

We saw an ad in a local publication at our Clearwater Beach hotel. My wife, Wendy, joked about doing taking a ride, knowing I love planes, helicopters, and high places. Just for a hoot, I called and inquired about the price. When I found out what it cost for a half hour, I was amazed at how reasonable it was.... More

This was a birthday gift from my Dad who went a few months ago. Dane was absolutely awesome, very friendly, explained the ultralight and how everything worked before we took off, and gave me a fair warning that the takeoff can be quite extreme!! It was one of the most unique rushes I've ever experienced and I can't wait to... More

This is a must do activity if you are in the Tampa Bay area, especially for aviation enthusiasts or even if you'd like a unique way to view the scenic beauty of keys on the Clearwater coastline. The ultralight glider trike is like a flying motorcycle and is very safe and easy to handle. Dane, the pilot, is a great... More
