I fly a microlight (flexwing trike) in the UK and wanted to give it a go where the weather was warmer. Dane was an enthusiastic guide and as I have a UK licence he let me sit up front and fly his aircraft. We followed the off shore islands North of Clearwater and saw sharks and rays below us. Great...

This was an exciting flight can't wait to go up again. Daniel is a great pilot. I am a paraplegic. and I had no problem getting in and out the Trike with Daniel help. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Everyone should try Sky surfing at least one time.

I've flown in both gliders and open-door helecoptors before and found the Sky Surfing experience to be the most exhilarating of them all. Dane provided a fantastic flight adventure that gives a unique view of Clearwater and the area beaches. Even on a windy day, the take off and landing were smooth and not the least bit frightening. I had... More

If you are in the Tampa area, this is hands down the one thing to do! On a 1 to 5 star scale rating, I give Dane a 10. You will be telling people about it for years to come. Probably be one of lifes most memorable experiences.

I had an awesome time flying with Dane. I have done other types of flights over the area, from Cessnas to helicopter, and I have to say this one was even better. Being in an open aircraft gives you a different feeling of seeing everything from 500ft up, with great views of Clearwater and the beaches and island of the... More

Wow!! Dane was super! He was knowledgeable of the area and his love of flight shines through his patience when teaching and allowing his passenger the control of the wings. My husband purchased a Groupon flight as an early Christmas gift since we were going to be in the Clearwater area seeing the dolphins at the marine aquarium. BEST BIRTHDAY... More

We had an amazing time. I was a little nervous at the thought of flying in an ultralite and not very excited about it at all. To my surprise, I had fun and loved how quiet and smooth the ride was....not scary at all. While visiting Clearwater, we also went jet skiing and parasailing, but sky surfing was the best... More
