I took my first flight with Dane two days ago. It was a fantastic experience all around. The weather was gusty, but any anxiety was quickly alleviated by my pilot, Dane. He is knowledgeable, extremely congenial and the result was that I simply enjoyed the ride from beginning to end. I learned enough to pique my interest sufficiently that I... More

This was one of the most exciting hours of my life! The scenic flight was incredible, Dane was kind, knowledgeable, and encouraging. Taking control of the aircraft was one of the biggest thrills ever!! This is definitely a 'do over.'

Great experience! I should preface this by saying I love to fly and this is one of the most visceral ways of doing so. The trike is basically a motorized hang glider. It feels solid and sturdy while being open to the elements. Dane knows what he's doing and throughout the 30 min flight I always felt we were safe... More

Great trip, great views, great time. Not to be missed when in the Tampa Bay Area. It is indescribable. The beaches are better at 400 feel. Saw dolphins, manta rays, turtles. Dane does a great job of pointing out landmarks, sea life, and explaining the nuances of flying and enjoying the thermals. Taking the controls for a while give the... More

It's not cheap, but it's worth every penny. My wife and I loved it and were very glad we did it. We each did a 30 min. flight. Dane met us in the parking lot of the airpark and drove us to his hangar. My wife went first, so I waited in the hangar for about 30 min. It was... More
