I couldn't believe I could actually learn to fly a plane in 20 minutes - but I did! It's amazing how much you can participate in the flying, and the view was spectacular!

I had a really great experience with U Fly during my vacation in New Zealand. The folks are really friendly and takes the time to explain what's going on. Great exposure to flying that I'd highly recommend.
