I bought both my daughter and husband the 737 experience for Christmas. The experience was fantastic. Very professional and unrushed. They both enjoyed every minute even though my husband go so into it, it was like he was responsible for 300 lives on the plane!

Tasus and Daniel made my daughter and I feel very welcome and provided a great experience. We weren't time pressured and were even shown the very impressive Vulcan they have. Thanks guys, you really made my daughter's Christmas present something to remember.
