Nothing to be scared of here. Kevin is so experienced at microlighting and also at putting people at ease so they can enjoy the flight. Amazing views flying high above Port Douglas and low over the coral coast.

Early flight over Port Douglas was amazing. Take-off was seamless, Kevin was an excellent pilot, I felt quite safe at all times. Cruising over the beach area was a treat watching turtles and other sea life in their natural state. We then flew close to...More
