It was really an amazing experience; another tick off my bucket list. Although weather was not that cooperative yesterday for a higher lift, it was still a wonderful and exciting experience. I would love to do this again given the chance:)

Hi. Sorry for the slow reply on this one. We don't have a minimum age restriction but generally advise that age 8 or above depending on the child is advisable. Having said that, I flew my son at age 6 and he loved it.
