The highlight of my reunion experience. I had been in communications with johnny over WhatsApp for a month proceeding my trip to reunion as a gyrocopter ride was on my bucket list. Unfortunately the day that my trip was scheduled for weather did not permit the trip. Johnny managed to reschedule it to later during my trip. Johnny tailored the gyrocopter ride to meet my budget and included the 3 cirques at a discount. The gyrocopter ride was beyond exhillirating. Best aerial adventure I have done. You feel like top gun with sunglasses and earphones. The adventure is slow enough to take awesome pics but exciting that you close to mountain edges. It just got better as adventure proceeded. You could see cilaos, flew through salazie and saw trou de ver waterfalls which was glorious from the air. Mafate from the air was just fantastic. It is the cold from the air and would be advisable to wear a Jersey and jacket. This was just terrific and 5 star experience.

Personal service and care with the happiest and coolest ULM's and even a Gyrocopter. Johnny is the sweetest guy and I had the most amazing flight over the entire island. Don't hesitate, just go for it. You won't regret flying Zen!

We booked online through the Zen website and received swift and helpful replies from Johnny Vaulbert, the owner, in English. I hold a pilot's licence and always try to do some aerial sightseeing when I'm on holiday in a place I have not visited before. First of all the aircraft are clean & well maintained, kept secure in the company's own hangar. These are modern very light aircraft that carry one pilot & one passenger and have extremely good performance. They are also very safe especially as they are fitted with a full aircraft parachute system - safety is always the prime factor in flying. My wife flew in one aircraft and I the other, following each other over the Circes, Rampart and the Volcano crater. The views from 9000feet were incredible and unlike any flying have done in the UK, Scandinavia or Canada. My pilot, Pierre (who is also a flying instructor) speaks excellent English and gave me an interesting and knowledgeable commentary throughout the flight. My wife, who is a nervous flyer, said she felt reassured by Johnny's calm, professional manner and, although it had been agreed that they would turn back if she felt uncomfortable in any way, she enjoyed every minute and did not notice how quickly the time passed. The island of Reunion seen from above is a wonderful sight and Zen Altitude are a friendly, professional team of fliers that I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone. Just make sure you camera battery is fully charged!

The booking was made through Connections, and I got an sms from the pilot very early in the morning to confirm that the weather was good and my flight had been confirmed. I spent almost two hours in the gyrocopter and was so glad I had not chosen a helicopter instead. Pilot Johnny understands how to build suspense, and how to show off this beautiful island. We were blessed to have only a few clouds coming over as we flew along the lagoon - for the rest, the skies were clear and views spectacular.

Wonderful experience to see the island from high above. We were very lucky that the volcano was active. We'll never forget this! Really recommended.
