Our pilot was very competent and we had great confidence in his ability, especially since he informed us that he served in the Middle East and worked on his own plane. I was given the privilege of riding up front.

Despite a fear of heights and, therefore, a degree of pre flight nervousness this was an experience I would not have missed for the world. A sunny, clear day, magnificent scenery and a great pilot in John.

We did fly on Taquan Air. I didn’t hear, and probably would never have any reason to hear about this crash.

If they cannot fly for that pre-paid itinerary, I believe they will give you a full refund.
