Time in air was shorter than paid for. Also walk in customer paid $54 to ride with us and we paid almost $300 in advance for our 2 tickets. Felt sort of jippped when the walk up paid so much less for the same ride.

This was a surprise trip by my family for my birthday. It has been on my "bucket" list for years. I was impressed with the fluidity of the whole experience. The pilot (and his son) were very patient with our questions and were very knowledgeable. They made the trip interesting
