Phenomenal! Phil, our Pilot, was great--very friendly, accommodating and made the flight relaxing---this was a fist time flight for our teenage daughters. We loved the ride, the scenery was gorgeous....the weather was calm and sunny.

We went on a partially cloudy day and it was still amazing. The views where way better than i could of imagined. The pilot is extremely knowledgable and knows the name of every single mountain.

I would of put 5 stars but we had to share our experience with another couple and the woman ended up getting sick during the trip. I clutched onto my husband basically the entire time but I'd be willing to fly again.
