Our pilot, Pat, was very professional and really knew his job. It was a little windier than he would have liked so our ride was not as long as we would have liked and we did not get to go over the attractions area, which is what we had been looking forward to, but just being up there drifting along with the wind is deffinitely an experience worth taking. We went over quite a bit of marsh land & lakes and landed in the middle of a new subdivision, it was absolutely breathtaking. You have a champagne toast at the end of the ride with all the flyers & pilots & it was a great group. Then you have a nice breakfast back at the hotel that you start at, so it makes for a very entertaining experience.
