    Our pilot West was very experienced and professional and gave us a comfortable ride. He had great knowledge of the area and take off and landing was exceptional. The landing on Whitehaven Beach is a must. The food platter is also a must as you relax on the beach with some snacks. Thanks Rodd and Peta

    I think the icing on the cake would have been to offer clients a video of the experience filmed by a Go-Pro as the sights of the islands and blue blue sea were amazing and my filming skills are a bit shaky. West was a brilliant pilot and kept us well informed about the islands. We even managed to see an airliner take-off from Hamilton’s short runway whilst we were in the air.
