First class!

I was worried about taking an 8 year old boy and 5 year old girl on this experience but Oliver the pilot was excellent. Gracie the 5 year old sat in the front and bossed Oliver around and Alex, the 8 year old took all of the photos. We had a few spins and turns which gave the experience a roller coaster feel which the kids loved and Gracie talked to Oliver the whole time, which he was very gracious about. We were high enough to see everything and the Hunter Valley looked gorgeous from up there. Given kids traditionally don't listen at all, they both listened to the pilots instruction well and loved the earphones and microphones which allowed them to talk to each other. I would recommend this as a family event to anyone and we will certainly be back as the kids want to go again!

Fantastic experience, beautiful scenery
