"Had an Incredible experience flying with Anees over to the Three Sisters and back. He was friendly and a great teacher/companion for the flight. Eager to come back for lessons as soon as possible."


"Good Experience and the instructor was great explaining everything regarding the course as well!"


"An unforgettable wonderful experience. My instructor is a great pilot who is friendly and patient. We flew over prospect reservior, warragamba dam, katoomba and Blackheath. It's hard to describe the beauty of the scenery along the way. It's best to experience it yourself"


"From the time I booked up to the completion of the flight, customer service was first class. They answered my questions in a totally professional manner. Yesterday I met my training pilot Carlos. Broad smile, spoke in an understanding and professional manner. Carlos explained everything, made sure I was comfortable assisted me with my Go Pro."
