Almost worth it

This product appears to be aimong as an introduction to flying a small aircraft. Or just a recreational flight. The flight time is okay but it lacked proper greeting and sending away. There was a 'meeting' in the office so we couldn't even get it. Waited outside the hangar. Could've had a symbolic 'certificate of first flight or something'. Not quite what I was expecting.

Oh dear, I am sorry you did not enjoy your experience and it is not what you were expecting. Unfortunately, if the door was locked, you must have arrived when the pilot was away flying. ...we operate with minimal staff during the weekends. He normally leaves a note on the door to say that, and that he would be back soon. Again, I am sorry it did not meet your expectations.

Bucket list ticked

The whole experience, from arriving at Mainland Air, interactions with the pilot and the hands on control of the plane were excellent. I would do it again without hesitation. Bravo!
