    Great gift

    I was given this as a birhday present. It was a lot of fun, moreso when I got to take the controls. The views were stunning too.

    Misleading

    I have enjoy the flying overall. It would be best if i am able to bring my friend together. The conditions and photo in the post is misleading and i do not know i have booked a 2 seater aircraft. You can see in the post photo there is a third person in the aircraft. And also, the conditions mentioned "Passengers must notify Mainland Air Services if themselves or their friends' weights exceed 100kg". Why is 2 seater aircraft? I am confused.
