Very professional and personable staff. Had a great flight and found I had a lot in common with our pilot, including having been stationed at Edwards AFB during our stints in the USAF.

Love the staff, love the crew. Flown with Heather on several occasions now. She never ceases to amaze me with all there is to take in throughout the Hudson Valley from above. Better yet have you touched a cloud yet?!?!

Took a ride with my family over the weekend out of Stormville and it was awesome. Pilot was a cool dude as well as the ground crew. Looking to hook up with them again at Rhinebeck in a few weeks.
