This package is a 1-hour flight; however, if you choose to extend on the day of your flight, let us know!
Every flight is videoed on our HD camera system for a small fee, so you can go away with a USB stick with the footage downloaded when you land. Please check out our videos to see the quality of the in-cockpit footage.
