My siblings and I bought this as a gift for my father who has always had the dream of flying a helicopter. He couldn't stop raving about how awesome his experience was! He talked about it for the whole two and a half hour ride home! The instructor was patient and complimentary, the airport was quaint and pleasant, and the helicopter was clean and modern. Excellent time! Thank you!

This was a great experience overall. The people at Sky River Helicopters were great! The airport facility was very scenic. Everyone was professional, friendly, and organized. The ground familiarization and review of the helicopter was very helpful and my flight instructor, Kyle was very knowledgeable and patient. I greatly enjoyed the flight and look forward to returning for more lessons when the time permits.

The flight lession was given as a gift. It was great, the instructor was very nice and did give about ten minutes of overview for the helicopter. However, my wife did not get 30 minutes of flight time, it was more like 20 minutes. And they went over the New Jersey Turnpike and did not go anywhere near New York City. Other then having the lession cut short by ten minutes and seeing the Turnpike other than New York, it was fun.

I bought the certificate for helicopter flight lesson for my dad's birthday. He absolutly loved it! He said it was a great fun and one of the most interesting experiences in his life. They first gave him instructions about the flight and that he had an opportunity to control the helicopter by himself. He was very happy and thankful to me after.

- Chris Wynne - Pittstown, NJ, Saturday, October 09, 2010
This was a completely amazing experience! After only a small amount of tutoring on the controls and movements of a helicopter, I was flying! Evan was very professional and made me feel at ease. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to experience a helicopter ride. Putting the controls in your hand is so much more exhilarating than just riding in one. I had a ton of fun on this experience. Thanks for everything!

This was an absolutely breathtaking experience. Pilot Evan was very professional and made the ride fun by removing the doors pre-flight! I've already recommended this experience to my friends.
- Don Sandford - Pittstown, NJ, Wednesday, September 23, 2009
I had a wonderful experience! I had experience as a Navy helo aircrewman, so I can tell you that my insructor Evan is a first rate aviator and teacher. I really got a feel for handling a rotary winged aircraft in flight! The scenery is gorgeous too!

Hey just wanted to take a second to say that I really enjoyed the entire experience as did my girlfriend. Evan did a really great job of making the entire flight fun and interactive. I have been recommending this to everyone. Thanks again.

Wow! What a great experience! The instructor was very professional, understanding, and safety-minded. This package gets you in the air flying a helicopter on your first day. I'd suggest this for anyone who either wants the experience of flying a helicopter or is thinking about taking helicopter flying lessons. Either way, it's a great introductory course on helicopter flying. I had lots of fun. Thanks Xperience Days! Kudos to Marc, my instructor. I highly recommend him.
