Helicopter Flight Review 

5 stars

 This was one of the best experiences I ever had in my life. My instructor Amanda was very pleasant and polite. She went through all the controls of helicopter and was very patience when teaching how to fly. It was a little windy on my day of flight but we had no control over weather. Amanda great attitude and confidence in me made me want to persuade my helicopter pilot license. When I do persuade my license I would absolutely want Amanda as my instructor. I would undeniably recommend anyone to take a tour or flight lesson at cross keys airport.

 This was an amazing experience, and would highly recommend it to anyone with any interest in flying or just seeing the city from 1000 ft. I loved every second of it. My instructor, Jeannie Macklin, was very knowledgeable, nice, and overall fantastic. I had a really great time and felt at ease with her she was a really good instructor. Do yourself a favor and take a helicopter flight lesson!

 Great from A to Z and all in between! I live 2 hours away from the Jet Center and weather is a concern for chopper flights. The pilot, Jeannie Macklin, called several times throughout the week to discuss weather conditions, she was concerned and wanted to make sure I could fly the day I drove up there. Her knowledge and experience was apparent in her calm demeanor and explinations of the aircraft. I instantly felt comfortable flying with her. She is an ace in my book and I hope to fly with her again. Fox Chopper's owner operator Brian Rischmann is an amazing person to watch, a true visionary. He attracts the best of people. His people love him. If that is all I knew about him it would be enough. I plan on bringing customers to them often.
