Superb experience. Pilot was very informative and mostly correct in his descriptions. I would highly recommend this experience to others. I look forward to a flight from the same location perhaps over a slightly different route again in the near future. All on board were highly satisfied and it was a very successful day all round. See you again soon.
A fantastic 80th birthday present! I had to wait 12 months to get the right weather but it was well worth the wait. Sitting next to the pilot (a very handsome and charming young man) it was like flying over the snowdonia range in a bubble and I cannot wait to go again -friends and family please take note.
Wonderful experience - the route could possibly be refined to take in more of the features visible from the air (eg. narrow-gauge railways, Port Meirion, Electric Mountain, Gelert's Grave. Some form of route-map for the passenger showing terrain would be a great help - to highlight points deserving attention and showing pathway in relation to eg. Menai Straits. I know Snowdonia very well but from the air it must be daunting to the visitor and this would greatly improve their experience by showing them what a vast terrain was being covered and where features were situated.
