This tour package was awesome! Bought it as a gift for a friend, and he loved it. He legitimately got to control the plane, it was amazing. The pilot who flew with us was great, too - very patient and capable. Highly recommended, it was an incredible experience!
Our trip to Florida was fantastic, but for me the flight was the icing on the cake. The exhilaration of flying yourself has no comparison, our pilot was a pro and extremely friendly to boot. It was an experience I'll never forget and the best Father's Day gift I've ever received. I'd do it again!
Just the way to make a dream come true. It's a magic feeling to fly a plane yourself. Great top-down views of theme parks and downtown are a very nice additions. It wasn't an easy task to locate Mauiva Air office though. The voucher definitely needs some instructions (ideally step-by-step) on finding it.
It was an experience of a lifetime for my daughter and nephew. We went to universal studios,island adventures park, sea world and an alligator tour. This excursion,flying the plane, is one they tell all their friends about. They definitely enjoyed it. My only wish would have been that the kids were given a certificate for flying the plane, with their names on it.Something for our scrap book/photo album. Thank you Pierce(our pilot) for providing a fun and safe flight for the kids!
Absolutely superb. The pilot was brilliant and made it an excellent experience. Would have been worth doing even if we didn't get to fly ourselves. The only criticism was that the morning we were supposed to fly it was too cloudy and they were unable to contact our UK mobile to postpone for a few hours. It may be helpful for them to ask for a local contact number in the booking process. Overall though, fantastic, we would definitely recommend it.
It was a brilliant day the trainer took me all around the plane explaining what the contolls did, once we did that we got into plane and he then explained the dials and the system that is digital.
After he did this he told me to buckle up and put headphones on so we could talk to each other, we then taxied on to run way and we were then up in the air it was smooth and brilliant he flew me around asking me to put hands on controls and to feel the plane then he told me to take controls and fly the plane which was frightening but exile rating at the same time. He explained that I needed to keep looking ahead and not at dials you only use them if visibility poor, I did a turn then went up then down then he got me to look for airfield and line my self up with the road that went upto airfield which I did then he got me to go down 1000feet ready to go for airfield (I'm thinking I cannot do anything else like land) when he says I will now take over and we will land the plane he made it look so simple we landed then taxied back to tie up. The whole experience was really great and took well over an hour from start to finish a great deal for the money
I really had a great experience and would recommend doing it to everyone that would like to fly a plane in one day.
This flight was above and beyond my expectations, Your pilot/instructor was very competent and put me at ease. I have wanted to try this for so long but was too nervous until your pilot reassured me as to his competance and ability to handle any eventuality.
I am so impressed that I have been telling all my friends about it and recommend them to contact you on their next visit to Orlando
Thank you again for a great experience
Can't wait to fly again
