Website not updated regularly to I couldn't book online, but one call to a person worked well. We didn't have to rearrange the date. Easy to find venue and the facilities were excellent. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, everything was brilliant. The briefing was a very good session, and my pre-flight homework paid off too! The experience itself was awesome! I've not stopped talking about it! I'm a helicopter bore now! I got to take lots of pictures. I didn't find the website brilliant, but staff were, thank you.
Overall rating: Excellent
