Roy and Bryan were so wonderful in their teaching methods. The pre-flight talks and class work helped immensely. Couldn't recommend them more.

The instructor was very chill, I thought learning to fly a helicopter would be quite high stress but it was the opposite. Excellent calm instruction and a flight over a beautiful part of the world.
