It was an excellent first flight for my son. He had a blast and Thunderbird Aviation is top notch. Will look to do another flight in the future.

My experience was phenomenal! I gifted it to my son for Christmas so we could create a memory and I’m so glad I did. Cannot say enough good things about our experience. We loved it.
Lots of fun!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
That's all we can hope for! Glad to hear it. Best, Jake.
The Twin Cities Scenic plane tour was a big hit. Great pilot and a beautiful day made this hour long tour very enjoyable. We have the pictures to prove it. Exactly as advertised.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Kelly! It was so thoughtful of you to take the time to review your experience! From city views to the lush greenery outlining the lakes, I bet the photos you captured look incredible! I'm so happy that you had a great pilot and this entire tour was everything you anticipated it would be. I truly hope this beautiful day made for a very special memory to hold on to. Soar with us again soon! All my best, Courtney
We should have been approached about 5 to 5. 5:20 we were. The directions to get there confusing and not precise. Ben was great. Getting into plane and seat belts were an issue
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi there Peggy,  Thank you so much for taking a moment to share your experience with us!  I am thrilled that we were able to get you confirmed for your preferred flight time of 5:00 PM. I apologize if there was any confusion regarding the directions or difficulties getting situated in the plane for your flight experience. We appreciate this feedback as we are always looking for ways to make experiences run as smoothly as possible.  That said, I love that Ben was so helpful and made sure you all had a fun flight! I hope that the brief turbulence before take off didn't impact your fantastic scenic aerial tour of the Twin Cities once you were in the air!  Best, Sophia
