Great pilot. Got to fly over my house and to downtown Philly. Very cool experience.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Mike! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! I'm so happy you had such a great pilot on this incredibly cool experience. A scenic helicopter tour is amazing to begin with but then having the opportunity to get an aerial view of your home must have made it that much better. Adventure with us again soon! All my best, Courtney
The pilot was excellent, the tour was wonderful, but the flight wasn’t long enough, paid for 45 min was back on ground 23-28 mins. My party loved the experience (1st time up in copter).

The first time experiencing what it's like in a helicopter is truly an amazing one and we're so glad the pilot was able to provide that for you! Thanks again for sharing your experience with us!
