We bought this experience for our son for his birthday and he absolutely loved it!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Karen, What a lovely gift for your son! I am so happy to hear that he enjoyed his birthday flight and I hope we can help give you more exciting gift giving experiences to come! Regards, Briana
I was concerned that they would not honor the flight since my wife bought it as a gift for me several years ago and I never used it. They honored it (after a small charge to pay for pay increase over the years) and boy am I happy I did this. It was a fantastic experience and I would recommend this to anyone. The flight was fun, the pilot was fabulous and you will be surprised how smooth and calm the flight actually is. If you are on the fence, all I could say is that this is a memorable life experience that you should add to and knock off your bucket list.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Ken, Thank you for taking the time to share this wonderful review with us! I am so glad you were still able to use this great gift from you wife, and that the flight was more than you expected! You could say it was well worth the wait! I am pleased to hear that our partner provided such a seamless flight and brought so many amazing elements to the sky! We could not agree more that this is truly a once in a lifetime experience and always one to check off the list! We can't wait to get you up in the sky again soon! Best, Brooke
My pilot David Brown was wonderful and we had a perfect evening for this flight. I can't say enough about how nice David is and how at ease he made me feel during this exciting trip! Highly recommend this to anyone.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Kit, Thank you so much for your wonderful review and recommendation! I am thrilled to hear that you had such an amazing pilot with you along the way that was kind and made you feel safe. I hope we can help give you more exciting trips in the future! Regards, Briana
Dave was an awesome pilot. Very knowledgeable about the aircraft. Made me feel at complete ease throughout the entire tome(before, during and after)! My only regret is I didn’t let him take me through a barrel roll(I chickened out)! But now I have an excuse to book my next flight with him! Thanks for quite the memorable experience Dave and team!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Ben, It is wonderful to hear how memorable of a time you had. Trying something new is of course exciting but can always create nerves, and its great that out pilots were able to settle all of them! We hope you get out on another adventure soon and get to give that barrel roll a try!  Best, Johnika Virgin Experience Gifts
It was awesome. David was the guy who was knowledgeable and kind. He went though every step from the start. Thank you much.
