Absolutely wonderful. Fun. Thrilling. Must do. Wish commercial pilots could land their aircraft as smoothly as Mark! Could see the reef and beautiful environment from another magnificent perspective. Mark gave a wonderful commentary and I really enjoyed the flight. Hoping to do longer flight sometime.
