The experience was great! Simple, easy booking. Quaint and small airport, fun and easy to get along with pilot team. The plane was cute and small, the view was incredible. Best experience we had on the Outer Banks!

Just long enough and pilot kept him educated in his surroundings. I recommend this to anyone. And how cool to fly over the Wright's first flight site.
