Owners Description .The ground zooms by then steadily drops away as you enter the perfect vault of sky above . A surreal world opens where the cool blue shades of the Coral Sea are in perfect harmony with a calling wind .Fear and Apprehension give way to Excitement and Adventure as you fly up on eagle wings .For a moment in time be part of this extreme environment . Marvel at the Tropical Wonders . Of Golden Beaches , Crystal Rivers , Ancient Rainforest and Towering Mountains . Of Crocodile , Turtle , Shark , Manta , Dugong and Dolphine .Take a flight into the beautiful blue and cast free those shackles of earthly capture .Kindest Regards .Management .
