Our host and pilot Armon was the best. Very smart and safe pilot and very accommodating to our group of 14. This was a sunrise event. Breakfast was great! Everyone must experience this at least 1 time if not more!

We were finished by 9:30am. We also had to travel a little farther that day due to fog in the original location selected. This is a great start to the day and it ends early enough to still do other activities.
