Another one off my bucket list! This was such a wonderful experience. I went alone for my 66th Birthday, my cousin was there to see me off celebrating her 72nd Birthday. The pilot and staff were Awesome. Step out on FAITH forget your FEARS...Celebrate Life ...THE BEST IS YET TO COME! The Champagne, treats and bonding with the group, was the Cherry on the cake...Rohr Balloons your a 10!

Shirley Gibbs June 24, 2021

This was such a great experience. My boyfriend (now husband) who is afraid of heights decided to make two big decisions all in one day. He attempted to deal with his fear of heights and propose. From his experience with setting up the process and from our experience of the surprise not being ruined. The meet up and the before time was great everyone was nice and sort of kept to their selves. We of course knew why we were there. I let it be a much of an experience as possible though. It was a nice landing and the light snack and mimosas after were a treat. Great crew who work well together and an awesome pilot.

Aubrey White June 7, 2021
