    My son gave this gift to me knowing my love of helicopters, and in particular the MD500. I was thrilled to receive the gift. The flight met all of my expectations. Pilot and ground crew at Blue Sky Helicopters very friendly and helpful. A great experience!!

    Staff were friendly, polite and knowledgeable. The experience on the day was amazing. Only dissappointing thing, the speakers in the headset didn't work so we were unable to hear what the pilot was saying. Other than that, it was a great experience, one I am sure we'll do again.
