Breathtaking and once in a lifetime experience - Due to unseen circumstances, my original flight time was cancelled,but after a couple of emails to and fro, Charm Aviation managed to accommodate me on the same day,just at a later time.. Great response from them when I first started communications over re-booking in with them.they went above and beyond..and as for the flight and experience itself...well, wow! it was smooth the pilot was informative and encouraged questions and chit chat throughout the flight.. The views of manhattan are just BREATHING! It was a lifetime ambition to do this and Charm Aviations made every part of the experience one I'll never forget..what an experience

What an experience.. epic ! - Was given thus as a gift from my wife and children for father's day and my birthday. An unbelievable experience. Our pilot was great, knew I was a little scared as never done this before, but he made me feel at ease. If you get the chance , do it, you will not regret it.

DO NOT sit in the middle seat. - I booked this trip for my daughters birthday but was seated in the middle of a three person bench seat with adults either side. My view was therefore limited as they spent most of the trip filming out the window on their i phones. Very disappointing for what was an expensive experience..
