Russ Platt made this experience one of the most memorable of our lifetime! He was very professional and knowledgeable. He took the time to explain the helicopter in advance, helping us understand what to expect. The entire flight from takeoff to landing was very smooth and the aerial views of Lake Norman were incomparable! Worth every penny - we'll be back for our next flight soon - thanks!
My daughter and I had an awesome time flying with Russ! We flew around 7p which was the perfect blend of the sunset but still light enough to see the beautiful scenery. We felt completely safe and it was nice to hear my daughter say "that was soooo cool!", thanks Russ!
Russ is great! He's been flying for 40+ years and he's currently a pilot for American Airlines. He gives a very good run down of everything you need to know about the helicopter and he encourages you to ask any many questions as possible! The ride was way smoother than I expected and the view was breathtaking! Russ is definitely a PRO and We loved it!

I went out this past weekend. Russ was great. Educated us about his baby (copter) and kept us engaged throughout the whole tour. Best Groupon ever purchased.
Russ is a great pilot and experience in his field. My wife and I enjoyed the flight and planning to do another one in the future.
