Q:

How strict is the weight limit? I want to buy this as a Birthday gift for my weight-lifter husband. He's 280 lbs now but is on a weight loss plan to "knock off" a few pounds. I would hope he could lose 5lbs by his Bday in OCt, but, if not can he go at 280?

A:

Unfortunately not. Exceeding the weight limit could become a safety issue.

Can I bring someone with me who can be on the helicopter with me to take the photos/video? Also, is there any photos/video you will/can provide? If yes, any charges?
