What an awesome experience, very professional and very friendly and relaxed. Never though I would get to fly a stunt plane perform rolls, loops etc. Top bucket list to do.

Been to nz with my brother doing bungee, swing, skydive and whatever adrenalin activities we could get our hands on. Loved it all, but flying a little stuntplane doing loops, barrelrolls and other acrobatics was without a doubt the most intence and wildest thing we have ever experienced. Something all adrenalinjunkies should try.Thumbs up from both of us. Best regards Jonas and Emil

The most fun 20 minutes I've ever had. I wouldn't consider myself an adrenaline junky, but I've done skydiving, bungy, etc., the don't even touch this. I skimmed through the reviews to find out who didn't give this a 10 and why not. They were complaining about how expensive the DVD option is. While I agree, it too was worth it. The only other bad thing about this is that your life can only get less cool. AWESOME

I've traveled the world and done so many exciting things that it can be hard to truly amaze me. My flight in the Pitts special was so incredible. It's like race car driving in a 3 Dimensional world! Despite the extreme nature of the flight I always felt safe and secure in the aircraft. The attention to detail concerning both my safety and comfort was fantastic. I learned a lot about flying and have since offered rides to everyone in our family and will be back again soon! Thank you Allison and Vincent !

I had a quick holiday in NZ for three weeks, the whole time trying to fit in as many thrills and adventures as possible. Up against all the bungys, swings, skydives, jet boats, black water rafting and everything else I did, this was hands down the best experience in NZ, if not anywhere, ever!

It was a pleasure to meet Vincent and Allison, and immediately they made me feel welcome and at ease. Flying the plane was incredible and surprisingly easy. Getting the video is well worth it, and Allison and Vincent go the extra mile and make you an edited version with external cameras and Top Gun music as well as your full flight.

If I wasn't half way round the world, I would jump at the chance to do this again.

Thanks Guys, hope to see you again one day.
