    Es war ein fantastisches Event! Der etwas weitere Weg raus zum Westchester County Airport lohnt sich! Der Flug war eine Überraschung für unseren 15-jährigen Sohn, dessen Leidenschaft Helikopter und Fliegerei ist und der in Absprache mit dem Wings-Air-Team erst kurz vor Abflug erfahren, dass er selbst steuern darf. Christine hat das toll für uns arrangiert! Sabina vom Ground Support war ebenfalls großartig! Nach dem Flug bekam unser Sohn sogar ein offizielles Logbuch von ihr geschenkt, in das Mario, unser Pilot, die Flugstunde dann eingetragen hat. Ein ganz besonderer Dank geht natürlich auch an Mario, der den Flug mit Erklärungen und Tipps zu 60 unvergesslichen Minuten werden lassen hat! Wir können Wings Air Helicopters uneingeschränkt empfehlen! See you again when we come back to NY! Christine, Sabina and Mario – you are awesome! Thank you so much!
