Memorable engagement

Absolutely five star service from the moment we walked through the door. I had planned to propose at the top and gave them a heads up. The pilot was very attentive and gave us plenty of time, then took a bunch of amazing photos for us. The view and feeling from being on top of Cecil Peak is incredible. If you're on the fence about whether or not you should do it, pull the trigger because you won't regret it! Couldn't fault the experience, it was magic. Thank you for the amazing beginning to our next chapter!

Fantastic trip, would highly reccomend!!!

Purchased a 20 minute flight with alpine landing as a birthday present for my partner! We had the best time ever and were absolutely blown away by the views. I was actually quite nervous but I felt extremely safe in over the tops hands. If your considering this as an activity, just do it… you won’t regret it.
