Why fly with Pterodactyl Helicopters?
Hello Captain Mike
Thank you for your email but I'm not on social media, so I'm unable to comment there for you.
You are okay to use any comments from this email if it would help.
Yes, we all enjoyed the flights at Allora.
Our grandchildren hope you are on the Allora Show and will go another ride. This was the first flight they have ever been on.
Our eldest grandson Lincoln was very very apprehensive and was made feel at ease by, I think his name was Paul.
We all come off the flight smiling as I noticed everyone else did as well.

Lynne had a fantastic day, on her 71st Birthday, riding in a Helicopter, she has always wanted to fly in one, where I made her dream come true. The flight over Wivenhoe Dam and Lake Manchester and the surrounding countryside was awesome, and more spectacular than she could of imagined from the air, and a trip that will last a lifetime.- Mike and Lynne ThorntonLaidleyWivenhoe Dam Scenic in 2017
