Why fly with Pterodactyl Helicopters?

I just wanted to personally thank you guys for the most amazing experience for my partner and myself for his surprise flight. And also Jess was fantastic the fact that he dropped us at home and then took my 2 kids back to the base for a quick flight just topped the day. My partner has not stopped talking about it and when we landed he turned and said that It was the absolute best thing he had done in his life. We managed to capture the best footage of the helicopters arrival and the surprise on Robs face was priceless. We cant wait to receive the footage from you guys of the fight and check it out. Again from the bottom of my heart thank you.

I took my partner on a helicopter tour with Mike from Pterodactyl helicopters and we were both blown away. The tour exceeded all of our expectations and Mike was a great pilot/host. We highly recommend going on a helicopter tour with Mike!!!
