If you are on the fence about booking this once in a lifetime experience, just DO IT! My boyfriend & I were celebrating our anniversary and the sunset views were unbeatable. Mo was fantastic from the moment he met us then drove us to his plane, to being up in the air, & to when we landed smoothly onto the ground. Thanks again Mo!

If you're thinking about it, do it. The plane holds four passengers, but I showed up alone. I was thinking that more people would come to fill the plane, but because I went on a Wednesday afternoon, I was alone. I had a fully private tour of the Chicago skyline—something you won't find anywhere else. As a solo traveler, Mo was very helpful and accommodating to me. I had my luggage with me, that he safely stored as we flew around. Because I was alone, I was a little more nervous than expected, but with her qualifications, demeanor, and overall spirit, he made me feel super comfortable throughout the entire flight. I flew in late March and thankfully had somewhat clear skies. While the ride was a little shaky, I'd say it was smooth considering the circumstances. The views were absolutely spectacular. Plus, you got to feel like you were part of the flying experience hearing the calls and orders to the airport. If you are alone or with a small group, book this experience. You won't regret it.

This was an awesome experience that was gifted to me. I wouldn't have and never seen Chicago or it's surrounding areas up so close. The weather was picture perfect. The pilot was very informative and professional! My husband really enjoyed himself!
