Why fly with Pterodactyl Helicopters?

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. Thank you Capt. Mike you were awesome, and would like to travel with you again, and a thank you to you and Johey for being perfect hosts on the day.

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!!!
