What airport? We service all major southern New Hampshire airports such as Concord, Manchester and Nashua.
Can I fly out of other airports? Yes, we can cover most of New England and New York State. We suggest you see if there are others and get a group together for multiple flights. All flights must takeoff and land at the same airport and remain with 25 miles of that airport per FAA regulations. There are ferry charges to move the airplane to a different location but if there are multiple flights booked at the same location we can give you a package discount. Contact us for details.
Can you take more than two people at a time? The premier package gives you and your partner over six feet in length and four feet in width and was primarily designed for two people. A third person can sit in the copilots seat but will have to remain in the copilots seat for the duration of the flight. The standard package can take up to five people at a time. There is no additional charge for extra people, you are paying for the aircraft and pilot, not a seat so the price is the same whether there are two or up to five passengers.
Can I fly day or night? Yes, the choice is yours (dependent on open schedules and weather)
What if I give you a deposit and we can’t fly due to weather? We are here to work with you. We request that you pick an alternate date at the time of your flight booking to protect you if the flight must be canceled due to weather. If we can’t fly on your alternate date due to weather we will refund your deposit or you may pick another alternate date.
Will my deposit be refunded for reasons other than weather? We will refund your deposit if you advise us more than one-week prior to your primary flight date.
Will the air be bumpy or turbulent? It is our goal to make your Fantastic Flight a pleasant one. Your pilot will assess the flight conditions prior to your flight and advise you.
