q.  what should I bring along?

A.  We suggest you bring your early morning coffee (though restrooms are not provided), sunscreen, if needed, and of course,  you will want something for your scrapbook, so you might want to bring a camera.

q.  how long is the flight?

A.  Most flights are about one (1) hour.  However they can be as short as 45 minutes or as long as one(1) hour and 30 minutes.  It just depends on weather conditions and landing sights.  Because the event includes more than just your flight, plan on three to four hours for your experience.

q.  what should I wear?

A.  Wear what ever is comfortable for the outdoor activity for that time of year.  Layered clothing and possibly a hat.  NO OPEN TOE SHOES, SANDLES, FLIP-FLOPS OR HIGH HEELS.  As far as temperature, it won't be noticeably cooler up at our flight altitudes than it is on the ground.
