Booked a microlight flight with David while we stayed in Brenton on Sea. David had made a few suggestions on which trip as I specifically wanted to photograph the Knysna Heads from above . We chose the 35 minute flight leaving from Knysna Airfield flying over the Knysna Lagoon then over the Heads turning right towards Buffelsbaai. David flew through from Wilderness where e is based & was joined by Zulu in Knysna . We were given the necessary safety briefing , kitted up & off we went at 7,30am on 23 Feb 2022. It was a perfect morning , absolutely no wind . David kept in contact with Zulu so I was able to get some nice pics of my wife's microlight fairly close up. The view over The Heads was amazing & better than I expected & I certainly got many pics of this SA landmark . We headed to Buffelsbaai & saw a lot of small hammerhead sharks & even 2 smaller great white sharks in the clear water below. Before we headed back inland we had a very low fast flight close to the beach sand . The views all round was amazing , from the sea to the mountains to the green farmlands , it was certainly worth every cent. Our pilots were in total control & even being a bit scared of heights we always felt safe. It was our 1st microlight experience & definitely worth it & can be done from Knysna or the Wilderness. Breathtaking views of this beautiful coastline of SA

THIS WAS FLYING !!!!!! What a tear-jerking experience. Words fail me. David was amazing. Non-stop commentary and personal assistance when I arrived. Getting suited up, and help for an old lady getting in and out of the microlight. This was so much appreciated. The actual flight over the beautiful Garden Route scenery was breathtaking. A never to be forgotten event in my long life. Pauline on the eve of my 79th birthday. Thank you, thank you David.
