I went up with Dan Adler for an hour, and it was one of the best hours of my life!!! He was so easygoing, and supportive, and made it his goal to make sure I was completely comfortable the entire time!! I genuinely could not have asked for a better experience (especially since it was my first time!) He deserves 200 stars!! Would definitely fly with him again!!
