How Does a Typical Dinner Event Work?
Guests will arrive 45 minutes before “take off” where they are taken through the registration process. Guests are then taken individually to their seats where they are fastened in their seats by a three point safety belt. Once all the safety checks are complete starters are served and we “take off” for our first session in the sky, this lasts approximately half an hour and the table is then brought back to ground where guests are welcome to take a comfort break. The main course and dessert is then loaded and we once again take off where guests will enjoy a further hour in the sky enjoying their main meal and mouth watering dessert.
