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.

How do the toilet facilities work?
Its like in a normal restaurant: you ask where they are to the waiter and you go down. Its just a bit less discrete because the whole table goes down but it takes less than a minute. During meals we will come down between each course.
How many session can you organise per day?
Depending on the activities you want to organise we think that 1 hour per session is ideal. But if it’s just a tasting or a cocktail, you can imagine half an hour sessions.
Where can we host Sky Events?
It is possible to relocate the Crane and table if required for mobile use at an event but all relocation and setup costs to be incurred by client. Events and costs around events will be negotiated on an event by event basis. We can host this anywhere from busy Entertainment Destinations, along the Magnificent South African Coastline, Game Farms overlooking a water-host, a Golf Course or Sports Arena and even a Race Track or next to a Waterfall.
