Called about flight training, and he said he would call me back, he ghosted me and won’t return calls or messages. Zelienople has a flight instructor but he’s not interested in training either. I don’t know where I can learn to fly helicopters, there’s nothing around Pittsburgh.

Carlos was absolutely amazing. He helped me fulfill part of my bucket list. It was the most awesome thing I've done yet. Carlos made me feel so comfortable doing something out of my comfort zone . I appreciate how accommodating and personable he was. I would fly with him anytime. Thank you Carlos for the best time ever . Joann Cenerosky

The sunset tour with Vortex was a truly amazing experience! I am not exaggerating when I say that it was unforgettable-- spectacular sunset views of the city and a very fun and competent pilot & crew. We had our company holiday party in a helicopter and it was the best decision we could have made. Highly recommend, 10/10 would book again~
