Checking In for Your Flight
Please contact us by email or phone the day prior to your flight. This is necessary to check the weather conditions are favorable and your attendance. Failure to check in may result in being moved to stand-by and or being billed as a no show. Please remember to check in!
Booking and Cancellation Policies
Customers have 48 hours prior to the day of the scheduled flight to cancel or reschedule. Flights canceled less than 48 hours prior to the day of the scheduled flight will be billed in full and given the opportunity to reschedule or receive flight certificates for use up to 12 months later. Should Sky Drifters cancel the flight due to weather prior to the flight date or on-site, the customer has the option to reschedule or too receive a full refund of their deposit or total amount paid or billed to the credit card on file.
Customers who are “No Shows at flight time” and or did not cancel or reschedule 72 hours prior to the flight will be billed for the full amount of the flight booked. All flights leave with-in 20 minutes of the scheduled meeting time. Please be on time!
Due to winds and the concern we have for our passengers we may occasionally shorten a flight or even cancel a flight the morning of. We ask that you be understanding of losing a few minutes of flight time or having to come back on another day. We do not like to cancel but will not risk having an unsafe flight to avoid disappointing you. Better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than to be in the air wishing you were on the ground!
