Q > Can I use my phone or camera during the flight?

A > Until summer 2015, our guests were free to use cameras or phones during the flight. Unfortunately since 2015, because of safety reasons, passengers cannot hold any object during the flights.The reason for this in the past some of our guests dropped their phones and cameras in the air and this is a very big risk for people on the ground. Because of this, holding any object is now banned by the local authority .All our pilots have special safe connection cameras and all flights are videoed and photo recorded and you can buy a copy of your recordings.
