"What an incredible and professional company this is!! I had the pleasure of being MC at a wedding recently and I could not recommend these guys enough for not just the food, which was OUTSTANDING, but also the complete professionalism and communication they had with myself and the bridal couple. If I could give them 10 out of 5 stars I would, the food was just out of this world!!"

Chris Matthews

"The food was fresh, delicious and well prepared. At the time I reheated the food, it was just perfect and not overcooked. The meat was tender and the soup was tasty. Every one of our passengers enjoyed the food on the flight. Thank you for all your assistance, last minute requests and going the extra mile."

Skyline Aviation and The Jet Team
