"It took two years because we have been focusing more on safety and ensuring customers get an amazing experience. Experts from Germany have trained us," he said. He described his unique idea to be not merely selling food but "experience."
Changing his idea into reality wasn't a single day job as he had to take care of the customer's safety too and as part of precautions, Nikhil told, "We don't allow pregnant women and kids below the height of 4 feet and haven't got any complaint till now."

Once seated, the safety belts buckling to the seat are checked thrice before launching into the air. Customers who alighted after their 40 min stays in the air, expressed how thrilling and exciting experience had this been.
