If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to soar through the skies in a helicopter, then this is your chance to see an area of the country from above. There’s a reason that helicopters are the rock stars of the skies - their versatility means that they can land almost anywhere and because they can hover, they offer unparalleled views of the surrounding area which is impossible from other aircraft.
The chance to see an area from above is one which can give you a whole new perspective, whether it’s somewhere you are already familiar with or a spot that you are discovering for the first time. From beautiful landscapes to impressive towns and cities, an aerial view is one which can uncover hidden secrets, surprising features or just a completely new way to look at a place which may seem unremarkable from the ground.
You will be welcomed and briefed by a specialist team. Once you are safely strapped in the helicopter you will experience climbing to over 1,000 feet, accelerating to over 120 miles an hour, swooping over the landscape, then settling gently back on the ground. Cameras are positively encouraged, with an experience this exhilarating you will want to relive it as often as possible!

Bought this for my 91year old father. We struggled getting a date because they stopped flying at our chosen location. Eventually we were offered a date at Rochester which was not very convenient but the voucher time was running out so we accepted it. On arrival we booked in an was asked if we wanted to upgrade for an extra £5 each to get a front seat or window seat. We paid our £10 only to find it was a helicopter which could only take 4 passengers so only 1 would be unlucky enough to not get a window or front seat! We felt cheated by this. Photos were taken of us all on entering the helicopter. They were offered at £10 each ,again we were suckered in. They were poor quality with lines running through them we noticed when we got home. The flight itself went so quickly. Up, a circle and then down again. I know it was only 6 minutes but there was no swooping just a very basic ride. No information or comments from the pilot which was a shame.It could have been much more interesting. I ended up paying £79 for the experience plus £20,, total of £99 . Sadly it was not worth the money so although it was good certainly not value for money so wouldn't recommend.

I was given a helicopter ride for two and found it difficult to book and it didn’t get used - a complete waste of money.

Sounds like an amazing experience but was a waste of time and money... waited over an hour standing in a cold, bland gazebo only to be packed tightly into the helicopter for a quick whip around the airfield. Was uncomfortable, crammed, couldn’t see anything of interest, over in a few minutes. Would not recommend. Would not use again.
