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!
This experience is available on selected dates, March to October.

Adventure 001 – Dullingham, Polofields
Verity from National Accounts, May 2019
When we arrived we were greeted by the friendly Adventure001 staff, where they took our voucher and booked us in for our flight. We were offered to upgrade our flight to a “Thrill Seeker” for £10pp, I wasn’t so sure but my partner managed to persuade me to do it and oh my god I’m so glad I did, it was amazing. Once registered you have a short safety briefing and then wait for your flight number to be called, we had a short wait before our flight as they had a delay first thing due to bad weather but by the time my flight number was called the sun was shining and the skies were blue, it was definitely worth the wait. Before we got into the helicopter, a member of staff took our picture and also took another when sat in the helicopter. You are given the opportunity to purchase these at the end of the flight. The pilot took off and we were in the air within seconds, as we had the thrill seeker ride, the pilot was doing lots of spins, turns and flying on the side – this was amazing. I did have to close my eyes a few times as my stomach was in my mouth when doing sharp turns. We slowly came back down to land where we were then shown our photos, this is also when you would have your bubbly if included within your voucher.
What I thought was also great is that all funds raised through upgrades and buying your photos goes to the air ambulance and not in the suppliers pocket! If you have always wanted to have a ride in a helicopter then I highly recommend this product.
If you are a bit of an adrenaline junkie then you HAVE to upgrade to the thrill seeker - fantastic!
Make sure you take a camera – the views are amazing!
