Description

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!

Throughly enjoyed it

My husband got me this helicopter experience for a Christmas present. I was a bit nervous about it as I'd never been in one before. It was delayed for about an hour, but it was lovey watching them take off and land whilst we waited. I got to see my home town from above, he pilot was very informative. I felt safe and really enjoyed it. I can't wait to do it again. It wasn't a long trip, so next time I will go for a longer one. Brilliant gift.

Great Day Out

My wife bought this trip for me for Christmas last year. It was a great day out and I paid an extra £10, which went to the 'Air Ambulance', to sit up front with the pilot and that was a great experience, To be recommended, although the flight could have been longer.
