Description

Explore London’s famous skyline from high-above with this incredible London Pleasure Flight for Two experience.

A pleasure flight in a small airplane over London is the ultimate way to see the UK’s capital and take in the stunning sights of one of the world’s greatest cities.

Your adventure will begin at Stapleford Flight Centre which is based in the Essex countryside very near the villages of Abridge and Lambourne End. Despite its rural setting, it is situated inside the M25 London boundary and is very well served by many major roads.

After a short pre-flight safety briefing, it’s time to board your 4-seater twin-engine aircraft and take to the skies. Joining the Thames at Dartford you’ll follow the river west as it snakes through the middle of the city. Your pilot will point out some of London’s most historical landmarks as you gaze down upon Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, Houses of Parliament, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Buckingham palace, as well as more modern sights such as The Shard, The Gherkin, Millennium Dome and Canary Wharf.

This is the finest way to see London in all its wonderful glory, so make sure you have your camera at the ready as you’ll want to capture some great photos to remember this amazing aerial adventure.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am sorry to read of the misperception regarding your London Pleasure Flight experience. Having looked into this, my colleague you spoke to prior to your experience did not confirm that this was a helicopter flight. I have spoke to the retailer and the images provided for this experience have not advertised a helicopter. The flight was described as on board a 4-seater twin engined aircraft. If you would like us to investigate the conversations you had with our agents further, please contact our customer service department and we will be happy to look into this for you.

Not a helicopter ride!

When this was bought it was advertised with a picture of a helicopter - saying London pleasure flight. So, I understandingly thought it was a helicopter ride over London - it's not. It's in a small plane. I only found out on the day when we turned up at the airfield. I wasn't the only one who had been missold to, as the other participant thought it was a helicopter too. Plus the pilot said activity superstore do this a lot. The plane ride was good to be fair - just wasn't what I expected

When did your experience take place? November

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you felt this experience was misadvertised. Our terms and conditions do advertise that we have tried hard to ensure descriptions, illustrations and experience titles used in all our literature and on our website are accurate. However, photographs and experience titles are intended to give a general idea of the experience described, and do not form part of any contract between you and Activity Superstore. Furthermore, we do advertise that this experience will be on board a 4-seater twin engined aircraft, so I do apologise if you did not see this information. I am pleased that you enjoyed the flight on the day and we do offer a range of helicopter experiences on our website if you are interested in partaking in one.
