North Weald Airfield (Epping, Essex)
Lucy from Finance, May 2016
If you've always wanted to ride in a helicopter or need a gift for someone who does I would highly recommend this experience. Once I arrived at North Weald airfield, I registered with a member of the team and had a short safety briefing before taking a seat in the pub and waiting for my number to be called. Then I was called and given another short but informative brief which put my mind at ease as I was slightly nervous having never been in a helicopter before. Then the pilot asked our group who would like the front seat. As there were only four of us the front seat was free - wahoo! The views were spectactular and it was amazing to see London's famous landmarks from a bird's eye view.
Bring your camera but don't forget to also enjoy the views in the moment too!
