What's included

This is a 30 minute flight which takes in some of the most famous places of the county of Greater Manchester, heart of the industrial revolution. From Barton you will fly to Rochdale, the manor of which was once owned by Lord Byron. It was one of the most productive cotton spinning towns in the world, and is famous for Gracie Fields and Bill Oddie among others. It has a town hall so admired by Hitler he wanted to ship it back to Germany if he invaded! We follow the canal to Todmorden on the southern edge of the dramatic Pennines, Bronte country, and home to two Nobel Prize winners. Then it's on to Bacup, once home to Beatrix Potter, and the best preserved cotton town in England and a conservation area which until 2006 had the shortest street in the world at 17ft. You will then head back over the wind farm and Bury towards the familiar skyline of Manchester before landing back at the airport.

Re-routed but still enjoyable

(Reviewed by Sylvia Rigg 28/11/2014)

No problem to arrange. Date needed to be changed as the pilot was sick. New date arranging at time of notifying of above.Easy to get to venue. Staff helpful and informative. I enjoyed the helicopter flight - and it lived up to expectations . Unfortunately the flight was not as advertised over the Pennines and Todmorton (which would have passed over my own area) the flight was over Lancashire and Bolton rebok - football stadium. I took photos of Bolton footbal satdium which I will email to you. I would love to fly again as it was a great experience . The flight was bought for me for my 70th birthday by the family. My daughter booked on line, the dealings she had with you were good - thank you!
