across the UK with
YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 15 minutes. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)
Nothing else comes close to touching the magic of vertical flight; from the moment you lift into the air to the second the helicopter settles gracefully back on the ground it is a truly exciting and unforgettable experience.
You will be welcomed and briefed by one of our specialist team and given the opportunity to see and hear our modern helicopter at close quarters.
Then it's your turn; climbing gracefully to over 1,000 feet and accelerating to over 120 miles an hour, you will interact with the pilot via the headset (don't forget to listen out for air traffic on the radio!), swooping over the landscape and 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!
We recommend that you wear long sleeves and trousers and should avoid wearing a hat (helicopter downwash can be quite exciting!)
The pilot can control the internal temperature of the helicopter, although it can become quite warm on sunny days.
The helicopters carry between 3 and 6 people, so there will be other passengers on board.
Flights typically take place at weekends between February and November except Scotland where we fly all year round.
Locations may be subject to change. Additional locations may be available during the year.
