The Dambusters Run plus Cream Tea at Buxton

£99.00 inc VAT

Helicopter pleasure flight
The Dambusters Run plus Cream Tea
The flight will take you through the Peak District covering Chatsworth House, the Mam Tor rock formations and Lady Bower reservoir/Derwent Valley where the RAF trained for the famous Dambusters raid

This experience will last a total of approx. 60 minutes, with approx. 18 minutes spent in the air. (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.)


For later dates, schedules will not yet be available and so you should have a wide selection of dates to choose from when you come to book.

What's included

On the night of 16 May 1943 nineteen Lancasters from the specially formed 617 Squadron took off from RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire on a daring raid that was to take them deep into Germany. On the bombing run an exact height of 60 feet had to be held. To facilitate this two spotlights were fitted below the Lancaster so that the spots of light would coincide on the surface of the water when flying at precisely 60 feet.

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!


Special Conditions

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.
