About the experience

Located southeast of York's city centre is Elvington Airfield, which has a rich history. During World War II, the Royal Air Force operated Halifax heavy bombers from this airfield, playing a vital role in the Battle of the Ruhr. After the war, two French squadrons were stationed at the base, and later, the Americans took over the airfield. Taking a sightseeing tour of North Yorkshire by helicopter is an enthralling experience due to the area's rich history. You will have the opportunity to fly over Elvington, which has played a significant role in the military in the past, and the remnants of which can be best seen from the air. Additionally, you can enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the rolling Yorkshire countryside beyond the airfield. If you opt for the 10 or 15-minute helicopter ride, the tour will cover the Elvington area. However, if you wish to see more of North Yorkshire's iconic sites, consider the 30-minute tours. These tours will take you as far as York, where you will witness breathtaking views of some of the most famous landmarks, such as the Minster, Clifford's Tower, the Shambles, and the Transport Museum. North Yorkshire houses the Yorkshire Air Museum, making it an ideal destination for aviation enthusiasts. The helicopter rides offer a fantastic opportunity to experience North Yorkshire's stunning views as a passenger in a helicopter. It's a perfect day out for anyone interested in aviation.
