About the experience

This is one helicopter sightseeing tour to which you’ll be saying “Eee by gum!” as you take off and up into the sky over God’s own country - North Yorkshire! This 30 minute aerial tour takes flight from Elvington Airfield, a former RAF air base for Halifax bombers that played a key role during the Battle of the Ruhr. It’s situated just outside York itself, and it’s towards this historic cathedral city that you’ll be heading off to to take in its many stunning landmarks from a birds eye view, including the Minster, York Cathedral, Clifford’s Tower, The Shambles, The Transport Museum and the National Railway Museum. If you live by the mantra around these parts that “If it's not in Yorkshire, it's not worth visiting”, then this Yorkshire helicopter tour will affirm that!
