Helicopter Rides and Lessons
Helicopter rides and flight experience days are the perfect gift for anyone who loves adrenaline filled experiences, loves heights, or just enjoys a great, unique day out. Exciting, visually mesmerising and hugely enjoyable, helicopter flights truly are a spectacular experience day.
Fly over the picturesque countryside or bustling city of your choice, and experience what it's like to live the high life. Helicopter experience days are usually seen as something the rich and famous do, but thanks to our superb range of helicopter flight experiences at fantastic prices, you can now feel like a celebrity for the day in a helicopter.
What is a Helicopter Ride?
We have an array of different helicopter experiences. We have helicopter pleasure flights, where you can admire the scenery or see famous places and landmarks such as the Lake District or London.
We have tours over the sight of the Dambusters training in the Peak District, over major football stadiums and grounds like Newcastle United F.C and Manchester United, and we even have a tour over the set of the popular ITV soap Emmerdale! As you can see, the possibilities of what you can enjoy seeing from an airborne helicopter are endless.
What Happens on a Helicopter Ride?
If you are just looking for a one off experience just to feel what it is like, we have short ‘Blast’ tours too, starting from as little as £39.00. Some of our helicopter flights are available for two to enjoy, and some even come with a nice glass of something bubbly to toast the flight with once you’re back at your air base.
Whichever flying experience you choose, you will get the opportunity to see the world in a way not many people get to experience. Soar above the city skyline and get a view like never before, or glide gracefully over the countryside and see the rolling hills or beautiful coastline.
These stunning modern helicopters will guide you over the location of your choice, where you can take in the breath-taking views - all highlighted by your in-flight pilot, so you don’t miss a thing - and feel the buzz of being in such a spectacular aircraft.
Can I Learn to Fly a Helicopter?
Of course! If you are looking for much more, like actually flying a helicopter, we can help you too. We offer Trial Helicopter flying lessons, all the way through to tactical piloting lessons.
These all take place under the guidance of an expert helicopter pilot instructor, who will give you a full safety briefing of what to expect, and to help you get to grips with controlling and flying it for the first time.
Best of all, the experience on many of these packages also counts towards that which you need to obtain your Helicopter Pilot’s Licence. A helicopter flying lesson could give you so much more than just a brilliant day out.
