Brits Look To Helicopter Tours As A Top Summer Escape
  • Brits are refusing to let the wet British summer stop them from enjoying themselves and enjoy the high life
  • FlyDays reveals eight out of our ten best sellers so far in 2023 are for helicopter tours and pleasure flights
  • Popping the champagne! Due to boost in bookings, we have also increased the range of packages available on its site, which start from as little as £49 and a glass of bubbly

UK thrill-seekers are refusing to let the damp squib of summer get them down, with our latest FlyDays booking data revealing that Helicopter Tours and Pleasure Flights are in demand more than ever.

Indeed, with the unsettled weather looking set to potentially disrupt plans throughout the last few weeks of the summer, adventurers searching for something to look forward to have boosted the sales of our helicopter tours and pleasure flights by 50% compared to last year.

Dan Jones, Operations Manager at says, "I don't think many people will remember 2023's summer as one of beaches and ice cream!"

"It is, however, encouraging to see the uptake in bookings for our flying experiences, which ultimately means more people have something exciting to look forward to in the future."

Making up eight out of the top ten bookings on the site so far this year, our packages range from taking off in a jet-powered helicopter to explore the countryside, to an extended tour over one of the UK's cities.

The most popular package, the Blue Skies Helicopter Flight with a Free Bubbly for Two, which includes a glass of champagne each to mark the occasion, currently makes up 13% of all our year-to-date bookings, with vouchers that can be used at any time typically within a ten-month period.

Dan concludes: "Seeing the UK from up in the air provides a unique perspective, and many of our packages are quite intimate as well, so they're a perfect way to celebrate a special moment with someone close to you."

Our Helicopter Flights departure board has also recently seen new destinations added to the list, in particular a host of packages in and around the Conwy Principal area in Wales. The packages include opportunities to explore the best of Wales' Snowdonia landscape, ranging from castles to waterfalls and mountains.
