London high up for sky bound city dwellers

London high up for sky bound city dwellers - News

  • Britain's capital leads the way in taking to the skies with a flying experience
  • Bookings proportionally highest from London residents compared to other city dwellers
  • Among the flying experiences being booked with are helicopter sightseeing trips and flying lessons

Adventurous Londoners are the most likely city dwellers in the UK to take to the skies with an adrenaline packed flying experience.

Indeed, according to our latest booking figures here at FlyDays, residents of the English capital are now accounting for 1 in 6 of all bookings.

This is four times as many bookings as the next most popular city, Birmingham, which accounts for just 1 in 25 of bookings, and Manchester, which is the third most popular city and accounts for just 1 in 33 of bookings.

Dan Jones, operations manager at FlyDays, says: "Of course, you'd expect more actual bookings to come from London residents as there are more of them compared to any other UK city, however, the number of bookings is proportionally higher.

"This would indicate that Londoners are more likely to grasp the opportunity of a flying experience rather than city dwellers in other parts of the UK."

Helicopter Flight experiences make up the bulk of packages that let people fly over London and take in some of its world famous sights, including Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral.

Nearby airfields to book with FlyDays from which to explore London include North Weald, Grays, Chobham, Epping and Cranleigh.

However, other airfields in the South East of England also cater for extreme thrill seekers, including those learning to fly or wanting to head skywards in a Microlight, plus those wanting the ultimate adrenaline rush of an Aerobatic Flight.

Dan adds: "No matter where you live, a flying experience offers pure escapism thousands of feet above the ground."
