  • Time flies when you're having fun… uncover its fastest growing aviation adventures of 2021
  • Helicopter adopters… a themed helicopter ride for one proved to be's fastest growing offering
  • An aeroplane flying lesson also saw a surge in bookings this year

FlyDays can reveal that Brits have been screaming 'get to the chopper!' throughout 2021, with a helicopter ride proving to be our fastest growing package this year.

Indeed, our newly released booking data has shown that sales of our 12 Mile Themed Helicopter for One has reached new heights this year, with sales of this package increasing by a whopping 380% compared to 2020.

The experience, available in nearly 50 locations across the length and breadth of the UK, gives thrill seekers the chance to go up, up and away to admire Britain's breathtaking countryside and cityscapes.

Dan Jones, operations manager at, says: "Travel restrictions have opened holidaymakers' eyes to the natural beauty and architecture Britain has to offer. And with a rise in bookings for our helicopter package, clearly Brits have taken their exploration of Britannia to new heights."

Meanwhile, our 60 Min Aeroplane Flying Lesson Two Seater For One also performed with flying colours in 2021, with sales of this package seeing increased sales year on year of over 177%.

Here, budding pilots can give their dreams of one day becoming captain of their own cockpit wings as they learn the basics of flying. The lesson is preceded by a short flight briefing with an experienced instructor who will explain all aspects of the flight including the effects of controls and how an aeroplane flies.

Dan adds: "Being a pilot has long been one of the most sought-after professions, and our booking data demonstrates how this is set to continue, with customers of not passing over the chance to head skyward with our aeroplane flying lessons."
