Fly a helicopter from an historic Sussex airfield

[caption id="attachment_355" align="alignright" width="250"] Imagine flying in a helicopter over this beautiful Grade II listed terminal building![/caption] We're rather pleased about signing up this new helicopter centre based at Shoreham Airport, as it's an airfield steeped in history and offering incredible views of the adjacent coastline, Lancing College and the South Downs. As if the excitement of actually going up in a helicopter (and flying the thing!) wasn't enough to get you all excited, the airfield is always busy, has excellent facilities and a range of helicopter lessons that will entertain the whole family. For those even vaguely interested in...

Another young motor sport ace called Lewis?

[caption id="attachment_346" align="alignleft" width="250"] Young Lewis Redwood at the wheel of the Peugeot 106 Rallye[/caption] The other day we opened an email that made us feel all warm and cosy inside. It was from Tracey Redwood and her son Lewis who wanted to tell us how much they had enjoyed their Into the Blue experience and we love it when we hear from happy customers! Lewis's birthday present was a surprise junior rally driving experience at our rally school near Cirencester in Gloucestershire. At just 10 years old, Lewis is too young to have a driving licence, but that doesn't...

[caption id="attachment_210" align="alignright" width="250"] Learn how to slip and slide properly on a skid control experience[/caption] There's nothing quite like sliding in the car sideways down the hill from your house when trying to get to work on a snowy day and this winter we've found ourselves in this situation on more than one occasion. So we'll be putting skid control experience at the top of our birthday list this year (it's the 25th July by the way!). With any luck, the Big Boss at Into the Blue HQ will read this and send me off to one of eight...

Fancy learning to drive a powerboat?

[caption id="attachment_160" align="alignright" width="250"] With our two day powerboat courses you're a qualified boat driver![/caption] One day we just woke up and realised we couldn't remember the last time we had challenged ourselves to learn something new. Summer was coming up and seeing as we like doing a bit of wakeboarding, we decided to take ourselves off and learn how to drive a powerboat, with the hope of passing our International Powerboat Driving Licence. If you've got this, it means you can hire and drive a powerboat anywhere in the world. So, with vague ideas of being able to hire...

The Ariel Atom – Clarkson loves it and so do we!

[caption id="attachment_131" align="alignleft" width="250"] The Ariel Atom - the most fun you can have a road-legal car[/caption] 'Driving nirvana' he called it. 'One of the most beautiful cars in the world' he reckoned. These are the superlative words of Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson who concluded that driving the Ariel Atom was 'off the scale' in terms of excitement and, we hate to say it, but we might just have to agree with him! We've currently got two suppliers offering you the chance to drive the Ariel Atom in York, Birmingham, Kenilworth or Stafford. It might look like a half-built Formula...
