What Can I Expect

Book a 30-minute helicopter tour and see your world from a whole new perspective! Available at airports, airfields and helipads all over the country, you're never far away from a fascinating flight path with these thrilling half-hour tours by executive helicopter.

There's no doubting that flying over a place you know so well is amazing. From your viewpoint in the heli at around 1000ft, you get those amazing birds-eye views that can't be beaten. Whether it's urban, coast or country, it's utterly enthralling to look down on it all from the air.

Each one of these 30-minute tours by helicopter has a different flight path. From bustling cities with skyscrapers you could almost touch, to wild coastline you can't even reach on foot, there is truly something to wow every passenger from every departure point.

All tours are operated by executive helicopters such as the Bell Jet Ranger or the Bell Long Ranger. Both offer incredible views (especially if you're up front next to the pilot, where the floor is glass!) and both are very smooth in flight.

In 30-minutes you will see an awful lot and cover lots of ground, because, although it might not feel like it, the helicopter is flying at around 150mph. See prepare yourself for everything from lakes, mountains, ports and forests, to stately homes, castles and a whole lot more. And of course, your pilot will be pointing out what you can see as you fly.

We mustn't forget to give the ground crews a mention. They are the ones who coordinate the trips, look after you on the ground before and after your flight, as well as ensuring the helicopter is also looked after. They are super friendly and helpful and really make your outing feel special.

These 30-minute helicopter tours are available in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Book your seat online with us now and get ready for a truly wonderful half hour trip by helicopter.
