What Can I Expect

North, south, east and west this is Blue Skies heli tourism throughout the UK! These helicopter tours give you the chance to ride in an executive heli and see the amazing sights all around you. With helipads, airports and airfields all over the country signing up to offer these mini heli flights, isn't it time you booked your seat?

If you've never flown in a helicopter before, it's completely normal to feel a little apprehensive as those rotor blades start turning. Once airborne and in forward flight across those inviting blue skies, it all feels surprisingly smooth.

Now you're soaring through the sky, it's time to get down to the business of some serious sightseeing - after all, that's what helicopter tourism is all about! And of course, this isn't seeing the sights as you know it, this is enjoying them with a breathtaking bird's eye view.

You'll see so much more from a heli than out of your usual teeny airliner window, so expect to spot all those familiar places and landmarks as you go. And if you're having trouble adapting to your new viewpoint, worry not, your pilot will be pointing them out to you.

As helicopters (even the posh ones) are quite noisy, each passenger will be given a headset to wear. Not only does this protect you from the noise, it also serves as an intercom, so you'll be able to hear what your pilot is saying to you as you fly.

Back at base after your excursion, the bubbly will be coming out and you'll be able to toast your trip with a flute of bubbles. And the little box of artisan chocolates you’ll receive is another really nice little touch to make these flights extra special.

We have to say, with heli tourism getting increasingly popular, we're delighted to be able to offer these short, sweet and very affordable sightseeing trips from venues all around the UK. Here's to blue skies and happy passengers!
