What Can I Expect

Book your exclusive Brighton helicopter tour and see this famous seaside town from the air! Brighton is bubbling, vibrant and colourful. What better way to see all that this wonderfully eclectic town has to offer than by chopper? Get ready to zoom along the shoreline and over the town on these Brighton sightseeing flights by privately chartered helicopter.

Departing from Brighton City Airport at Shoreham, it's seaside sights from the word go. Even the main terminal building at Brighton is an Art Deco delight. As you follow the River Adur to its estuary guarded by Shoreham Lighthouse and Shoreham Redoubt, you'll follow a coastal flightpath to Brighton, seeing the likes of the Greyhound Track and Sussex County Cricket ground at neighbouring Hove as you go.

Flying over the ruins of the West Pier and past the glistening i360, you'll realise you're now right over the heart of Brighton. See if you can spot the higgledy-piggledy little streets of The Lanes. Pick out the Royal Pavilion in all its ornate finery and look down on Victoria Gardens. There's no missing the Palace Pier on these Brighton tours, as the helicopter swoops over those boardwalk bars and theme park rides, heading in the direction of the bustling marina.

On the Buzz flights you're in the air for around 10 minutes. If you want to fly further for longer, go for the Brighton Sights tour, which gives you 20 minutes in the air.

Both the Buzz and Sights flights are offered as private charters. These personalised Brighton sightseeing flights are actually great value for money, as the cost is for the whole helicopter and not per person.  So, get three of you together and have the whole heli to yourselves.  And remember, this is the brilliantly cosmopolitan Brighton, so make sure you bring your camera to snap all those sights and landmarks!
