What Can I Expect

Experience the adrenaline of a six-mile helicopter buzz sightseeing flight at your choice of location from helipads and airports nationwide! You will get to see what the world looks like from the very different angle of a helicopter with these brilliantly-priced trips.

If you have never been in a helicopter we seriously recommend it. They are so different to any other form of flight, as you take off vertically and can hover like no other aircraft. It's all really rather exciting as you get ready to embark on your buzz flight in an executive Bell helicopter.

And indeed, you're sure to feel like you're living the high life as you get into the chopper and take off, waving to friends and family below as you zoom skywards. The views, no matter where you're sitting in the chopper, are amazing. Everything seems to be in miniature and it is utterly fascinating.

These helicopter buzz sightseeing flights are offered at a full range of venues across the country and you  get to choose where you want to take your experience. All rides will start with a safety briefing before heading out to the heli on the pad. Once all strapped in and kitted up with a headset, the rotors will be started up and away you go!
