What Can I Expect

Fly over the famous 'Wolds' on a Cotswold helicopter tour! Often cited as being the most beautiful cluster of villages and towns in the country, the Cotswolds will take on a whole new meaning when you get to see it all from the air on this luxury heli tour.

Taking off from Gloucestershire Airport , you will be touring the local area in either a Robinson or a Single Squirrel helicopter. The spritely Robinson seats three plus the pilot, whilst the sleek Single Squirrel carries up to five passengers. And both definitely look the part, with leather seating and executive-style dark livery - just as any discerning VIP would like!

So, get comfy in your seat and prepare for take off. As you rise gracefully into the air, you'll be amazed how quickly you gain altitude. Before long you'll be high above this Area of Outstanding Nature Beauty and you'll be swooping over the picturesque countryside and wolds (which is the word for the gentle hillsides so typical of the Cotswolds). Our helicopter tour flight durations range from a five minute local buzz around, to a full 20 minutes.

During your tour you'll easily be able to pick out the Cotswold villages and towns below, as you watch out of the helicopter window. Depending on how long you've got, you might see Chedworth, with its famous 1700 year old Roman 'stately home' with mosaics, water shrine and latrine, as well as Cirencester itself and its famous amphitheatre. You may know these sights from the ground, but looking at them from 1000ft up in the air takes on a whole new meaning.

You certainly won't be able to miss Cleeve Hill either, the highest point of the Cotswolds at 330m above sea level, or the escarpment often referred to as Cotswold Edge that runs the length and the breadth of this most charming corner of the Shires.

We think a Cotswold helicopter tour is the only way to see this wonderful melange of rolling countryside, sleepy little hamlets and vibrant market towns. After all, in the Cotswolds it's all about history and heritage, from Roman origins to the pastoral ways of life that make this unique area such a delight to discover from the superb 'toy town' viewpoint that only a tour in an executive helicopter can give you.

My children bought the flight as a gift for my 70th birthday, I had a brilliant time, this was my 1st time flying so I was a little apprehensive but I felt safe with our pilot & he pointed out various places during our flight. I would definitely recommend this experience to friends. Thank you

Without doubt. I could not fault the service and experience from start to finish. The pilot Tim was very informative, pointing out various landmarks During the flight.

1st class from beginning to end. Excellent customer service & a really well informed pilot. We were booked on a flight which was not full so were offered the chance of a longer flight instead which was fantastic. We went over Bath & the Cotswolds & we could not have asked for anything better. I would be very happy to use the company again any time .

An Amazing experience. We were very lucky to have really good weather on the day we went up. It was brilliant we could see for miles. We did the 30 minute tour of the Cotswolds. It was well worth every penny. Would really recommend this trip.
