What Can I Expect

Brilliant helicopter rides in Blackpool! See piers, promenades, the famous Pleasure Beach and the Blackpool Tower from the air on these thrilling 30-minute helicopter tours!

Setting off from Blackpool Airport, you couldn't get any nearer to the famous seaside resort if you tried. This historic airport is just south of the town towards Lytham St Annes, perched on the hillside above the sea. Flying has been happening here since 1909 and it's a superb departure airport for these rides and just so convenient too.

After take off, the helicopter will head north towards Blackpool. You will easily be able to point out sights such as the three piers, the pretty Winter Gardens and Stanley Park from the chopper - and it really is amazing to look down on it all.

As well as the beaches and town, you will, of course, fly right over Blackpool Tower. The tower has dominated the skyline on this seaside resort since 1894 and you’re in for a treat with a superb aerial view of this iconic landmark.

Using the headset intercom, your helicopter pilot will point out more intricate landmarks in Blackpool town centre, such as the Grand Theatre, the red brick Victorian Imperial Hotel and Bonny Street Market. You will even be able to see people riding the famous 'Big One' roller coaster at the famous 42-acre Pleasure Beach theme park and fun fair.

Book your seat for your Blackpool helicopter ride -it’s the best and only way to see this much-loved resort from the air!
