What Can I Expect

See the sights of the capital like never before on a London helicopter tour and marvel at the amazing aerial perspective when flying just 1000ft off the ground! Just imagine following the winding waters of the Thames in your chopper to look down on some of London's most famous landmarks. A truly magical rotary experience.

Based out of Elstree Airport just within London's M25 boundary, this is the place for helicopter charters by top flight business folk and VIPs. Within seconds of taking off on your tour, you'll be rewarded with incredible views of the interlaced network of motorways and roads, rail lines and stations. This is suburban London life at its best as everyone gets on with the hustle and bustle of the daily routine.

There's nothing mundane about your 'commute' though. This operator uses the AS355 twin-engined Squirrel for these London helicopter tours. One of the main advantages of helicopters over planes (as well as that superb hover and vertical take off ability) is that all passengers are afforded great views with large windows all round.

All the better then, for peering down and witnessing London as it happens. On the London Sightseeing helicopter tour, the routing in is via the likes of Tottenham's stadium, Banbury Reservoir, the Olympic Park and the Isle of Dogs.

As you fly over central London, you will be treated to the full tour of the capital. Following the flow of the Thames, you'll check out what the likes of the Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, St Paul's Cathedral, the Shard and the Houses of Parliament, with a glimpse of Buckingham Palace beyond. Passing over Arsenal's stadium you make you way back to Elstree, you fly over Alexandra Palace as you go.

Keep a keen eye as there is so much to see. With such amazing views on a London helicopter tour, bringing a camera onboard with you is an essential, as zooming over Greater London and towards the City offers up fab photo opportunities. And don't worry if you don't know your cathedrals from your iconic skyscrapers, your experienced helicopter pilot will point out all the sights during your flight.

Everything was as expected, very satisfactory. We both thoroughly enjoyed the flight and to add to our satisfaction the journey to and from Elstree went very well,one minor holdup to match a ' hold ' over Tower Bridge.

Location not all that obvious to start with (could be signed better) but staff very friendly and helpful on arrival and at briefing. Although 30 mins for the experience does not sound very long, it was actually about right. We had perfect weather to get fantastic views of London - would certainly recommend.
