What Can I Expect

Great value high-flying nationwide helicopter trips! These exhilarating helicopter trips are offered at helipads, airports and airfields around the UK. Choose a 18 or 25-mile flight and enjoy seeing all the local landmarks from your unique aerial perspective. 

It's the thrill of travelling in true jet-set style. It's the excitement of taking to the air in a swanky helicopter. And don't forget, you can hover in a heli and soar at just 1000ft! Add to that the stunning views over the local landscape and you've got a sightseeing experience like no other.

Your experienced pilot will give you a commentary over your headset during your trip, so you get to hear interesting facts about the buildings, geological features and key sights all visible during your ride. Make sure you remember your camera, because there are bound to be plenty of unmissable photo opportunities that you'll want to capture and share.

All nationwide helicopter trips include a pre-flight briefing before you head out to the helipad and climb aboard the chopper. The fleets vary from one venue to another, but most operate trips using executive Bell Jet or Long Ranger helicopters.

And don't forget, your voucher is valid for helicopter centres around the country, so it's up to you where you fly from. It has to be said, there's nothing like heading over your own hometown, the area where you grew up or even treating yourselves to a panoramic view of where you are on holiday!
