What Can I Expect

Of all the things to do in the area a Portsmouth tour by helicopter has got to be pretty much at the top of the wish list! Touring bustling Portsmouth Harbour and the stunning Solent coast in a helicopter is a real thrill - and you get that breathtaking bird's eye view of everything.

Helicopter rides over Portsmouth set off from Solent Airport at Lee-On-Solent. This is the former Royal Navy Air Station known as HMS Daedalus, just four miles west of the city. Being so close to Portsmouth means that even on the Buzz helicopter tour, you'll get views of the Solent, Portsmouth and towards the Isle of Wight.

The City & Coast tour is a real insider treat, as you get to fly over the whole dockyard area, including the restricted access naval base that it is still very much in active service. Over 17,000 personnel work here and Portsmouth still boasts abundant ship building, with orders for vessels such as aircraft carriers, which you may well see from the air.

You might also see the historic part of the dockyard, home to the Mary Rose, HMS Victory and HMS Warrior, before flying over neighbouring Spinnaker Tower. This is a tour highlight for sure, as this 170m tall observation tower in the form of a sail is such a great landmark for Portsmouth. Seeing it from the air in a helicopter is just brilliant and it's totally photogenic too, so make sure you get some good aerial shots of the Spinnaker from your seat in the chopper!

On the longer Isle of White & Needles sightseeing flights you'll head over to the Isle of Wight to circle the famous Needles, as well as seeing all the local Solent and Portsmouth sights.

Being a Portsmouth tour, all the maritime action on the waters below you is central to these flights. Ferries, naval vessels, sailing boats and fancy cruise liners - all can quite easily be seen from the heli, which, for these rides, flies at around 1000ft, affording you superb views or life in and around this corner of south Hampshire.

Fantastic experience. The staff were warm, friendly and efficient. I wasn't remotely nervous at any point - I actually felt safer than being in an aeroplane. The pilot was really interesting. I would recommend this to anyone.
