What Can I Expect
Enjoy an exclusive Surrey helicopter tour for up to three people! Whether it’s to share with friends or family, you and your loved ones will adore these Thames Valley helicopter flights that are chartered just for you. This part of the world is fascinating to explore - and made all the more exciting by the fact that you’ll be doing it in a helicopter!
The base for this chopper is Blackbushe Airport. After life as an RAF base, scheduled flights started operating out of this conveniently located Surrey airfield. This was commercial air passenger travel in its infancy and it was a busy time for Blackbushe. Then a little old place called Gatwick opened and the airlines moved to there.
After a fair few wilderness years, the airfield is now a busy General Aviation airport in the heart of the Thames Valley, with helicopters, microlights and other light aircraft on site. It’s a great little location, with a warm and friendly welcome. Not only is it ideal for flight training, it’s also ideal for sightseeing expeditions like these exclusive heli tours around the local Surrey area.
When we say exclusive, that means you are chartering the whole helicopter. Alongside the pilot, this Robinson R44 can seat three passengers, so you can invite two family members or friends to join you in the heli for these Surrey tours.
There’s so much to see from the air too. On take off, see if you can glimpse neighbouring Sandhurst and the famous Royal Military Academy. As you commence your flight itinerary west, you’ll realise just how green the Thames Valley is, as your helicopter swoops over the some of Surrey's finest of golf courses and country parks.
You’ll easily pick out the busy M4 weaving its way along the southern outskirts of Reading, as the countryside gives way to the town. You’ll continue to head north on your exclusive tour, with the helicopter taking you as far as Henley on Thames. Sitting on the edge of the Chiltern Hills and on the banks of the River Thames, this is a rather idyllic spot and really quite pretty with the rows of houses lining the river.
Henley is the turning point of your exclusive Surrey helicopter tour, so it’s time to cruise back to base after your wonderful 20-minute aerial adventure.
