What Can I Expect

Take a helicopter ride from the Birmingham area and discover the wonders of the historic Severn Valley whilst enjoying the thrill of being in a luxurious helicopter! This fascinating corner of the country has quite a few little surprises to show you and as you hover over the towns and villages in your fancy chopper, your pilot will point all those main landmarks out to you.

If you fancy a short, but very sweet hover around the local countryside, the buzz flight will give you just enough time to feel totally exhilarated by the fact that you are actually in a fancy helicopter, whilst you whizz over farmland, fields, little lakes and country lanes around the Bobbington area, from where you take off.

If you love delightful Bridgnorth, we can highly recommend the 10 minute ride, that'll see heading over there to look directly down on High and Low town on the right and left banks of the River Severn respectively. It's a great way to see this lovely little English market town and if you look carefully you might spot the famous Castle Hill funicular railway!

But the ultimate experience has to be riding out of Birmingham in the helicopter to quickly come across one of the most photographed sights in the whole of the Midlands - the Iron Bridge at Telford. This was the first arch bridge to be built out of cast iron and is seen as something of a symbol of the Industrial Revolution which put towns like Birmingham and Wolverhampton firmly on the manufacturing map. Still as beautiful and impressive today, the bridge takes on a whole new allure when viewed from the air.

The helicopter's flight path for your 20 minute excursion then follows the tranquil River Severn heading away from Birmingham along the Ironbridge Gorge, where the waters flows freely. You'll be able to spot the Blists Hill Victorian Town, Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron and even the large brick kilns that were so common in the area as you fly. You'll then come across Dudmaston Hall, a manor house and village built by John Birch in 1870 that dominates the local countryside - see if you can spot the cure boathouse from the helicopter!

Helicopter rides out of Birmingham operate out of the ex RAF airfield that is now known as Halfpenny Green Airport near Bobbington, west of Birmingham's city centre. You will take your helicopter ride of discovery in either a Robinson R44 helicopter or a single squirrel, with an expert pilot at the helm as you explore the Black Country beyond Brum!

My wife and I wanted to celebrate our children s birthday a little different being 21 so, instead of the usual things like watches and items of expensive clothes we opted for an experience which, was fantastic. We all had a fabulous time and we recommend it to anyone who wanted totry something different.

Excellent experience, friendly and efficient staff, roomy cabin in helicopter,really enjoyed it...my only suggestion is clearer instructions that meeting point is actually in the café at the airport and signage on site could be improved...overall a great experience at the right price.
