What can I expect on the day

See the city from the air on these helicopter trips with views of London's skyline! Your mode of transport for these fabulous experiences will be executive helicopters just like the rich and famous use to get from A to B in double-quick time - only you will want to savour every moment as you hover over the Home Counties to catch sight of London glistening on the horizon.

The helicopter trips towards London can be taken from Essex, Hertfordshire and Surrey. As you take off, you will watch as the leafy suburbs and countryside give way to sights of skyscrapers, traffic and railway lines all converging into the heart of the city. The flight will last between 12 and 15 minutes, which gives you enough time to swoop in low as well as climbing high in the sky to give you a variety of viewpoints as the rotors whirl.

Then when you arrive back at the helipad, you will have the opportunity for a quick photocall in front of the impressive-looking chopper, before heading into the airport cafe for a spot of lunch. All venues have large outdoor terrace areas overlooking the runway, so you can watch the ground activity as you relax over a meal after your exciting aerial trip near London - and maybe share the photos you took from the helicopter with your fellow passengers.

If you choose the VIP tour, also available from three locations, the fun begins before you've even taken off, as you will be welcomed by the crew with a glass of bubbly. After getting settled in your seat in the helicopter, it's time to start the helicopter up and once your expert pilot has gained permission to fly from air traffic control, you will be rising gracefully and rapidly into the sky. Your flight will last around 20 minutes and you will see rural countryside gradually build up and then the amazing skyline of the City of London.

These helicopter trips are available from March to November, so you can see the sights at their spring, summer and autumn best, or head to North Weald for year-round departures.

The team on the ground at Redhill were very unorganised; pieces of paper flying around in the wind, staff not really knowing who had checked in so constantly walking around asking guests for their flight numbers. The pilot was polite and informative, a 'glimpse' of London was a bit of a generous statement with regard to the sight, Surrey fields were in abundance as was Croydon.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Hi Lisa, thanks for your feedback. We'll pass on your comments to the supplier regarding the administration on the day. We do offer sightseeing flights over central London however these are a little more expensive.

Because we had to hover whilst a light aircraft took off I feel that the flying time was cut short. We did not go as near to London as I thought we would, I couldn't recognise any of the buildings. The experience of flying in the helicopter was fantastic, very pleased with the photographs that were taken, and the staff were great. Overall a good experience. I would now like to take a longer flight.
Yes, I recommend this product.
