Nothing else comes close to touching the magic of vertical flight; from the moment you lift into the air to the second the helicopter settles gracefully back on the ground it is an unforgettable experience. Take your seat as the pilot climbs gracefully to over 1,000 feet and accelerates to over 120 miles an hour. You will interact with the pilot via the headset (don't forget to listen out for air traffic on the radio!), swooping over the landscape and then settling gently back on the ground.
On arrival you will meet your pilot and receive a brief technical and safety briefing then it's up, up and away as you accelerate vertically into the skies. Your pilot will put the helicopter through it’s paces to show you just how versatile these incredible machines really are. Skim across the trees and watch the world pass beneath you before coming into land after a five minute adrenaline rush that is sure to be the envy of all your friends!
