Flying Experiences Birmingham

If someone asked you what your superpower would be, we bet flying would be high on the list!

Sadly, we can't grant you this superpower but we can offer you incredible flying experience days that'll give you a taste of what it's like to fly. From a serene hot air balloon ride, a helicopter ride over Birmingham, an aeroplane flying lesson or something a bit different with paramotoring lesson, there's a flying experience to suit everyone - a reason why they make excellent gift ideas too!

Helicopter Rides

Helicopter rides make fantastic gifts for several reasons. Firstly, they offer a unique and thrilling experience that many people may not have had the chance to enjoy before. It's not every day you get to soar above the landscape and take in breathtaking views! Secondly, they are a versatile gift that can be tailored to suit various occasions, whether it's a birthday surprise, an anniversary celebration, or a memorable way to propose. Helicopter rides provide a sense of adventure and excitement, making them such a memorable present.

When you take a helicopter ride over Birmingham or its surrounding countryside, you'll witness a fascinating blend of urban and natural landscapes. Flying over Birmingham, you'll see the city's iconic landmarks like the Bullring shopping centre, the Birmingham Cathedral, and the bustling city streets below. As you venture beyond the city limits, the scenery transitions to rolling countryside, where you can admire picturesque landscapes, lush green fields, and winding rivers. The helicopter's vantage point allows you to appreciate the beauty of both urban and rural environments in a way that ground-level views simply can't match, making it an unforgettable experience for anyone who loves exploring and seeing the world from a different perspective.

Hot Air Balloon Rides

Hot air balloon rides offer a unique and memorable experience, making them great gifts for an occasion. Floating above the countryside, you can take in breathtaking vistas of rolling hills, meandering rivers, and patchwork fields, offering a fresh perspective on familiar landscapes. The gentle sway of the balloon and the absence of noisy engines (well, there's the occasional bast of the burners!) create a serene atmosphere, perfect for quiet contemplation or casual conversation. Whether it's a birthday surprise or an anniversary celebration, hot air balloon rides provide a peaceful escape from the everyday hustle and bustle, making them a thoughtful and enjoyable gift choice.

Flying Lessons

Aeroplane and helicopter flying lessons make fantastic gifts because they offer a unique and exhilarating experience. Instead of just enjoying a ride, you get the chance to learn how to operate the aircraft itself. This hands-on experience not only provides a deep understanding of aviation but also instills a sense of confidence and accomplishment. It's an opportunity to step into the pilot's seat, take control, and gain valuable skills which can even contribute to a pilots license. Whether for the thrill-seeker or the aspiring aviator, these lessons offer an unforgettable adventure that will be remembered for a lifetime.

Indoor Skydiving

An indoor skydiving experience at The Bear Grylls Adventure in Birmingham is a fantastic gift idea for several reasons. Firstly, it's an activity suitable for a wide range of ages, starting from as young as 5 years old. This inclusivity makes it an ideal choice for families, friends, or individuals looking to share an exciting adventure with their loved ones. Additionally, the two 60-second flights provided in the package offer a taste of the exhilaration of free falling without the need for jumping out of an aeroplane! It's a safe and controlled environment that lets you experience the sensation of being airborne while being closely supervised.

Furthermore, the opportunity to learn flips, tricks, and acrobatics makes it extra fun, you're defying gravity! The Bear Grylls Adventure's indoor skydiving experience makes an amazing birthday surprise, family outing, or team-building event. This indoor skydiving experience promises unforgettable memories and the chance to soar to new heights.
