Important Bits

When

This is an incredibly popular experience, so the provider advises booking around 3-6 months in advance for most locations. As we are a gift experience provider, we advise giving the voucher for the occasion ( i.e birthday/ anniversary ) and allowing the recipient to choose a location, time and date that suits them.

The main flying season is April-October for most of the locations.

Validity

Your voucher is valid for 12 Months from the date of issue.

Please note you must have booked and taken your experience before the expiry date.

Who Can Go

  • For shared flights such as this one, ages 6 years to 13 need to be accompanied by an adult with a valid ticket. There is no maximum age limit.
  • Maximum height is 6’6”
  • Maximum weight is 12-15 stone ( depending on location and party size - see FAQ ).
  • You will share your flight with up to six other fare-paying passengers.
  • You should not take part if you suffer from epilepsy or vertigo. You should be in reasonable health, if you have any disability or illness that may prevent you from taking part then you must discuss this with the centre before booking.
  • We are happy to fly pregnant passengers however we cannot give medical advice, please consult your doctor if you have any concerns at all before taking your flight.
  • The above are only guidelines and may differ by location please check at the time of booking.

What about Insurance?

The centres contracted with us hold public liability insurance. We also hold contingency liability cover. You will not be liable for accidental damage to equipment, except where damage has been caused as a result of recklessness or wilful negligence.

A cancellation indemnity, subject to terms, is included with every voucher.

FAQs

Is this experience weather dependant? 

Yes, all flights are subject to weather, operational factors and are subject to the possibility of short notice cancellation.

As the weather is ever changing, the pilot will not make a decision until 6pm the evening before your flight. Please do follow the weather check process on your boarding pass

It is important to note that things can change at the last minute and whilst we try our best to predict the weather, reports are not always accurate.

Is this experience private? 

All helicopters can seat at least 4 people, but there are a few helicopters that have 6 spaces, so exclusivity is not guaranteed. 

What is the maximum participant weight?

Flying activities have maximum weights (per seat) to ensure health and safety along with the comfort of fellow passengers.

You must enter passenger/participant weight at the time of booking an experience. If weight varies between the time of initial booking and date of flight experience it remains the responsibility of the customer to update their individual weight via their online account prior to flight.

All passengers will be weighed before flight and if disparity exists between weight disclosed and actual weight (within reason), the passenger may be ineligible to fly.

The following weight restrictions cover multiple flying experiences:

Aeroplane Flying Lessons (2 Seater Aircraft) – Max 15 Stone (95kg)

Aeroplane Flying Lessons (4 Seater Aircraft) – Max 18 Stone (114kg)

Helicopter Flying Lesson - Max 15 Stone (95KG)

Pleasure Flights (Helicopter)
Group size of One – Max 15 Stone (95kg)
Group size of Two – Max 30 Stone (190kg)
Group size of Three – Max 43 Stone (273kg)
Group size of Four – Max 56 Stone (355kg)
Group size of Five – Max 66 Stone (420kg)
Group size of Six - Max 76 Stone (485kg)

Please note that the maximum weight limit for the Co Pilot Seat on a helicopter pleasure flight varies depending on aircraft and other operational considerations but will not exceed 95kg.

If as a party of one you weigh in excess of 15 stone, you may still be able to fly however you will need to purchase an additional seat. This seat will either have to remain unoccupied or can be occupied by an individual as long as the combined total as listed above is not exceeded. However, a total individual weight of 20 stone cannot be exceeded.

Is there an age limit? 

Shared Helicopter Flights – 6 years to 13 years (accompanied by an adult with a valid ticket). There is no maximum age limit.

Private Helicopter Flights - 2 years (accompanied). There is no maximum age limit.

Is there a maximum height?

The maximum height is 6ft 6 for helicopter rides.

Can I fly whilst pregnant? 

We are happy to fly pregnant passengers however we cannot give medical advice, please consult your doctor if you have any concerns at all before taking your flight.
