The Main Event

Create memories for a lifetime with this awesome helicopter experience. You and up to three friends can immerse yourself in the sensation of hovering in a powerful helicopter whilst taking in the magnificent view below.

Reaching heights of 1000 feet once the helicopter accelerates away from the ground, your pilot will point out landmarks and sights to enjoy just before the machine returns back to the ground. Every moment will be worth capturing on a camera as the sights are truly stunning so high in the air.

A helicopter experience is a must do for everyone as you will reminisce forever about the sights and sounds you felt and how the jet powered helicopter made you feel as you floated above the earth!

Important Bits


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, however there are a handful of venues that run year round. 

The year round locations are: Newcastle, Gloucestershire, Cumbernauld, Nottingham & Waterford.

The St Ives location operates 12-16th August and 19-23rd August only


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

  • Minimum age: 6 (adult supervision required for under 16s on airfield premises).
  • Maximum height is 6’6”
  • Maximum weight is 12-15 stone (depending on location and party size - see FAQ).
  • Please contact the venue if you weigh over 15 stone.
  • The above are only guidelines and may differ by location please check at the time of booking.
  • 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.
  • Pregnancy: The experience provider is happy to fly pregnant passengers however they cannot give medical advice, please consult your doctor if you have any concerns at all before taking your flight.

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.

How it Works

All you have to do is pay for the experience you wish to purchase and we’ll send a voucher and booking information to you or directly to the recipient, then you just need to check the info and book your experience.


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.

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.


A photographer is present at every flight and customers can have their photos taken outside and inside of the helicopter. The framed photos will be available to purchase after the flight for £10.

Great Reviews

  • It was a gift voucher

    I had never thought about buying a helicopter ride myself but I am so happy my friends bought me this heli ride. Was great fun. Short ride but still the adrenaline was there without being scary. Very professional crew. Thanks guys!

  • Very well run, great experience

    Both my partner and I really enjoyed our experience. It was my first time, and not the first time for him. We both loved it. Very well run, great staff. Planning to come back with the whole family!

  • Difficult to find a flight

    Apparently this is a very popular thing so we had to have patience when we booked but well worth it. Easy to see why it's so popular as it is so thrilling. Flying is nothing compared to a helicopter ride.

  • Spinning blades and roaring engine!

    During the ride, I felt the wind whipping around while soaring through the sky. The noise of the helicopter's blades spinning and the engine roaring adds to the excitement of the experience. The pilot pointed out a few notable landmarks and sights along the way. It seems like a popular experience as availability was a little sparse but not impossible at all to book a date. Definitely one of the best gift I have ever received. Thanks mom and dad!

  • Should have tried this long time ago

    I went with my best mate and we had a blast. Perhaps we should have taken the 12 mile tour instead as the helicopter ride was over quick. We both agreed we should have done this long time ago. Now we got that off our bucket list. Next one is bungee jump if we are brave enough.
