The sensation of being in a helicopter is unlike any other form of travel. With vertical lift and the ability to hover, a helicopter is so much more agile than a plane. It's these factors that make it an ideal vehicle from which to see the majesty of the British countryside. Flying at a height of around 1000ft, a helicopter gives you unparalleled sightlines across the landscape. You'll be soaring in the skies with a real bird’s-eye view; not only that, but the fully qualified and highly trained CAA pilot will also point out landmarks and points of interest during your flight. So, reach for the skies today, it's an opportunity you won't regret taking.

Excellant gift I bought this as a present for my dads 60th birthday and he couldnt wait to go in it. We took him today and he couldnt stop talking about it as he thought it was fantastic. To top the whole day off he got to sit in the front seat so it made his day. Thanks to the buyagift team and I would recommend this to anyone. 20 August 2011

My son bought me this experience for my birthday and I had such a good time. I never thought I'd actually get to go on a helicopter - there's no-one else I know who has that's for sure! The other people on board the flight were very pleasant and the pilot was very confident and answered our questions. I keep telling all my friends they should go one of these helicopter rides and maybe next time I'll go with one of them! 16 November 2010
