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 its paces to show you just how versatile these incredible machines really are. 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! Your flight lasts for five minutes from take off to landing but the whole experience will last for around 20 minutes.

OMG the helicopter thrill ride was amazing! My friend bought this experience for me thinking it would help cure my fear of heights. I was nervous at first but once the pilot got our helicopter in the air I had the time of my life. The helicopter moves so gently that I felt completely safe and the pilot was friendly. Thank you buy-a-gift!

I'd always wanted to have a go in a helicopter and when my husband bought me this experience for my birthday I was absolutely thrilled. The pilot was really friendly and everything and it was just so exciting. Now I'm going to have to save up for my own helicopter!
