Relive incredible aviation history with this fascinating Dambusters helicopter experience for two. Board the chopper for a 20-minute flight and soar over the same route used to train pilots for the famous Dambusters raid. This vital operation in the Second World War required 19 Lancaster Bombers to pull off a daring raid deep into Nazi Germany, keeping a precise height of 60 feet throughout the bombing run. You’ll take in spectacular aerial views over the Peak District and marvel the wonderful sights of Chatsworth House, the Mam Tor rock formations and Derwent Valley. Feet firmly back on the ground, enjoy a tasty cream tea whilst talking about your unforgettable experience.

Not happy 4 days before our flight it was cancelled, this ment we had to try to cancel our hotel stay but they said it was to short notice so we wasted our money.

Hi there, I am sorry to hear this happened. Unfortunately flying experiences are very weather dependant for health and safety reasons, I'm sorry to hear the booking had to be cancelled so close to the event. If you require any further help with this please do not hesitate in contacting our customer services. Thank you for leaving your feedback.

Special birthday present

This was given as a gift to my daughter as a 40th birthday present. Everything to do with the flight was brilliant. The only disappointment was the cream tea. ( If you can call it that.) This was a shop bought cheap scone with a shared pot of jam and clotted cream, served on a paper plate and a coffee/tea served in a paper cup. Very very disappointing. I would recommend the flight but don't waste your money on booking this package.

Got airborne eventually!

This is a flight we would have taken about 14 months ago but for that nasty little bug. Anyway eventually got off the ground and thoroughly enjoyed it. Everyone concerned with the running of the flight was friendly and very helpful, and above all very professional. Would certainly recommend the company. And the location, between Bakewell and Buxton, was lovely. As was the cream tea.

Fantastic gift fabulous experience. But nobody seemed to know about the cream tea? Thankfully the quick thinking man at our venue rustled up some yummy cake tea and pop. Wonderful day!!!
