If you have ever dreamed of being a helicopter pilot and flying with the rich and famous, then here is your chance to take that first step! With this amazing flying experience, you’ll get the chance to take the controls of a real helicopter under the watchful supervision of your experienced pilot. On arrival, your pilot will give you a brief introduction to the aircraft before you both plan your chosen flight path. Then it’s up and away as you are shown how to take off. Once in the air, your pilot will give you “on the job” tuition into how to control the helicopter, and then it’s your turn to take control. All the miles you accumulate during the flight can go towards you obtaining a full licence in the future. If however, you would prefer to simply sit back and relax and enjoy a fabulous helicopter ride, you are more than welcome to!

I was expecting a helicopter flight lesson but when I arrived I was told they only provided a flight experience. Not the fault of the Company as that is the only option they provide. Mislead by Buyagift. Very disappointed

Loved my experience at Heliair. I flew in a R22, having my PPL for fixed wing this was a fabulous experience to add to my flying. I enjoyed every minute and my instructor Matthew was great.

Superb present

This was an amazing present to receive. I got mine in October but as the expiry date is around 9 months there is plenty of time to wait to ensure you get a great day. I chose Heli Air in Gloucester. They were super. Based in a brand new hanger they are not only very professional but really laidback and makes you feel at ease. They do ask if you live nearby so they can fly over your house, so there is no set route they take. I also took my GoPro with me. They allowed me to either use a suction cup or chest harness. TBH flying the helicopter is relatively hard, 30 mins isn't quite long enough to really get the hang of it, but Heli Air get you on the controls ASAP to get you into it, you certainly don't just try for 10 mins. If you are looking for a special present for someone then this will be ideal!

A real thrilling experience
11 July 2017
We arrived early but were made welcome. They informed us of cafe to use where we could sit and watch others on their flights. When it was my turn I was fully informed of what to expect. Chris the pilot I was with was brilliant. The whole ground crew were helpful. Safety was a priority. I would fully recommend Heli Air to anyone wanting a flight experience of any kind.
