OK, so we might not be able to fly you to the moon, but we can offer you the next best thing. Imagine soaring through the sky, getting a bird’s eye view of the town and cities below and watching the specks of cars and people moving around getting on with their daily lives. Now imagine all this but giving it as a present to someone for their birthday or Christmas. You’ll be the favourite friend or relative for sure!
Starting at just £39, helicopter pleasure flights are much more affordable that you may have originally thought. Departing from different locations, you or the recipient will be able to take in spectacular views of Nottingham, Preston, Yorkshire or the Peak District. Rising to a height of 1,000ft, and travelling at speeds of up to 100mph, you’ll be able to see for miles. You could even make it a family occasion as more than one person can enjoy the flight at once. We even offer a discount to bookings of more than one person which makes our helicopter flights a unique and exciting adventure.
Depending on how generous you’re feeling; you can opt for a 6-mile or 15-mile trip. These roughly equate to 5 minutes and 10 minutes respectively of flying time. Or if you fancy going all out, people choosing to fly from Nottingham can upgrade their flight to 30 minutes long for just £99. For this you’ll get the helicopter exclusively for your party and you can even choose places to fly over. Flying over your own home is always a popular choice!
If you’ve already caught the flying bug, and want to take it a step further, then why not try a lesson. Many people dream of learning how to fly, but often it is just a pipe dream with money being the main issue. However, it need not be expensive with trial lessons starting at just £99. For £99 you’ll get a classroom briefing then a chance to put what you’ve learned, into practice with 15 minutes in the air. Don’t panic though, our helicopters are dual-controlled so you’ll be in the safe hands of your instructor at all times. Perfect for those adrenaline junkies and people who love adventure, taster helicopter flying lessons will leave you craving more. Prices range from £99 to £949 depending on how long you actually want to fly for, and how in depth you want the lesson to be.
The R44 Helicopter Discovery Day will give you a full two hours in the air where you’ll learn practical skills of controls, navigation, and if you (and your passengers who can travel in the helicopter with you for free) are brave enough, you can even have a go at some emergency procedures.
Flying in a helicopter for pleasure to see the views, or learning to fly it, will give you a sense of freedom which is second to none. Soaring high above the ground, taking in awesome views and better still, getting to enjoy it with your loved ones, is certainly the perfect and unique gift for everyone.
