What Our Customers Say About Us
The whole experience was fantastic. Arriving a little nervous and wondering what lay ahead, I was quickly put at ease by the pilot Scott Dixon. His calm and clear instructions from the outset put me immediately at ease. He explained how the helicopter worked and went over the controls and dials. Once airbound he soon had me taking over the controls. The nerves were soon gone, thanks to Scott and taking charge was exhilerating! I would strongly recomend this company to anyone wanting to take to the air and try flying a helicopter!
I have always wanted to experience a helicopter flight and as the day approached I was so excited, and a little nervouse that it might not live up to my expectations. I need not have been worried because I had an absolutely wonderful experience, everyone was so friendly and helpful and the actual flight was brilliant. So much so that I now want to learn to fly. Thank you so much to everyone you made my day.
My wife bought this flight as a birthday gift. My son came along for the experience and I can honestly say what an experience it was from start to finish. My whole family were made welcome on arrival (even our dog. The weather was absolutely perfect, we were able to get some fantastic photographs and videos both on the ground and in the air. I would recommend this to anybody it was worth every penny and I am sure I will be booking up again!
Fantastic day out , went in 4 seater helicopter with my children they enjoyed it as much as I did. Would like to thank Scott and all who work there. Scott made me feel at home especially when I took the controlles. Would love to learn to fly, would really recommend this to everyone an experience never to forget
Just to thank everyone involved for a truly amazing experience so professional and well organised would recommend this to anyone...THANK YOU J Johnson
Sue Picton Bought my dad a trial lesson for his 70th birthday as a suprise present - and I am so pleased I did AND so pleased I used this company. My Dad had a brilliant experience - he hasn't stopped raving about it since. Steve, his "co-pilot", was brilliant, a lovely guy who immediately put him at ease and helped make the experience a really fun one. Flying over St James Park was a particular highlight for this mad Newcastle fan!! While he was in the air we (myself, my mum, two kids) were well looked after with complimentary refreshments and a great tv room where the kids watched cbbc while he was away on his flight - a brilliant set up, a lovely friendly team - I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone - my Dad had no flying experience before and the present certainly beat the usual cd, book or pair of socks!
Chris Burke Just completed my PPL with Northumbria Helicopters, and have enjoyed the journey every step of the way. Steve and Scott are a great team and together have helped me get the most out of my training. At times the training was challenging to say the least, just trying to hover for the first time and keep the machine pointing in the same direction takes me back. It is very rewarding for me now to sit in the hover and chat to the person next to me without really thinking about it, it feels quite natural. So many good memories to take away from the past 18 months, still can't quite believe I got there in the end! Looking forward to hour build now. Thanks for all you help and support Ashley, Scott and Steve. Chris
Dale Donald After taking a trial lesson at Northumbria Helicopters, I decided to go on to complete my PPL(H) with them, which I thoroughly enjoyed doing. I found that the instructors were both professional and friendly, and they always made sure I was getting as much as possible out of every lesson, and making the most of my money. They were always happy to reschedule my lessons if the weather wasn’t spot on, and I never felt any pressure to fly when I didn’t want to. The atmosphere at the school was very relaxed and personal, the aircraft were clean and well maintained, and the rates were extremely competitive with no hidden costs. The slots allotted by the school were an hour and a half, which left plenty of time for briefings and pre- flight, and meant that there was no rush to get things done once in the air. I found that their location at Newcastle International provided an excellent balance between flying in controlled and uncontrolled airspace: allowing me to quickly build up my radio skills and get used to operating with air traffic control when around the airport, but also having the quieter skies above Northumberland, just north of the airport, meant that my training wasn't interrupted by other traffic. Training was also available over at Carlisle airport, which is smaller and less busy, and meant that I could spend a session working on circuits or hover work without the disruption of the big jets and the international traffic at Newcastle, which was very handy indeed. I would highly recommend Northumbria Helicopters to anyone looking to get a PPL(H), or even just a trial lesson!
