Helicopter City Tours
The trial flight was great. Lots of hands on experience flying over my local area. Got to have experience of a practice engine failure and hovering around the airfield.
Absolutely loved the flight as did my dad. It was his birthday present and lived up to both our expectations. Want to do it all over again. My favourite parts definitely when you bank the helicopter to one side and when you just seemed swish the helicopter round before we came into land. All the crew we met were friendly and helpful. Thank you for making our trip so memorable a big thumps up from my dad and myself
This was bought as a 50th present for me and it was an experience in a life time . Checked in ok and had the option to pay £20.00 extra to sit in the front which I paid to secure better visibility during the flight . 15 minutes goes so fast but the views and feelings from the movement of the helicopter is worth every penny. After the safety talk we waited until the helicopter landed and previous passengers got out then photos were taken of us standing beside it. The person in front also has another photo whilst wearing the headset. Soon after clearance we took off and toured Newcastle and Gateshead with good facts from the pilot who was very friendly. The landing was brilliant and mobile phones cameras etc are allowed during take off and landing . Not allowed when boarding though as full attention is needed for safety and the blades are running all the time . The downside but not important are the photos when we landed. I had the option if 2 as I sat in the front but costing £10.00 per photo was a bit too much especially after paying £20.00 to secure my seat . Took plenty photos and videos which have been posted on YouTube. Helicopter flight from Newcastle airport Will fly again with this company . Thank you .
Flight was great but maybe could have been longer. Only criticism is that since receiving this as a gift early this year you have consistently e mailed the guy who bought us the gift so we have never been able to talk to you directly.
Had a great time last weekend. The experience was well-organised and very safety conscious. Captain Aneel Nana was very good - friendly and welcoming. Though my flight was only brief I got what I wanted which was to fly in a helicopter. I would consider taking a longer flight next time, just to look around Newcastle. The front seat was, I think, worth the little extra money. Sitting there and looking through the 'bubble' was not a scary as I thought it might be. All-in-all an enjoyable experience.
Amazing present for my Dad and his partner to celebrate his 70th birthday. Only thing now is she wants lessons! Thank you for a magical experience.
