What Our Customers Say About Us

Kallum Brown

This was awesome! It was my first ever flight and I'll never forget it. I was sitting at the front and the views of St Ives and Godrevy lighthouse were fantastic but the flight was much too short - I loved it up there and I want to do it again, but for a longer flight this time! Thanks from Kallum (age 14)


We bought this adventure for our friends Jason and Julie as an X Mas gift it was a fantastic and would recommend it to everyone. I just wish it could have been a longer flight but maybe next time.


This was a gift from my partner Mark. Neither of us had been in a helicopter before so this was a great introduction to a helicopter flight. We loved it & would do a longer flight next time. Thank you to all the personnel involved, especially our pilot. One thing I would say would be, clearer signage needed to direct you where to go to check in, nobody really knew where to go. Other than that, a great experience, thank you!


Thank you for an amazing experience, something we will never forget! The crew their were so amazing and friendly, really made it the best experience.

Leanne Covey

Had a fantastic day. The staff are so lovely and professional. I took my mum who's 68 as she lost her best friend last year so I decided in going to get her doing lots I got her on a speed boat then booked this flight I really didn't know if she would go through with it but she did and she loved it so much she said she could feel a sense of calm. Anyways definitely recommended and after you can cross the road for a tipple. Thank you guys at the huntsman inn

Michelle Bell

Fantastic flight with Captain Alex House - thank you so much for such an amazing flight over Newcastle, was brilliant to experience this with my boys.


We had a fantastic sightseeing flight, over London, with Alastair. It was so good, it made us want to do it all over again!

Natalie Halliday

This started out as a surprise for my daughter but on booking it became an unexpected birthday treat for me! A great experience to always remember, at a brilliant price too.

Barbara Simpkins

excellent flight could have stayed up there for hours ... The captain was very informative lovely time and enjoyed champers and chocolates lol

Krzysia Gossage

Our family of four loved every minute, from the time we arrived and were checked in by Joanne who was so friendly and had time to chat, to our briefing with Dom and flight with Ian, and then the icing on the cake - champers and chocs! Wonderful views, all-round great experience. Goes to show a business can be highly efficient and very well organised without losing the personal touch.

Sophie Trinder

Fantastic. All the staff were lovely and the trip in the helicopter was very enjoyable. The pilot was really nice and friendly. We would definitely want to do it again. Next time for longer. I can’t fault the experience at all

Mary Barton

This has been something I’ve wanted to do for ages. It was even better than I imagined. Thank you so much. Very well organised and of course the champagne and chocolates were very much appreciated.

Kim Lee-Hall

Fantastic day all staff were so nice, friendly and helpful would recommend to anyone wanting a great experience that’s different.


I went with my husband and two sons, and knew it would be fun, but it was so much better than I could have expected, the pilot was great and flew right over our farm and home. The actual taking off was really exciting, and then the views once we were up in the air were amazing
