Brilliant loved every minute of it defo do it again.
A must - So amazing!
This was my first helicopter flight and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The flight was smooth and the pilot was very informative which made the whole experience one I will remember for a very long time.
Been on my bucket list for a long time, very friendly people, Josh who booked me in and made me a coffee was very friendly. My Pilot and instructor Anil was knowledgeable and gave clear and concise instructions ( ok 50% went straight out of the other ear ) I was able to take control of the helicopter for a while under very good guidance. A great memory!
Booked an hour taster lesson for my birthday after having wanted it for so long; it did not disappoint! Everything was broken down into component parts & explained exactly as much as I needed it to be. Neil had given me full control within the first 5 minutes in the air - I'm not sure what I was expecting but having control that quickly was incredibly satisfying. It was an intense, exciting challenge and I was grinning from the moment we powered up to the moment we touched back down. Thanks very much for everything - looking forward to continuing my lessons at Northumbria Helicopters.

Had a really great helicopter flight with Northumbria Helicopters, excellent staff very warm welcome. Trevor my instructor was very knowledgeable and gave great tuition. Explaining helicopter flight including speed and height control, I flew, climbed and bank turned the helicopter. Also tried to hover at the end of the flight. Great day, great flight thoroughly enjoyable morning / experience.
Just returned from my helicopter flying lesson with Northumbria Helicopters at Newcastle Airport. What a fantastic experience! I loved every minute of it. I was not expecting to take control of the helicopter so quickly. Within 5 or 6 minutes into the flight I had full control. I absolutely loved it. Thank you Claire Louise Worsfold for booking it for me and thanks to Aneel the pilot, a great guy. Thank you for an amazing experience.
I just wanted to express my gratitude for an amazing time during my trial lesson, from the moment I arrived I was made to feel relaxed and comfortable including a great cup of tea from Joshua, then the flight with Aneel was just breathtaking. Taking the controls was amazing as I now have a much deeper understanding of how a helicopter functions and an infinitely deeper respect for the pilots. Thank you so much again for an amazing experience!
I had such an amazing day!
I received a flight as a christmas gift from my children. I booked it for Easter Sunday morning. We were lucky with the weather and could see for miles and miles. The pilot provided a commentary throughout the flight on well known landmarks. I loved the experience and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you so much.
This was a gift from my hubby for my 60th birthday. What a fantastic experience. From arriving there we were felt to feel at ease and our pilot Aneel Nana was brilliant. The whole half hour was special with Aneel pointing out all the landmarks. Thanks again Aneel and Northumbria Helicopters would highly recommend.
"I flew gliders from the age of 12 till 20+. Spent 20 years overseas and was on a commercial jet every second day of my life, been everywhere you can think of. I casually mentioned to my partner that I had spent my life in airports and flying all over the World, but had never been in a helicopter. She got me a flight as a birthday present. The BEST thing I have done in years and I don''t have a boring life). Absolutely loved it. God, I am so going to do this again, but much longer next week-end hopefully). I''m on the website checking my options already. Brilliant guys, thank you."
My Grannie bought me a pleasure flight for my 13th Birthday. It was absolutely fantastic and the guys at Northumbria Helicopters are great. Thanks again for a brilliant birthday experience!
