What Our Customers Say About Us

Ann Jacobs

Thoroughly enjoyable something I have wanted to do for a while. The photo that they took in front of the helicopter was good quality as I do not usually like my photos.

Dawn

Alasdair Johnstone

A really good experience from a friendly greeting including a nice cup of tea leading to the informative pre flight brief. Jason my pilot for the flight gave loads of information in an interesting way with a great delivery which made me feel I was in good hands. The flight was excellent and the only advice to anyone considering a flight would be 20 minutes is to short, if you’ll excuse the pun, the time just flys over, take a longer flight. A really good experience.

My lovely friends bought this flight for me for my 70th birthday.i can't begin to explain what a brilliant experience it was ..the people on the ground put me entirely at ease and looked after me so expertly that I was excited without being at all apprehensive.on board the helicopter the pilot..Capt Jason Dearn was so calm and efficient and made the flight extremely comfortable even though it was a very windy day. I had an amazing view as I was in the co.pilot seat .I can highly recommend this experience...and I'm so excited to say that my sons also bought me a flight for 30 minutes which I can hardly wait for now I know what to expect... thank you again to everyone involved today 🤗

Sean

VIP flight Booked as a birthday treat for my wife, flying from Kemble airfield in Gloucestershire on 31 October 2021. All staff were very welcoming from the moment we arrived and all the way through the experience. The flight, in a obviously well maintained and pristine Bell Jetranger, was excellent. Our pilot, Ian Lowe, was extremely friendly and highlighted points of interest on the flight. The only downside was that he flight seemed to pass way too quickly. That was down to us - we should have booked one of the longer flights! Many thanks to Ian and all the staff at Kemble airfield.

Ruth

Never been in a helicopter before so quite nervous! No need! The whole experience was wonderful, all the staff so friendly and welcoming, any questions dealt with in such a professional calm way. The pilot Ian was top rate, a lovely smile and manner, pointing out features along the way and I was completely at ease and by the end I was ‘on cloud 9’ with the whole experience and feeling a little emotional!! Thank you.

John Race

Have just been to Newcastle for my trial helicopter flight. What a wonderful experience to take the controls under supervision. Jason the pilot gave a comprehensive safety/instruction brief in plain English and a fantastic flight around the area. The other team member, Brian, is a wealth of knowledge and talked at length about the helicopter and other sites they visit. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Fiona Farmer

Really enjoyed out flight today. All the crew were fantastic and friendly Thank you

Mary Kent

Hi Jason Thank you for a really enjoyable flight. It was good to see the views especiall as it was over the area where we live and the comments of where we were. It was my son's and grandaughters first flight and now i think like me they have the bug to keep doing it.

Val

Very professional, enjoyable experience.

James Matthews

Thoroughly enjoyable trip only wish it could have been longer. Gives a different perspective on the ground below. My grandson in the co-pilot seat gave it a thumbs up and said it was COOL, and wants to fly again but for longer. Many thanks J. Matthews

Rebecca Hamilton

Amazing trial helicopter lesson, more than I had expected! Our captain, Jason was very chatty and pleasant from the start. He went through some info on the ground before we set off. My partner was able to come along which we hadn’t expected so that was amazing that she could share the experience too! I wasn’t particularly good haha but Jason reassured us that nothing bad would happen and we felt safe the whole time. Great views and overall experience! I’d genuinely be interested in more lessons in the future. Thanks so much!

Roland Newsholme

Excellent flight. Just not long enough! Staff were lovely and very friendly. Will look to book something longer in the near future

Patsy Pringle

Great experience staff friendly and well organised flight was excellent wished I extended for longer flight time. Well worth it

Beth McCulloch

From the minute me and my little girl arrived, the ground crew welcomed us making the experience start from that point. From the guy who took our names, the ground crew who ensured our safety and the photographer, everyone was friendly. The helicopter ride itself was absolutely amazing. We got an amazing view of our home town, Edinburgh, great close up flying to Arthur’s seat, seen our flat and some of our friends and families. It was an amazing experience and a perfect gift/experience to have. Thank you to the captain and all the ground staff for making it an unforgettable experience from start to finish.

Glyn Martin

I cannot recommend adventure 001 highly enough. We were bought a 30 minute pleasure flight as a 40th birthday present. The booking process was simple, the company contacted us on the lead up to the flight and the staff on the day were friendly and professional. The pilot talked us through the flight easing some nerves and made us appreciate the flight more. Thanks for a great day
