Carol Gardiner

Ian, our pilot, was very informative and friendly. He asked us if there was anything in specific we would like to see during our flight. He explained how high and how quickly we were flying and pointed out key features of our wonderful landscape. I captured Cirencester's amphitheatre and the Parish Church of St John the Baptist. I was very pleased to see that we still have lots of green pastures left….at present! Ian manoeuvred the helicopter with ease, precision and professionalism. Three out of the four of us had never flown in a helicopter before and they were buzzing with the thrill of it. Ian made it all the much better as we had a good laugh and banter with him. Thank you Ian 👏👍.

Philip Kirkland

Captain Jason, thank you so much for a brilliant afternoon flight and a glimpse of Newcastle. From the warm welcome, simple check-in, reassuring safety brief and the helpfulness of all, we certainly had a great time with you. For me, having retired from the Metro after 50 years, it was a real thrill to fly over our new train depot at South Gosforth (see pic)...it looks fabulous. We purchased our souvenir photos which were a lovely touch too. The flight was a present from our children and grandchildren, but I think we will be back with you for another flight soon. Oh, and thanks for arranging the good weather on the day! Would recommend this activity and the operators to all my friends out there. Take care, see you soon. Phil and Karen.

Stuart Inman

WOW what an absolutely amazing experience. We took in the London Helicopter tour from Biggin Hill yesterday and there are almost no words to explain how fantastic it was. Nick was a superb pilot, he explained everything so well and calmed any nerves with his cool demeanour. We were very fortunate with perfect conditions and saw all theLondon sights you could want to see, plus we almost flew over our own home. Memories that will live with us all forever, thank you.
