Nothing beats the sensation of zipping around in a chopper – it’s how the rich and famous like to travel and it’s a fantastic way to soak in the sights of the beautiful British countryside. On this 12 mile pleasure flight, soar to around 1000 feet and enjoy breathtaking aerial views of the local countryside while the pilot points out local landmarks along the way. Bring along a camera to capture the impressive imagery so you can re-live the experience back on terra firma.
