Helicopter Rides & Flights

Helicopter rides are a great gift idea

So a special someone has a big day coming up to celebrate. No matter whether it’s a birthday or an anniversary, the pressure is on to come up with the perfect gift idea. It’s tough and each year it seems to get harder. No one wants to be boring and unoriginal, but after a while all the good ideas seems to have been used up already.

Forget the material and think about giving the gift of an experience instead. This opens up a whole world of possibilities. There are all kinds of fun things that most people have never had the chance to do, like helicopter rides for example.

Helicopter rides are a very different form of flying. A helicopter is much more versatile and maneuverable than a conventional plane. It’s a much more intimate experience with the added bonus that they can touch down almost anywhere. Why not arrive somewhere in real style, like a country house hotel for dinner, and then fly back?


Helicopter rides open up a whole new world of experiences. It’s a truly original gift that will knock someone off their feet. It’s a chance to see the world from a very different viewpoint and visit somewhere special. Anyone stuck for gift ideas should definitely look into helicopter rides.

Christmas gift Ideas

Helicopter rides you can control

With our trial helicopter lessons you can take the controls of a helicopter yourself. A trial lesson can be a great introduction to flying a helicopter. These are great gift ideas for those who have always wanted to learn to fly a helicopter but have yet to spread their wings. Trial lessons will count towards the Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL(H)), so are ideal for those who are serious about becoming a qualified pilot.

Even those who have never declared a desire to become a pilot would surely enjoy a trial lesson – you will always be in the company of a fully trained pilot. Typically, the pilot can take you to any pre-determined destination or over some sites you’re keen to see.

Those taking trial lessons don’t have to go it alone either. Depending on the size of the helicopter, there is usually plenty of room for friends or family members to come along for the ride if they are brave enough!

Helicopter trial lessons are just like normal helicopter rides except there is a teaching element which will count towards your Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL(H)) should you wish to take this further. Trial lessons make great gifts and are a good introduction to flying a helicopter.
