Give someone the chance to soar with one of our great flying experiences.

For those who want sky-high adventures without the great heights, there are also indoor skydiving experiences and the chance to try out piloting skills in a genuine flight simulator. Any of our flying experience days will make an incredible gift for flight fanatics or anyone keen to try something new.
Ask anybody what they’d like their superpower to be and there’s a good chance they’ll say the ability to fly. Imagine floating with ease across the sky, looking down on everything below and feeling a huge sense of freedom. Our flying experiences allow you to take to the skies in various vehicles including helicopters, biplanes and hot air balloons, each of which offer a completely unique experience - travelling has never been so much fun!
For anybody who’s ever dreamed of flying their own plane, a light aircraft flight allows you to take over the controls and feel the amazing buzz of flying. Take in magnificent views from a two or four-seater plane on the most exhilarating of experiences. While we’ve all travelled on planes before, helicopters are a different machine altogether. The vertical take-off is astounding and you’ll be in awe of the chopper as it manoeuvres through the air. You can even take over the controls yourself! The distinctive roaring noise of the rotor blades is something that will stay with you for a very long time.
Offering unparalleled panoramic views of the British countryside below, a tranquil hot air balloon flight provides a truly unique experience. Gliding effortlessly thousands of feet above the ground, a balloon flight is always a romantic activity to enjoy with a partner. Alternatively, if you like the idea of flying but seem to suffer from vertigo at the mere mention of the word, our indoor skydiving days are ideal. Experience the sensation of freefall in a mighty wind tunnel as you hover in the air. Best of all, you won’t even need to jump out of a plane!
After spending most of our lives with our feet on solid ground, Red Letter Days’ flying activities allow you to experience a completely different sensation.
