Overview

Take to the skies and experience an incredible journey back in time with this insightful Dambuster helicopter experience for two. Climb on board the chopper and fly the same route used to train the pilots for the famous Dambusters raid. Operation Chastise, later called the Dam Busters, was a vital operation during the Second World War, whereby 19 Lancaster bombers were required to pull of a bold raid into Nazi Germany while flying at precise height of 60ft throughout the bombing run. Whilst soaking up a slice of aviation history, enjoy breath-taking aerial views of the Peak District, the Mam Tor rock formations, Chatsworth House and Derwent Valley. After the remarkable experience, enjoy a delightful cream tea to top the day off perfectly.

Great helicopter trip, shame about the cream tea.
The ground crew were friendly and made us feel safe. The helicopter trip was fantastic, we had a perfect day and the views were stunning. A really great experience. We had paid for a cream tea after the trip, to round off the day. We had to ask about the cream tea as nothing was mentioned, with staff concentrating on selling the welcome photos they’d taken. When we did speak to someone they looked a little sheepish, but we were instructed to go to the pub and they would sort it. In the pub we were told that ‘we don’t do them’ and ‘you can have a cake and coffee and we’ll just see what cake we’ve got left’. We left, disappointed. This really took the shine off what should have been a great day (and which was a birthday present). We certainly didn’t get what we paid for, and staff seemed largely unconcerned (although they were very happy we bought the photo).

Dambuster flight
It would have been great if we had gone. Cancelled the night before they say due to covid after we had travelled up from Bristol
