See the sights of London spread out below
A helicopter ride is not an everyday occurrence and it's easy to feel like a pair of celebrities when boarding against the wind of the blades and during the exciting vertical take-off in a Long Ranger or a Twin Squirrel. Once in flight, fly through the Surrey countryside until the sprawl of London City comes into view. With an unforgettable vantage point, it's easy to get an amazing perspective on the geography of the city and the beauty of its landmarks. See the sparkling River Thames, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and much more. Whether tourists or Londoners born and bred, prepare to see the capital in a whole new way.

This is a weather dependent activity, mainly due to wind speeds and cloud base above the ground. It is crucial to call the venue before setting out to check conditions. All cancellations are rebooked directly with the venue.
A 15 to 30 minute safety briefing takes place before the flight, then flight time lasts up to 30 minutes from engines-on to engines-off. Please arrive a few minutes in advance of the booked time to ensure a prompt start.
