Public vs. private flights

For a special occasion, it’s worth choosing a private helicopter tour rather than a public one. This will mean that it is only you and your chosen guest (s) onboard. If you choose a public flight, you’re likely to have to share the cabin with others.

Make a special occasion even more unforgettable with our recommendations:

Proposal

What could be more romantic than popping the question in mid-air? Choose your location and surprise your loved one in true style.

Anniversary

Celebrate the date you met, got married, proposed…. Whichever date you mark as your anniversary, what better way to spend it than with a private helicopter tour?

Significant birthday

Invite family and friends and make their 18th, 21st, 30th or 50th birthday one they’ll never forget with a tour on a private helicopter.

Valentine’s Day

Treat your loved one to a ride in a private helicopter for a Valentine’s Day they’ll remember forever. Take a flight over the place you first met or somewhere that holds special memories for you both.

Graduation

Celebrate all their hard work and their newly acquired degree with a private helicopter flight, just the thing after all that revision and exam pressure.

Prom

They’ll be the envy of the friends and the talk of the school with a private helicopter ride to their prom. It’ll beat a standard limousine hands down!

Photography trip

If you love to take photos, capture your most stunning shots yet with a private helicopter tour.  You’re in full control and you can ask the pilot to get you closer to that perfect land or seascape.

Night flight or early morning, add diversity to your portfolio and unique prints to your walls. If you’re shooting somewhere that holds special memories, why not have your photographs turned into a canvas for the perfect gift for a loved one?

Retirement

Begin your retirement in style with a private helicopter tour. Invite family or workmates for a unique send off.

Visiting friends and family

If you have friends or family visiting from abroad and it’s the first time they’ve visited London, why not treat them to a flight over the city’s famous landmarks? It beats the Tube as a way to get around!

Arrive in style

Heading to Glastonbury, V or Reading this summer? Why not travel in style and arrive in a helicopter?

Think outside the box when it comes to your wedding a hire a helicopter rather than a classic car.

Racing, football or tennis? Whichever is your sport of choice, head to the event in a helicopter and make the day that bit more special. The British Grand Prix, the FA Cup final or Wimbledon, the choice is yours.

Looking to impress a key client or close a deal? A private flight will ensure they’re left with a lasting impression!

How much?

The price you pay for your private flight will vary depending on the aircraft, but, as a guideline, the hourly rate in the UK ranges from £180 plus VAT to around £350 plus VAT for a smaller helicopter, to £500 per hour plus VAT for larger aircraft.  

Typically, you can expect to pay around £800 plus VAT for a short distance fight between two points. This should be sufficient for an event such as a wedding.

Maximise your experience

A bespoke charter package allows you to combine your private helicopter flight with a hotel, restaurant, spa or golf booking to make the experience even more memorable.

  • Fly and dine – arrange to land in driving – or walking! – distance of your favourite restaurant   
  • Fly and stay – end your private flight in the grounds of a luxury hotel or spa
  • Fly and play – take a private tour to the golf course of your choice

Whether the weather…

When you are thinking about booking a private helicopter tour, consider the effect of the weather on your plans. Inclement conditions such as fog, heavy rain, strong winds, snow and thunderstorms can prevent a scheduled flight from taking place and whilst we all know how unpredictable the great British weather can be, it is worth planning your flight for the spring or summer months when the weather should – hopefully! – be on your side.
