Michelangelo Da Vinci sketched some of the earliest helicopter prototypes way back in the fifteenth century.
Raise a glass to the ultimate Renaissance man with today’s Big Deal on a thrilling helicopter flight with Adventure 001.
Take to the skies from Prestwick Airport and enjoy a twelve mile winter skies experience.
Taking off from Prestwick Airport, passengers will sail into the blue in a Bell 206 Jet Ranger (or its equivalent).
After hovering just above ground, your helicopter will swiftly climb up to 1000 feet.
At cruising height, you will be able to see all the local landmarks spread out below as you have never seen them before.
During the journey, the helicopter will cover around twelve miles. Passengers will have plenty of opportunities to take pictures so that you can relive the experience again and again.
In November and December, guests will be offered mulled wine and mince pies as part of the Big Deal. In January, guests will be offered a glass of bubbly.
Some of the most spectacular flying days are undoubtedly during the autumn and winter seasons.
The next few weeks are all about leaf-peeping or seeing the leaves changing colour.
In the depth of winter, morning flights can capture beautiful views of white frosts or even a full covering of snow. Ground mist in the valleys and over rivers is also a delightful sight.
There is usually less air pollution during the colder months so visibility is typically far superior.
Upgrade to co-pilot
The offer is for a rear seat in the cabin but, for an extra £15, there is the option to upgrade to the co-pilot experience and sit with the pilot in the cockpit.
Of course, a full safety briefing and public liability insurance are included in the deal.
With a minimum passenger age of six (under twelves must be accompanied by an adult), this offer would make a brilliant gift for any budding fly boy.
Not that you need to be ‘copter daft to enjoy this offer. The breath-taking panoramas will make this a memorable experience for anyone who wants a bird’s eye view of their local area.
With vouchers valid until the beginning of March, this offer would make a fantastic Christmas present.
It would also be perfect for birthdays, corporate incentives, days out with the family or even as a very alternative date.
