A city or coastline looks very different from 1000 feet up. We’ve all stared out fascinated from our passenger airline seats as built-up areas merge with the patchwork patterns of fields, just before the cloud cover obscures everything.
Today’s Big Deal offers an opportunity to savour this bird’s eye perspective in a more relaxed way with a City & Coasts Helicopter flight for two from Adventure 001.
This Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a city & coastal helicopter tour with a flight time of approximately fifteen minutes.
Choose a location to suit you. The tours available include the Bass Rock and Firth of Forth Tour; the Ayr Coastal Tour; Glasgow City Tour; Perth City Tour; Stirling City Tour and the Newcastle City Tour.
Flights leave from a variety of conveniently located airfields and helipads: East Fortune Airfield near Edinburgh; Glasgow Prestwick Airport; Inchinnan Helipad by Bishopton; Perth Airport; Stirling Helipad and Hedley West Farm near Newcastle.
Aircraft enthusiasts will be keen to know the details. Passengers will be flying in a Bell 206 Jet Ranger (or its equivalent). After hovering just above ground, your helicopter will swiftly climb up to 1000 feet. From your cruising height, you will be able to pick out the area landmarks from your unique perspective.
The tour allows plenty of opportunities for pictures.
Upgrade to co-pilot
The offer is for a rear seat in the cabin but, for an extra £20, 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.
This Big Deal tour with Adventure 001 is the ideal outing for aircraft fanatics, children included. The minimum passenger age is six, and all under-twelves must be accompanied by an adult. It’s the perfect family treat.
Not that you have to be a helicopter nerd to appreciate this offer. The spectacular views offered from your vantage point in the skies will make this one of the most memorable 15 minutes you have experienced.
We expect an upsurge in applications for ‘eye in the sky’ traffic reporters and air-sea rescue operatives after this deal.
