When Team Big Deal was still in short trousers, we were told that by the time we were all grown up that we would be riding around using jet packs.
Well, the jetpacks have yet to become mainstream but today’s Big Deal with Adventure 001 offers the next best thing: amazing helicopter flights from three easy to reach Scottish locations.
With vouchers valid from 15th March to 15th November 2013, this offer would be great for a Christmas or birthday present or simply as an unforgettable way to spend a day.
Taking off from North Lanarkshire, East Fortune or Perth Airport, passengers will reach for the skies 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, passengers will cover around six miles and have plenty of opportunities to take pictures so that you can relive the experience again and again.
Spectators are welcome to watch the take-off and landing.
Upgrade to co-pilot
The offer is for a rear seat in the cabin but, for an extra £10, 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 Christmas 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.
