Regrettably, we are still some way off from the happy day when we’re all scooting around using jetpacks.
Get a bird’s eye view of what that might look like with today’s Big Deal on a helicopter flight from Adventure 001.
This sky high Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a scenic helicopter tour of the local area with a flight time of approximately five minutes.
Guests will be offered a glass of bubbly – what better way to toast your flight?
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.
Reach for the skies
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 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 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 unique view of their local area.
It would also be perfect for birthdays, corporate incentives or days out with the family.
This offer could also be used for a very alternative date:
‘Where did you meet?’
‘At about 1000 feet above Glasgow in a helicopter.’
