The helicopter is a remarkable aircraft and will astound you with its versatility. The whole experience will last approximately one and a half hours.
DURATION Allow one and half hours at the airfield.
AVAILABILITY Weekdays and Weekends throughout the year although April - September would be the most enjoyable time.
