With only a matter of weeks left until Christmas, avoid the packed high street, the avid shoppers with their laden carrier bags and those awful Christmas queues that so many of us try to avoid and book something with pizzazz, originality and flair this festive period with one of the helicopter tours available from Helicopterdays, an Atlas Helicopters Company.
Leagues cheaper than many of the London helicopter flights available online, Atlas are able to offer this unique experience at an astonishing £125 per person or a discounted £600 for chartering the whole helicopter. The Atlas Portsmouth Helicopter Tours start at just £45 per person. With the recent addition of an Isle of Wight Tour, Helicopterdays has a tour to suit most tastes.
Chief Executive and pilot at Helicopterdays, Mike Burns, said, “The views over London, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight are breathtaking, and we pride ourselves on offering our customers an unforgettable experience. Whenever I take someone up they are literally in awe and cannot believe the fantastic visibility from a helicopter compared to any experience they may have had in an aeroplane. We get people who have been up in a helicopter before purchasing our flights, as well as those who have never been up before and have always had it on their wish-list.”
Departing from Redhill Aerodrome near Crawley and a site near to the Dartford Bridge, the London helicopter flights take in the spectacular historic sites of Tower Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral, The houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace to panoramic views of Canary Wharf and the Millennium Dome (O2 Arena). The Portsmouth Helicopter Tours and Isle of Wight Helicopter Tours currently operate from Lee-on-Solent Airfield.
The London helicopter flights, Portsmouth helicopter flights and Isle of Wight Helicopter Flights are hugely popular and it isn’t hard to see why. When you take to the skies with the experts at Helicopterdays, life-long ambitions are realised and smiles are sure to be brought to the faces of your nearest and dearest. Whether you are booking a flight as part of a romantic weekend away romantic or a surprise treat for the helicopter enthusiast - the full commentary given by the captain at 1000 feet will only work to enhance your experience after taking to the skies.
The Bell LongRanger helicopter used for the tours offers exceptional visibility and by allowing passengers to be seated on both sides of the helicopter, means that they can enjoy the same spectacle while taking aerial shots of famous sites.
What’s more, vouchers purchased will now last for an extended period of nine months as opposed to their usual six month validation period making it even easier to give your loved ones a gift that will fit around their busy schedules.
Following the natural route of the Thames, this unique London Helicopter Tour experience lasts around 30 minutes. Atlas Helicopters operate the London Helicopter Tour on selected weekends throughout the year so passengers are asked to pre-book the time and date of their flight to avoid disappointment.
