Devon’s Jurassic Coast is one of Britain's most spectacular and beautiful coastal areas, so what better way to explore its sights than with a fantastic helicopter sightseeing tour? You are guaranteed to love this unforgettable helicopter pleasure flight over the Devon coast; exploring this remarkable area on foot is memorable enough, but seeing it from this unique vantage point is an especially exceptional experience – and one that you will remember forever!

During this thrilling activity you will enjoy a 20 minute scenic flight, following the River Sid along to Sidmouth and then flying low-level alongside the famous cliffs of the Jurassic Coast, before moving on to Budleigh Salterton for panoramic views, and then over Exmouth and Ottery St Mary. This incredible helicopter tour is quite simply the best way to see South Devon in all its natural splendour … you really can’t beat the exhilaration of viewing this dramatic area of coastline from a bird’s eye view, hovering thousands of feet up in the sky.

On arrival at Heathfield Farm in Exeter, you will check-in with the ground crew and receive a full safety briefing. You’ll then board a helicopter flown by an experienced commercial pilot, where you’ll experience the amazing power of a chopper as you fly over the 34 mile circuit before enjoying a spectacular sightseeing tour along the stunning South Devon coastline. After flying over Honiton you will follow the River Sid to Sidmouth and then fly low-level alongside the remarkable red cliffs, which form the majestic beginning of the Jurassic Coast. You’ll then soar on to Budleigh Salperton for panoramic views over Exmouth, before following the picturesque Otter River to Ottery St Mary. There will be plenty of opportunities to take photos from the helicopter while you’re in the air, so don’t forget your camera!

A Birthday present from my son & daughter in law. Something I would never have thought I could do, considering I don't like heights, but what a wonderful experience it was, and felt very confident and proud that I had finally flown in a helicopter - and would certainly do again !
