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!

Jurassic Coast Sightseeing Helicopter Tour

Change of location from original acknowledgement made site difficult to find . No photo I'd asked for, or paperwork accepted for filing on arrival. Flight day message gave an earlier time of 13.30, on arrival this changed to 14.30. Our 14.30 seats were offered to another couple who acknowledged our name but this was remedied when I questioned ground staff. All staff very courteous and friendly, the flight was very enjoyable. Would recommend for security that photo I'd is required. Thank you for a lovely experience on the day.

expert-interview-with-heli-adventures


We have always had a close relationship with Heli Adventures, and this week we had the privilege of interviewing Gemma Heynes on all things airborne. For a first-hand insight into the world of helicopter flying, read on…


Q1. Hi Gemma! So to kick things off, how was HeliAdventures founded?

HeliAdventures provides helicopter tours from a plethora of locations and is part of a long established Helicopter Company based at Cotswold Airport in Gloucestershire. Further services from this multifaceted company include helicopter charters and professional helicopter training.


HeliAdventures was started out of the passion of two pilots who wanted to be able to share their passion and make available to others the experience of helicopter flights. The cost of helicopters make it prohibitively expensive to many, but by setting up HeliAdventures and selling sightseeing tours by the seat we hoped to open up the opportunity to many others to enjoy.


Q2. How do you think HeliAdventures stands out from other helicopter companies?

Not only do we operate all our own events, we always use our own pilots, our own helicopters and operate under our own Air Operators Certificate (AOC), allowing us to provide seamless customer service throughout the booking process and the experience itself. Unlike a majority of UK sightseeing flight operators, we use immaculately presented Airbus Helicopters AS350 aircraft which provides great visibility for all passengers in a much more modern and spacious cabin compared with the Jet Ranger used by most others. Our pilots are very familiar with the specific areas within which our range of helicopter flights and tours are conducted, and they have worked to put together routes that will give you the very best in excitement and spectacle.

Q3. What is your favourite part of running HeliAdventures?

Seeing the joy on customers faces after their flight when, in many cases, they have just realised a life long dream.


Q4. Tell us more about your story and HeliAdventures' success..

HeliAdventures has grown over the years to become one of the largest UK pleasure flight operators to cover multiple locations throughout the South West and Midlands. Keep an eye out ...more of the UK to be added soon! As well as this our training division has been able to satisfy the dreams of many people of becoming a pilot whose initial introduction to helicopters was a pleasure flight with HeliAdventures.


We flew 450 sightseeing tour in 2015, which equates to more than 2,000 passengers and of those 2,000 passengers over 90% rate us 4-5 out of 5 and say they would recommend us to others. We are aiming for 100% in 2016!


13938100_1494999967192459_6763720037374508972_o 


Q5. If you could tell every customer one thing, what would you share with them?

" YOLO " .... so make the most of it. Come and have fun with us!


Q6. Is there anything else you'd like to add/ mention?

If there is anything you want to know about helicopters do ask – we love talking helicopters!


Huge thanks to Gemma for chatting with us, we hope you’ve enjoyed a little insight into Heli and it’s team! Helicopter rides are great ways to see the ground beneath you from great heights, and there are plenty of locations across the country so everyone can have the perfect experience. Enjoy!
