Had a great day out at heliadventures from Bournemouth Airport on sunday 29th April When i booked in all the staff were friendly and informative. We were due to fly at but we had a problem with cloud cover, however the staff kept us informed all the time there was a short delay about half an hour eventually we set off with 5 of us in the helicopter. The pilot was very informative and had good knowledge of the Dorset area.

Helicopter ride Dorset

Had a Helicopter ride on Sunday although we had a slight delay due to weather the staff were excellent in informing us as to when we could fly. When aboard the pilot was very informative on the area we flew over. Great experience! Would recommend to my friends as a great flight over Dorset.

- Bournemouth
Great experience

Really great fun would definitely recommend it to others. All staff were really friendly and a special thanks to our pilot Andy.

- South Coast

Everything was absolutely amazing, from the time we were met at the site by Brenna to when we landed back at base after our ride. My partner had arranged for me to have the best seat (in the front next to Andy!) and the views from "up there in the clouds" were magnificent...Andy was very informative and entertaining and was happy to answer all my questions - all the other passengers (including my Les who can talk for England!) were either dumbstruck or just couldn't get a word In edgeways because when I could find the right "talk" mode on my microphone, I didn't stop! All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my flight and the photo idea was really nice, especially as I was celebrating the BIG 50. Thank you to all the "ground crew" and, of course, to Andy, who made the flight enjoyable and certainly something I would do again, Jane

H/copter sightseeing tour



I bought this experience for my husband as a Christmas present. He LOVED it! Very organised and efficient outfit. The views simply stunning of Poole and surrounding area. Excellent value and would thoroughly recommend to others.


It is a wonderful experience. However due to the weather the activity was postponed, then I would recommend having another plan in case you buy this tour for a birthday celebration.


Very well organised. Would recommend.


Highly recomended awsome experience

Portsmouth Helicopter Tour

We had a Great day, very professional, how did you make the weather perfect as well!?.. will be booking again!

Helicopter Days

Helicopter trip over Portsmouth on 20/09/2015 was fantastic. Ten Minute trip was enough to see the sights. Weather was perfect and the whole operation from check in to return landing very efficient.

- Lee on The Solent

Excellent flight and friendly pilot and ground crew. The paperwork needs to be sorted as I got two different phone numbers and postcodes. I rang the number after 7.30 to hear that everything was running to time only to turn up and find that it was put back an hour. It was no problem as I just went to the beach!

- London
Helicopter ride

As so often with such experiences it depends on the provider, and in the case of my wife and I as a treat from our children we were very lucky. The provider proved excellent, kindly helpful and informative making the whole experience so good it is now our ultimate way to travel. We even managed a picture of my wife's childhood home (where her Mother still lives) from the air. A great day out.

review of trip

Wonderful trip, gave us a really good sense of the geography and diversity of the island. Would have been good to have more commentary but as the was the pilot that is understandable!

Bournemouth Helicopter Sightseeing Tour

This was an excellent trip. On the day the weather was perfect which made the trip great for photography. It is well worth paying the ground handler the small supplement to guarantee the front seat by the pilot where you get the best visibility.

- Poole

As you know, my internet booking went wrong and took much fixing but once it was fixed I was delighted with the helicopter flight. The weather was perfect and the pilot very friendly. I paid a small supplement to guarantee the front seat which was money well spent as the view was terrific. Overall an excellent time was had.

Heli flight

It was everything I imagined. The meet and greet through to the pilot were great. The only thing missing was the sunshine! Thoroughly enjoyable.

- Bournemouth

Brilliant experience, my Dad really enjoyed it, thanks!


Really pleased with flight, always wanted to fly in a helicopter and flight with heliadventures didn't disappoint. I will definitely be recommending your company.


brilliant experience defo will do it again.... It was a really hot day so would have been good to have been able to purchase a drink while waiting around .


Everyone at the site were lovely,would definately recommend!The helicopter was all is great working order apart from the window/door started flapping when in the air, bit worrying but the pilot explained it was fine-nothing to worry about. The pilot didnt explain what we were seeing which i thought was a shame-but luckily we knew what we were looking t as we live where we did our tour.


Great day, perfect weather, staff very friendly and informative. site great. Pilot friendly. Would recommend doing this tour.


This was a brilliant experience - the staff were very friendly and welcoming.Have wanted to fly in a helicopter for years and it is something I will always remember. Views were stunning.
