Average rating: 5 stars out of 5
When my son wanted to know what I wanted for my 60th Birthday, my wife remembered I had always wanted a helicopter flight. My son then found this flight over an area that I hold dear as Swanage is a place I have been connected to because my parents had a caravan there for many years and I spent most of my young summers there. To fly over Swanage, Corfe Castle and the whole area taking photographs really made my Birthday special. When we landed I really wanted to go again, maybe one day.
This is a great experience .....but. it can depend on which side of the helicopter you sit. As you don't come back the scenic way. I was on the left side and so it wasn't easy to get the lovely views of the beach and brownsea my main view to Corfe was the sea! The trip should come back the same way then I would have enjoyed it so so much more. The return from Corfe was just over town not good. So only give this a 3 out of 5.
I was lucky enough to choose a day for this experience when the weather was perfect for such an occasion. Very helpful ground crew and a friendly very engaging Pilot, Andy, all made the experience a truly amazing time.
Thoroughly recommend it! My children bought this as my birthday present and I got a ticket for my wife to share the experience. Staff were great, the team on the ground were well organised and made sure we were in the right place at the right time and the pilot, Andy?, was first class, made us feel at ease and chatted, providing bits of information as we went. The flight was awesome, loved the scenery, weather was perfect, want to go again! Big thanks to all from my wife and I.
great experiance weather ok brad the pilot took his time so we could get a good view of all the coast line and corfe castle ground crew very helpful good time had by all
Superb flight, weather awful all week but Sunday 14th valentines day the weather was bright and clear, the pilot was interesting to listen to and he banked round to the right then to the left so all of us in the back could get the same photos, a great half an hour flight, cheers. Thank You.
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!
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!
