Jurassic Coast Helicopter Tour Review

Thanks for a good morning experiencing something new! For improvements, I'd suggest more tour guide "talk" whilst flying - maybe more info about the helicopter and some historical details about the Jurassic Coast. Ryan

Jurassic Coast Helicopter flight

A first class and wonderful experience. This was made even better by the three members of staff at the airfield who were personable, upbeat, professional and helpful. Thank you so much for making this a special and memorable occasion for me.

Up & away ..how to enjoy a perfect summers day

On a hot summers day there is no better way to experience our beautiful Jurassic coastline than hopping on board a helicopter and soaring high above the parched and chequered landscape. Soaring high we saw the varied cliff formations and Andy gave an excellent description of what lay below. I would thoroughly recommend the experience. Very professional organisation from booking through to the end of the flight. Thank you

- Brixham

Overall excellent, the only issue I had was the meeting point location wasn't clear

Direction of the tour

Although we enjoyed the ride in the helicopter, we would have liked to have seen more of the coastal cliffs and been able to take photos of them. As our ride was at 16.30 the sun was in the west so the unride along the coast from Seaton to Sidmouth was looking into the sun and we were uphotos. The helicopter then returned via Honiton to Dunkeswell. We thought as a solution the pilot could have done the journey in reverse from west to east or he could have returned back from Sidmouth to Seaton in an easterly direction. Thank you

Jurassic Helicopter Tour

Absolutely fantastic trip. The pilot was so friendly, knowledgeable about the coast and countryside and answered any questions. Would have given a score of 5 but the airfield was a real pain to find, just a gateway in some hedgerow with no signs. That said would highly recommend this experience.

Jurassic coast Helicopter Flight

Really good experience, my flight was delayed due to bad weather but I was kept informed during the wait. Soon as the weather cleared we were away, excellent flight along the coast I could of wished for a bit of a longer flight, but nice to see the coast from a different perspective.

Heli tour

A very enjoyable experience, well received ONCE we had found the site, the markers on the road had fallen down. I think the route could be better missing out threading a way through Sidbury and finding Hartbury Hill. howver, that apart we enjoyed the trip, many thanks.


The staff were welcoming and helpful and the trip lived up to our expectations

Jurassic Coast Sightseeing Helicopter Tour

Brilliant awesome experience, one that will stay with me for a very long time.

Heli flight

Very good flight over Lyme Regis .Dunkeswell is a good airstrip to be based as has excellent viewing and café.

Jurassic Coast Helicopter

We enjoyed our flight which was very smooth and efficient. We thought the pilot might have had a bit more knowledge of the area but nevertheless it was all very enjoyable.


It would have been useful to have given the nearest postcode to the airfield for those with a SatNav. Well organised but didn't make the circuit as advertised - 'over Exmouth and back via Ottery St Mary' - instead it turned back over East Devon Golf Course and our family waiting to watch the helicopter fly over Orcombe point were disappointed too.

Jurassic Coast 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.

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 !

Great Value For Money

A great experience and would highly recommend to others. Great value for money. Only slight negative is that we had to wait a while for our flight and also the pilot didn't speak much but was friendly enough. Overall a great day and my wife, who's gift it was for loved it !


This was a birthday surprise for a family member's 60th present. We gave him a bucket list surprise that he will never forget. He was highly delighted with this experience and did not want the experience to end. He now wishes to have this experience again at a later date. Thankyou so much for making his long awaited wish come true. Excellent service, excellent experience. ********** THANKYOU Very satisfied.
