There can be no better way to explore the spectacular sights of
South Devon’s Jurassic Coast and Lyme Regis than with this
sensational helicopter sightseeing tour, the perfect experience
gift for anyone with a head for heights!
During this adrenaline-pumping activity you will enjoy a scenic flight of approximately 30 minutes and 50 miles over one of Britain's most beautiful coastal areas as you enjoy views that truly will take your breath away. Flying in a helicopter is an experience you will never forget, and from the moment you climb aboard one of these awesome choppers, hear the exciting whirr of the blades and begin the thrilling near vertical take-off, you’ll understand why this is seen as the ultimate mode of transport. The tour will first fly you over the wonderful, gently rolling countryside of South Devon before you arrive at Lyme Regis; you will then fly along the famous cliffs of the Jurassic Coast, and follow the River Sid past Seaton, Sidmouth and then Budleigh Salterton for some more jaw-dropping panoramic views. After flying over Exmouth, you’ll then follow the picturesque Otter River to Ottery St Mary. This hugely enjoyable helicopter tour is undoubtedly the best way to see South Devon in all its stunning glory; exploring this distinctive area by foot is special enough, but seeing this dramatic area of coastline from a bird’s eye view is something else. Just don’t forget to bring your camera, as there will be plenty of chances to take pictures while you’re in the air!
This Lyme Regis and Jurassic Coast Helicopter Sightseeing Tour is an exceptional experience and one that you will remember forever – so take to the skies today and don’t look back!

25/03/18. Was a great experience. Ground crew were superb and communication about our flight, meeting times, and on the day updates were very professional. Sadly, that ended when we got into the helicopter. Pilot didn't even introduce himself or give any information throughout the flight through our headsets, which were turned off the entire flight so I couldn't even talk to my wife who was in the front seat. Maybe there was a reason for this but we were not informed. Even though the flight information did say we would be flying over the Jurassic coastline, we were a little disappointed that when we reached it we flew 1500 feet directly above it and not a little way out so we could look across and actually see the cliffs etc. That said, it was very enjoyable and a great way to view the Devon countryside.
This is probably the best experience of my life! It was beautiful seeing the stunning Jurassic coastline from the air. I thoroughly recommend this trip. And well worth paying the extra for the 30 mins flight, sitting up front with the pilot and having the professional photograph taken.
Had a good flight with informative pilot. Unfortunately our microphone headsets didn't work very well (we could hear but could not be heard) so it was difficult to ask questions, but another of the passengers did ask a lot of questions. Being on a window seat or in the co-pilot seat (much the best) is much better than being in one of the middle seats.
Absolutely fantastic, we thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone. We are hoping to have another one next year, but will try cornwall coast lineas we have done this one. Pilot was brilliant as were all the ground staff. Just a little hard to find the field but otherwise brilliant
Had a great pilot and helicopter journey today recommend both great :_)))
Well looked after. Very informative pilot- definately worth spending extra for front co-pilot seat.
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!
