Safety Assured

We understand that some people are a little ‘apprehensive’ about flying in a helicopter. For most people this is a new experience. But our staff will give you a thorough briefing before departure and ensure that you are comfortable and have the opportunity to ask any questions. You will be in constant communication with the pilot and other passengers throughout the flight. Helicopters have amazing outside visibility and generally handle turbulence far better than any fixed wing plane. The views are incredible and we have not had a first time flier yet that hasn’t beamed their biggest smile when they actually get in the air. And of course our safety record goes without saying – over 30 years we have flown thousands of passengers without incident. So put any worries aside and come and join us on the adventure of a lifetime.
