I visited on the 14th may 2016 with the rest of my family which bought this experience as a Christmas present. I throughly enjoyed it worth every penny they spent on me. I couldn't fault any part of it.

i was bought a helicopter flight by my daughter for christmas, booked no problems and it was awsome!!! I would recommend to anyone, the young instructor was informative and very pleasant. I haven't had that much fun since I did a parachute jump!
This was my second visit here with a few years between them. Today I took a friend there for a trial lesson. The staff were really friendly and helpful (with an added sense of humour, luckily!) Everything was explained in an understandable way and you...More
Having never even been in a helicopter before, I didn't to know what to expect. It was an amazing experience - far better than I had imagined. Nick (the pilot) was very knowledgeable and was able to answer our (many) questions professionally, he gave clear,...More

Thanks for your question. We are quite flexible in what can be done on the 2 options and will try to customise the experience to allow the customer to get what they want out of it. Some customers only want to have a quick go on the controls and fly over somewhere they know (if he wants to fly over Melton Mowbray I would recommend an hour, 30 minutes wouldn't allow for much time near Melton Mowbray before having to turn back), whereas others want to have as much of a go on the controls as possible. It really depends on what he would like out of the experience. If you think he would be interested in taking the controls for a fair amount of time, the hour obviously allows us a lot more time and it wouldn't feel as rushed, but if it's just the experience of being in a helicopter, 30 minutes might be more suitable. Having said that I don't think anyone has got bored flying a helicopter for an hour!
I hope this helps.
