Booked a 30 minute trial flight for partner who is hard to buy for. Had previously been due to fly before Christmas but weather was not good so re-arranged with no fuss, Staff were friendly and informative and the lesson went really well even though it was quite a gloomy day - got to be in control and learn to hover and maneuver.

We where greeted with a warm welcome and a a drink , of hot chocolate which was really nice has it was a mixed weather day,we thought we would not be able to have our flight,, but so glad that we where wrong .It was lovely seeing all the helicopter's and being so close to them,The Pilot Peter was very pleasant and professional ,and soon we where at ease . The flight over Beaver Castle was amazing and the views where just brilliant and we will treasure the sights we viewed,Took loads of photos and video's of the day. The highlight was my husband flew the helicopter which was something he never dreamed he would do. JUST ONE BRILLIANT HOUR WE WILL NEVER FORGET MAY BE ONE DAY GO BACK AND DO IT AGAIN

Was bought a helicopter trial lesson for my birthday. Booked no problem and extended the experience on the morning of my flight to include my partner as a surprise for her (needed a change of aircraft, but this was also no problem). Very professional staff, but also very relaxed and friendly. Absolutely mind blowing experience - totally loved it and would sooooo recommend everyone to try it. John and Ali.
