If you do not have either a mobile number or email address, you will need to provide these details even if it belongs to a close friend or relative. Unfortunately you can not complete a booking without this information.
There is a specific date that I would like to fly, is it available?
All the dates that we have available are shown on our availability calendar. The dates shown in green are the dates with spaces left. You will need to select your chosen location and type of flight in order to see the specific dates that apply.
Do you have disabled access / support?
Due to the nature of these flights, please do
contact us to discuss any specific concerns you may have.
There are between 2 and 3 crew members on the day to assist passengers on and off of the helicopter. The helicopter is in a ‘high-skid’ design meaning it is a fair distance off the ground. There is a built in step and we can provide an additional small step from the ground to make boarding easier if you wish. Unfortunately there is no ramp or smaller steps that we are able to safely attach to the aircraft for passengers to use.
