- Enjoy a 5 minute buzz ride!
What happens on the day?
In less time than it takes to get served in a so called 'fast-food' joint, you can enjoy the thrill of a helicopter flight! Yes; a five-minute helicopter ride!
After a friendly hello and quick safety briefing from your pilot, it's time to jump on-board and stick on your helmet with built in ear-protection, which you'll quickly realise is essential. In no time at all, it is lift-off as your pilot takes the 'chopper into the air without the use of a runway and your journey is underway.
Don't blink as the landscape disappears below you while the pilot shows off a few tricks to give you a flavour of how versatile helicopter travel can be. Your pilot will talk you through every move, answer your questions and do their best to explain the magic of helicopter travel, as you enjoy your brief taste of a fast-growing mode of travel.
All good things come to an end, but as you descend back to base a million thoughts will go through your mind after a five-minute journey that's hard to forget. Back on solid ground, your burger and chips might just be ready.
