What happens on the day?

During WWII, deep in the depths of Derbyshire, the Lancaster crews of 617 Squadron were in training. The Derwent valley of their homeland became for all intents and purposes the Ruhr Valley in Germany as they prepared for a top secret mission. Seated in a unique Bell 206 Jet Ranger helicopter, relive their daring raid (in Derbyshire, not Germany) as you soar over green pastures and deep reservoirs. Ideal for lovers of beautiful countryside, history and helicopters.

Your flight will last for an exhilarating 30 minutes (approx.), during which time you will have the chance to take in all areas of interest along the way. Take in the beautiful Peak District as you head to the Derwent Valley, the training ground for the RAF during World War II. Cameras are a must on this tour as there is just so much to see!
