Overview

We have over 25 years experience of flying guests in our helicopters across North Yorkshire and further afield. Operating from our base at Sherburn Airfield, we are within a very short flying distance of some majestic views including York Minster, The North Yorkshire Moors National Park, The Yorkshire Coastline, The Yorkshire Dales and other landmarks such as some of the beautiful country houses and Abbeys of this area. Our Robinson helicopters offer a panoramic view from below waist level to the roof. Your flight will take place either from the co-pilots seat or the two rear seats. This means that everyone has a great view, with the rears seats facing forwards in a similar arrangement to a family car, with great views all around. Family bookings are a great way to enjoy a view of Yorkshire from the air and we can accommodate three people at a time in our helicopters. If you're wondering what it's like to pilot a helicopter, you can even book a trial flight and take the controls of our Robinson helicopters alongside our professional instructor pilots.
