Come Fly with me – Scenic Helicopter Tours of Brighton

If you’ve had enough of Brighton from the ground and fancy a new perspective, try a helicopter flight over the top of it! A wide range of flights over Brighton, its beautiful surrounding countryside and historical sights are available. The tours fly every day of the week in a Robinson R44 helicopter which seats up to 3 passengers for a private ride.
Where can I go?
Which places mean the most to you? You decide where you want to fly over. Your party of up to 3 passengers have private use of the helicopter allowing the company to modify trips to take in sights of significance to you. Prices start at £285 for a 20 minute tour, or £327 for a 30 minute tour.
There are also afternoon teas, lunches and dinners available to break up the flights, although it’s unlikely you’ll be bored! These take place at various grand houses including South Lodge, Buxted Park and Bailiffscourt Hotel & Spa.
All the dining experiences commence from Shoreham airport and take place at hotels in the countryside surrounding Brighton. The afternoon tea experience include a choice of tea, coffee or chocolate followed by sandwiches, cakes and scones. There will be transfers to and from Shoreham airport and optional champagne on board the helicopter.
If you’d like to push the boat out even further you might take a cherished friend or spouse away for the night and have dinner included. You can enquire about a dining or hotel package here.
For those of us concerned about prices, there are a range of short, 1 seat flights available from £45 – £110, starting at five minutes. These take place on selected days from April to November – they do not guarantee a private ride.
What People Thought
“What an amazing experience! My husband, 6 year old and I absolutely loved our tour and wouldn’t think twice about recommending this to anyone that wants to try something different for a special occasion, or just for a treat. Brilliant!”
“I bought a flying lesson for my partner (with me as a passenger) and we had a great time! John was brilliant and it was the best present I’ve ever bought – smiles all round! Problem now is that he wants more lessons”
“John was fabulous! He picked my mum and dad up from a private field where we were having a party for their ruby anniversary and tools them to South Lodge for the night. They said it was the best day of their lives”
