People love helicopter joy rides. Scenic flights in our executive Bell 206 Jet Rangers add a stunning highlight, and extra profit, to your event.
We manage every helicopter ride professionally. Passengers take off from your site for a thrilling flight lasting about five minutes and covering around 10 miles. Each flight carries up to four passengers (perfect for families or groups) – and children get a Rise Helicopters badge.
Flights operate on an adult and child fare basis with OAP and disabled passenger concessions. We pay a pre-agreed commission per fare and give you a free helicopter ride for up to four people during the day. We can also help with requirements such as flying-in celebrities.
We’ll need a suitable obstruction-free area about 275m x 30m wide for the approach and departure of the helicopter, within which we’ll rope off a 100m x 30m landing pad. We’ll also need completed Land Owner’s Permission and Emergency Services forms. Thereafter we’ll manage all the logistics.NOTE: for helicopter days we’re not allowed to overfly car parks, buildings or the show site itself when approaching or departing from the landing point. Unless the site’s already approved for charter helicopters, or we can determine its suitability from plans and maps, we’ll need to visit in advance to confirm its suitability and obtain Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approval. If possible, please provide an Ordnance Survey grid reference and a plan of the site and its surrounds.
On the day, you can relax knowing flights are in expert hands. We regularly run helicopter events: our team sets up the site, acts as safety officers and helps passengers in and out of the helicopter. In the air, our pilots will be pleased to talk about helicopter flying and point out landmarks. All our team are friendly and approachable so your passengers will feel at ease as they enjoy their flight.Naturally, our crews are trained in Fire & Rescue and First Aid, and we meet CAA requirements for emergency and safety equipment. We also carry full public transport insurance.
We pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive helicopter day with helicopter rides, which will prove a real asset to your event. Please [contact us] to discuss your requirements, or find out more [here]
