Helicopter tours show you Gloucestershire through new eyes

Imagine getting up one day, forgetting work day routines, and enjoying a luxury helicopter tour of Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds or other parts of the region. With Rise Helicopters, luxury helicopter sightseeing isn’t just an idle dream but an achievable possibility.
Flying from our conveniently-located Gloucestershire Airport, Staverton base, our helicopter tours are carefully planned to give you an amazing experience. You’ll feel like Royalty as, instead of facing another humdrum day, you head for Gloucestershire Airport and meet your pilot. Outside on the apron, your helicopter awaits (we currently use two types of helicopters for tours: Robinson R44s or executive Bell JetRangers).

The excitement mounts as you approach the aircraft, strap-in and prepare for take-off. Soon, after pre-flight checks and radio communication with the tower, the rotors are a blur and you lift off into a low hover. Then the airport boundary drops away and you’re climbing out over Golden Valley’s traffic queues. Your helicopter tour is underway…
