What You'll Get
A full throttle chopper will scythe powerfully through the air during a flight with Hields Aviation. Following a safety briefing, the helicopter will take off, affording unique views of the Yorkshire landscape as it traverses six miles in six minutes. Alternatively, a half-hour flight simulator will provide an opportunity to take to the controls of a Bell Jetranger over a range of virtual locations. An initial briefing from an instructor will cover the basics of flying techniques, before the copter is piloted over Chicago, New York or London, with challenges such as night flying and adverse weather thrown in.
Choose from the following options:
£29 for a helicopter flight
£59 for a simulator experience
Based at Sherburn Airfield, 15 miles of Leeds, Hields Aviation first took flight in 1989. Both the casual and hardcore helicopter enthusiast are now catered for, with training for flying licenses sitting alongside sightseeing tours and aerial photography. The simulator gives tastes of controlled piloting action, while flights can be chartered for corporate days, sporting events, and weddings.
