Celebrating Brighton's reputation for kiss-me-quick hats, saucy postcards and dirty weekends, the Brighton Quickie offers a personalized 20 minute flight experience round Brighton and Hove for up to 3 passengers in a modern Robinson R44 helicopter. This helicopter tour can be booked for any day of the week and your party will have sole use of the helicopter. This ensures that the lead member of the party gets the best seat next to the pilot, as well as being able to offer tweaks to the itinerary should there be specific things you want to see within the 20 minute flight time.
What You'll Get
Brighton City (Shoreham) Airport is an excellent airfield to start a scenic helicopter flight. The recently refurbished Main Terminal Building is an art deco treasure and takes visitors back to an era where flying was the height of sophistication. The views over the airfield are a photographers dream with the light aircraft in the foreground and the stunning backdrop of Lancing College's ornate chapel and rolling South Downs in the background.
After a short safety briefing your pilot will assist you in boarding the helicopter. On leaving the airfield the tour initially routes eastbound along the coastline taking in Shoreham-by-Sea's port area before reaching the residential areas of Hove and then Brighton. Your pilot will point out many of the iconic sights including Brighton Pier, the Royal Pavilion and The Grand Hotel.
On reaching Brighton Marina the tour turns inland away from the white chalk cliffs & Roedean School and crosses the rolling green countryside of the South Downs. The Amex Community Stadium (home to Brighton & Hove Football Club) and Sussex University mark the turning point to head west back towards Brighton City (Shoreham) Airport.
The approach to the airfield allows an excellent aerial view of the chapel at Lancing College before the helicopter hover taxys back to the hangar.
