Although all our flight routes have estimated time, we fly the route and not the time. Our cruising speed is approx. 180 km/h and we do not “speed” or cut corners. All our pilots are trained to fly the same route and fly pass specific points of interest.

We operate Robinson R44 helicopters. The R44 can take up to 3 passengers and offers great views.

All flights are weather dependent, due to heavy fog at the coast. In case the weather conditions are not playing along for flying, we will do our best to reschedule to the next best available flight. We suggest you book your flight within the following time frames to avoid disappointment.

Summer (Oct – Apr) 10:00 – 17:00 Hours.
Winter (May – Sept) 10:00 – 16:00 Hours

Sunrise – Sunset

Each person are allowed to bring a small camera / hand bag with a weight of max of 5kg.

It can be quiet windy with the doors off so we suggest you put on a jacket / jersey before boarding the helicopter. It’s also best for people with medium to long hair to tie down their hair.
