Six Mile Helicopter Buzz Flight for 1 person for £27 @ Red letter days

26
Posted 6th Nov

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

There's 11 different locations around the UK for this one and it's valid for 10 months, so might be a good one to keep for a clear, sunny day next year ( ) There must be one in the next 10 months right?

The page say it's 1 hour duration under the heading. So for £27 with the DEAL15 code that's going around it seems like a steal to me. May be a good xmas present if local to you.

don't knock it indoor skydiving costs a lot more for 2 x 1 minute flights
Thanks @tommytbone1 I've ordered for myself and the husband, hopefully we'll be able to get a date close to our anniversary

No, it says it's for an hour
I have done the 6 mile buzz flight before. Yes the experience is around an hour , by the time you have to be there early, then wait around . The time your in the air is about 10 minutes.

of course and after the ride the helicopter is yours to use for the rest of the day..........
If it was transport to a destination and I wasnt paying for it then ok.
I use Google Earth for looking down at whats below, it probably is a very good price but cant see the point of it.

The web site actually states the flying time;
Expect to be at the venue for about one hour, including a safety briefing and a flight time of five minutes.

Do celebrities who use helicopters as transport have to do a 55min preflight and after briefing every trip or is this included here just to pad it out a bit, LOL.

Normally pilots spent typical 45-60min preflight inspection. If the celebrities are pilot, yes.
I agree a 5-10 flight time is a short amount of time, but i'm not sure how much we should expect for £27?
This has got to be the cheapest cost for a Helicopter experience that you can buy, and thats what we're here to find isn't it?

Still, i'll probably just wait until it's windy, open the window and get my kicks on GTA V. At least i'll be able to fly into a building and jump out with parachute one at the end.

5 mins flight means 55 mins without fearing it falling out of the sky.

5mins is enough for me. My friend took me up in his plane in Bordeaux and I hated every second of it thinking it would crash. Turbulence was horrific.
Did a 12 mile one and it only lasts a couple minutes.

It's just to pad it out. Got a chance to go offshore years ago to an oil rig; 1.5 hr flight. Not sure if there was even a 5 minute briefing before the flight left. Key thing for a helicopter flight is keep your head down when entering and leaving the helicoptor as allot of dust etc will be whipped up.
What's the after briefing?
