Helicopterdays’ Second Anniversary
We cannot believe that another year has passed since Atlas Helicopters purchased the ‘Helicopterdays‘ brand in September of 2008. Since introducing this ‘London Helicopter Tour’ specialist website into the Atlas Helicopters Group, it has gone from strength to strength almost completely ignoring the recession we are currently in!
Having just completed our 2nd year of tours from both Damyn’s Hall Airfield near Romford, Fairoaks Airport near Woking and Redhill Aerodrome near Crawleym, we have had the pleasure of flying some 2200 passengers. There have been some fascinating passengers along the way with many fantastic stories:-
A lady’s 90th birthday. It had been her life-long ambition to fly in a helicopter, although she had flown scheduled fixed-wing before;
A lady’s 80th birthday gift was a surprise helicopter flight over London.......it was the first time she had ever flown;
There have been seven wedding proposals onboard our London Tours this year ( each said ‘yes’ ).
One gentleman had never flown but his wife had surprised him with a holiday to Spain. To get over his fear of flying, he booked a London Helicopter Tour with us................He was amazed and I presume enjoyed his holiday flight to Spain!!
With Christmas only 3-months why not give your loved ones or those valued to you at work the gift of flight? Whether it is for the realization of a dream, to see enchanting landmarks from a birds-eye perspective or a unique gift for someone who has everything – London helicopter flights from Helicopterdays is the ultimate Christmas Gift.
The renowned London Helicopter Tour takes in the incredible panoramic views of the iconic London skyline, taking in Canary Wharf, the Millennium Dome (o2 Arena), Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, the London Eye, St Paul's Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace, to name but a few sites along the way.
Chief Executive and pilot at Atlas, Mike Burns, said, “The views over London are breathtaking on all of our tours, and we pride ourselves on offering our customers an unforgettable experience.”
