What if the weather is bad?

We don’t fly unless we are confident that you will get the full experience you pay for. With it being the Isle of Man, there’s no guarantees with the weather but we will ensure to plan accordingly and reschedule if necessary. Sometimes we may alter the route slightly due to unforeseen weather conditions.

What is the minimum age for passengers?

We usually recommend 5 years and above but that is mainly for the headset sizing so that all passengers, including children, are included in the conversation and commentary during flight. If you would still like your 3/4 year old to join, our pilot would be happy to discuss arrangements in more detail and answer any specific questions. There is no legal minimum.

What is the maximum age for passengers?

There is no maximum! As long as you are able to get in and out of the helicopter safely, we are happy to take you!

Can you offer a route other than those published?

We can offer bespoke tour routes if there are any particular landmarks you would like to see.

I want to learn to fly but I’ve never even been in a helicopter before, can you still teach me?

Yes! Anyone can learn to fly – zero experience required.

Can you take me to the UK / Ireland?

Unfortunately we don’t offer trips beyond the island’s shores at the moment due to over water flights being restricted by our AOC.

What is an AOC?

Air Operator Certificate (AOC) which allows us to fly commercially (i.e. to accept money for flights). The AOC is issued and governed by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

I want to fly alone as my companion is afraid of flying, is that possible?

Absolutely! However for tours, our pricing structure is based on a minimum of 2 passengers and we can’t offer single passenger fares. You could always consider a trial lesson as an alternative option.

What is your availability?

We offer flights 7 days a week and will try our best to work around your request. However, we don’t offer flights beyond sunset.

Is there a weight limit?

There is a maximum seat limit of 136kg per person.

Do you offer gift vouchers?

If you don’t want to commit to a specific date and time, we offer vouchers in £50 increments or for the whole tour or trial lesson value.

I would like to hire out the helicopter for the day for a private / family function. Is that possible?

Yes. Just let us know your specific requirements and we will do our best to accommodate them.
