Why we love it

Give the gift of flight to the one you love at the UK’s most esteemed helicopter flight school, Elstree Helicopters. Moments away, as the helicopter flies, from the iconic London skyline, Elstree Aerodrome provides the ultimate romantic setting from which take to the skies together.

What's Included?

  • Take to the skies with a romantic 60 minute helicopter lesson with Elstree Helicopters
  • Time will be split equally between the classroom and in flight with a Robinson R44 4-seater helicopter
  • Enjoy a pre-flight briefing with an experienced helicopter pilot

Exclusive to TRULY

  • Take home complimentary DVD footage from the flight

Description

Make the ultimate romantic gesture, giving the one you love the gift of flight. Perhaps even propose overlooking the London skyline. Enjoy stunning views of the countryside, and use this once in a lifetime experience to create lifelong memories.

The experience itself will be divided between the aircraft and the classroom. The day will begin with a pre-flight safety briefing with an experienced helicopter pilot. The couple will proceed to learn about the principles of flight, and how the helicopter is controlled including start up and shut down procedures.

A member of staff will escort you to the aircraft for a photo opportunity, where you will meet your instructor and board the helicopter. After the final checks, experience the thrill of the take-off, hand-in-hand. On clear days you will be spoilt with a beautiful view of the romantic London skyline. After familiarizing yourselves with the sensations of flight, the instructor will hand over the controls. Enjoy the thrill and freedom and wow your partner as you fly the helicopter yourself. The lesson concludes with a hover challenge where guests will try to maintain the R44 in a well-controlled hover for as long as possible. Swap seats and allow your partner to challenge your hover skills.

Once landed you will be accompanied back to the Flying School where you will receive a complimentary DVD featuring your time in the helicopter – a great keepsake you can share with your friends and family, or even relive the moment you popped the question!
