Early on Friday 31st August the sun was out, the clouds were few and the trip to Le Touquet from Redhill was going ahead.  

Out on the pads were 2 x G2’s, 1 x R22 and 1 x R44.  Once these aircraft depart with their pilots and passengers another 3 x R44’s would be wheeled out onto the pads ready to lift and the journey to France.

Valentines Flights

Our most popular tour is our most romantic tour. Arrive at Redhill Aerodrome in the heart of the Surrey countryside just 10 minutes from gatwick Airport where our friendly team will meet you. Your flight begins over lush green fields before we head north towards Central London. Flying past Epsom Race Course and in to the London Heathrow Control Zone. From Banstead and Nonsuch Park we track the A3 past Wimbledon and Richmond Park heading towards the arch of Wembley Stadium. We join the River Thames and follow this as we gently glide through the heart of England, London.

Along the route you’ll pass Chelsea Football Club, Battersea Power Station, Hyde Park, The Royal Albert Hall and the private gardens at the rear of Buckingham Palace.  We follow the River Thames all the way through the city over Vauxhall Bridge and past the Houses of Parliament, the Millennium Eye, Trafalgar Square, St Paul’s Cathedral and The Globe Theatre. On the way out of the City we pass the Financial district ‘The City’, The Tower of London, HMS Belfast and Tower Bridge.

As we turn south at the Isle of Dogs you will have a fantastic view of the whole of London. We cruise over Greenwich Park, The Royal Naval College and The Royal Observatory, nip over Croydon City Centre and back into the Surrey countryside returns and you are nearly home after one of the best experiences of your life.

If you choose to add the Olympic Extension to your Tour you’ll marvel at the massive scale of the Olympic village and take in the surrounding scenery from the air. The village encompasses a world-class Aquatics Centre and the new Stratford international station in East London. Including this in your London tour adds an extra 10 minutes to the sightseeing flight and will make it a day to remember.
