Bought the 15 minute Nottingham City tour for my dad as an 80th birthday treat. Also treated my 16yr old as wanted them to have a great memory together. Everyone was very friendly. The only downside was that the description did state that if you weren't a sports fan (which my dad isn't but my son is) you also flew... More

I visited to Central Helicopters for a local flight in a two-seater Robinson R22, but other larger aircraft are also available. The welcome was very warm and their whole approach to providing a flight experience was professional. The facilities within the HeliPort are also excellent with a wide selection of food and drinks.

Lovely half hour flight. Dambusters and derwent river. With fly over chatsworth house. Lovely weather. Friendly polite pilot and staff with it. Brill experience. We are both hooked.

When you've got a combination of a silver wedding, a 60th birthday and Valentines weekend coming up, you need something special to mark the occasion. And having checked out the reviews beforehand, I had a rough idea not only what to expect but some possible pitfalls that could end up spoiling the day. That's how we came to be here.... More

I booked this as a birthday treat for my husband! 6 people on the flight very crammed and if you wanted a good view you had to pay £50 to sit in the co pilot seat which was taken. I wanted this to be fantastic but unfortunately was disappointed and wish I had not bothered, over priced, and taken in... More

The flight over York and Emmerdale set was great as was the pilot. Pity that the weather on the day was attrocious. This did not detract too much from the experience in fact it made me appreciate how stable helicopters are in such conditions. Would recommend anyone to give it a go.

My friend sent me a voucher for a trial lesson as a "once in a lifetime experience" to celebrate my 65th birthday. I had never been up in a helicopter before so after two postponements due to weather conditions I went with feelings of both excitement and apprehension. When we arrived we were made to feel welcome. We had coffee... More

I had a one hour hands on training flight yesterday and it was superb from start to finish. Great tuition and expert guidance throughout the flight. Super friendly people who clearly and quite rightly take pride in what they do. A truly magical experience. Thank you. 😀

I visited central helicopters yesterday for a flight experience, it was fantastic! We received a very friendly welcome, everything was well organised and every member of staff I met was extremely friendly. Altogether this made it a great day and I would definitely recommend them. I will be booking again soon!
