12 Mile Helicopter Pleasure Flight for Two in Dorset
People really like this Experience located handily in Templecombe, Somerset.
It’s hard to beat the sensation of hovering above the ground in a powerful, fast-moving helicopter – it’s the way the rich and famous like to travel and it’s the best way to see the sensational sights of the beautiful British landscape. On this 12 mile pleasure flight, rise to around 1000 feet and take in the breathtaking bird’s-eye views while the pilot points out local landmarks along the way. Bring along a camera to capture some impressive imagery to show friends and family and re-live the experience when you’re back on solid ground!
