The York Experience Flight

Gift Experience

About This Experience...

If you’re looking for a new way to sightsee, look no further than this superb Helicopter Sightseeing Tour of York – an ideal experience gift for any adrenaline-junkie or just a great way to explore this historic city!

Your experience will begin at our base at Sherburn Airfield, Sherburn-in-Elmet, where you will meet your expert pilot and, after a safety briefing, will climb aboard your helicopter along with your guests.

As soon as you begin the exhilarating vertical ascent you will understand why flying by helicopter is seen as the most glamorous and exciting way to travel – there really is nothing else like it! You will fly over Selby Abbey via Bishops Wood and will be able to admire breath-taking views from your vantage point. You’ll then head to the beautiful and ancient city of York where you will hover over all the sights including The Walls, The Ouse and The magnificent York Minster, Clifford’s Tower, York City Walls, The ‘Knavesmire’ Racecourse and Bishopthorpe Palace.

At a height of about 1,500 feet you will be able to enjoy a wonderful bird’s eye view of the city and all its splendour. Afterwards you’ll head west to another famous Roman Settlement, Tadcaster; keep your eyes peeled for the three breweries located here – and if you’re lucky you might even be able to smell the hops! The last leg will take you over Wetherby Racecourse before flying along the Great North Road back to our base.

Don’t forget your camera, because this is an experience you will want to remember forever!

If you’d prefer to depart from our base at Leeds Bradford, simply chat to our team when you call to book in your experience date. Due to increase landing and handling charges at Leeds Bradford there would be an additional fee.
