When I book a Sightseeing Tour of e.g. 30 minutes will it last 30 minutes?

Yes!

Most operators start to calculate the flight time from start up the engine until shut down the engine. (Called block-time)

This takes on avarage around 10 minutes so a 30 minutes tour would be effectively 20 minutes flying time.

If you book a tour with us you can be sure that the flight time is calculated from take-off until landing!

 

What about pets in the helicopter?

Pets are allowed in flight, but they should be accompanied by valid health and vaccination certificates. Throughout the duration of the flight they should be at a specially arranged place for them.

Please contact our office before the flight, in case you plan to have your pet with you.
