Need to add a shot of adrenaline to your life? Putting some of your recyclables in the wrong bin not getting your heart pumping these days? Try this helicopter buzz ride to get your juices flowing.

There’s nothing like shooting straight up in the air to add some manic excitement to your life. And if there’s fast moving whirring blades involved as well, all the better. And a man in headphones who’ll probably be wearing sunglasses? Sign me up.

In this exhilarating experience, you’ll have five minutes in a airborne helicopter. On arrival at the airfield or helipad, you’ll be given a brief safety briefing, pointing out why you shouldn’t suddenly grab the controls ‘for a laugh’. Then you’ll be led to the craft. If you wish to recreate your favourite film/helicopter moments, like from Apocalypse Now, this would be a good time.

Then it’s straight up and no bother as you accelerate into the clouds. The pilot will take you on a mini-thrill ride, showing you the versatility and power of your new heli-friend. See salient landmarks, go over fields, hover near some stuff. You can run the full gamut with this one. After your experience, your thrills will be seeked, your heart will be pumped and I imagine your hairstyle will be slightly askew.

Get a quick fix of adventure and be the envy of your earthbound pals as you take an exciting five minute helicopter ride.
What happens on the day?
When you get to helicopter central, you will meet your pilot (call them Ace, they love that) and receive a brief technical and safety briefing - then it’s up, up and away as you accelerate vertically into the skies and beyond (you will not go beyond the skies). Your pilot will put the helicopter through its paces to show you just how versatile these incredible bladed machines really are. Watch the world pass beneath you before coming into land after a five minute adrenaline rush that is sure to be the envy of all your friends! ....
