If you’ve ever looked up into Gloucestershire’s skies and seen a helicopter soaring through the air, now’s your chance to be the one with the bird’s eye view over the county – when Rise Helicopters at Gloucestershire Airport hold another popular Open Day on Saturday 14 November 2009.
Just in time for an early Christmas present for yourself, or the aviation enthusiast in your life perhaps, visitors from across Gloucestershire will be given the chance to get a behind-the-scenes insight into the world of flying, with Rise Helicopters’ experienced pilots on-hand to share their experience and answer questions from budding pilots young and old.
The highlight of the day, however, will be the chance to take a five-minute flight around the local area – at a bargain £20 per person – in a magnificent Bell 206 Jet Ranger chopper. High flyers can expect the experience of a lifetime, from hearing the chatter of air traffic control and floating into the skies above Gloucestershire Airport, to peering out across nearby villages and towns with only the calming whirl of the rotablades – and plenty of ‘ohhs’ and ‘ahhhs’, no doubt, to keep you company.
Back on terra firma and visitors will be able to enjoy the views from Rise Helicopters’ fabulous balcony, looking out over the busy airfield, with plenty of refreshments available.
