The Go West helicopter tour does what it says! The tour leaves Shoreham and heads north then west to take in the South Downs and Chanctonbury ring. After seeing Amberley Castle the tour follows the river Arun to view the stunning castle and cathedral in Arundel. The flight reaches the coast between Littlehampton and Bognor Regis and turns back east towards the airfield taking in Littlehampton and Worthing en-route. This flight costs £350 for up to three passengers in the single engine R44 helicopter.
Unlike our helicopter experience flights the Go West can be taken any day of the week subject to weather and machine/pilot availability. Weight limits apply.
Shoreham Airfield is arguably the best airfield in the UK to start a scenic pleasure flight. The stunning views of the coastline, the piers on the Brighton seafront, the white cliffs, the rolling Sussex Downs - all make Shoreham Airfield head and shoulders above many other isolated, windswept airfields in the UK.
And your experience is not over once your helicopter lands! Shoreham Airport's 1930's art deco main terminal building takes you back to the days when flying was the height of sophistication and is home to the excellent Hummingbird cafe. If you want a special meal then there are various fine restaurants in Shoreham-by-Sea (a 10 minute walk from the airfield).
Cameras can be used on board, but remember to take time to experience the flight and not spend all your time looking at your phone screen or viewfinder. At the end of the flight there's a small momento to take away to remind you of this unforgettable aerial treat!
for up to 3 passengers.
PLEASE NOTE: When booking a tour you are booking the helicopter for your own private use (not just a seat on a flight with others). If your party does not fill the aircraft the cost of the tour does not change as it is based on the running cost of the helicopter, not the number of seats occupied.
