We love autumn for its crisp air in the morning and its golden afternoons, from the changing colours of the trees to the leaves under the blue skies. Don’t miss this spectacle from the air, as this time of year is perfect for flying! Here are our top 5 private flights for this autumn!
🥇 Made popular by the media: The entirely electric flight of The Independent
Come aboard our zero-emission, entirely electric sightseeing flight near London! “From a height of a third of a mile, roads and railways embroider a landscape that is far from an urban sprawl: at least 90 percent of my view is filled with countryside. In fact, I can enjoy the green and pleasant land in almost silence – and the safe, knowledgeable hands of the chief flight instructor”. – Simon Calder, The Independent.
#2 Jurassic Coast Sightseeing flight
Explore Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, stretching 95 miles along southern England. Its towering white cliffs above crashing seas are unmissable and there is no better way to enjoy the view as by flying over it. The flight takes off from Bournemouth airport and lasts over one hour, which will seem to elapse in no time. You will fly over Studland bay, Swanage, (Durdle Door, Bats Head, Lulworth Cove subject to airspace restrictions) and Weymouth. On the way back along the coastline of Bournemouth you will be viewing the Isle of Wight needles.
#3 Fly over the edge of England!
Come on board and fly around Cornwall. We depart from Perranporth and fly west to Penzance from where you will have a view of Land’s End and out into the Atlantic. From here we will turn east to Camborne, Falmouth and St Austell. Finally we will fly over Newquay before landing back at Perranporth. This flight has excellent views of the coast and seas throughout the flight. The flight time is around 1 hour.
#4 Stunning flight over the Lake district
Tourists from all around the world visit the Lake District National Park for its spectacular scenery, wildlife, history and culture. This flight is a stunning route up the Fylde Coast, past Morecambe Bay and over the Lake District, returning alongside the Forest of Bowland. If you have your camera with you, there is no better place to be. The view really is a photographer’s dream 📸 💭
#5 Scenic flight over the Great Yorkshire Coast
On this flight you will get to see the coastal gems of Yorkshire. This includes Bridlington, Flamborough Head, Filey, Scarborough and Whitby. The North Sea can be very surprising in what it displays, from being rough to smooth, turquoise blue to navy blue and even seeing the odd pod of dolphins or the lone orca. Jump on this flight to see the east coast like you never have before!
