Go West

The Go West helicopter tour (you've gotta say Go West like you're singing the chorus of the classic 1980's Pet Shop Boys song), does what it says! The tour leaves Shoreham and heads 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 30 minute flight costs £327 and carries up to three passengers.

Unlike our helicopter experience flights this helicopter tour can be taken any day of the week giving you the chance to avoid the weekends and experience Shoreham Airport when it is less hectic. It also allows you to choose a birthday or anniversary rather than just a weekend close to it.

Shoreham Airport is the UK's oldest commercial airfield and is arguably the best location to take a scenic flight from. The stunning views of the coastline, the piers on the seafront, the distant white cliffs, the rolling Sussex Downs - all make Shoreham Airfield head and shoulders above many other windswept airfields in the middle of nowhere.

And your experience is not over once the helicopter lands. Shoreham Airport's art deco main terminal building takes you back to the days when flying was the height of sophistication. There is a bar and cafe with outdoor seating where you can watch the hustle and bustle of the airfield whilst having a drink or something to eat. If you want a special meal then there are various fine restaurants in Shoreham-by-Sea, a 5 minute walk from the airfield.

The lead member of the group will be presented with a souvenir photo CD containing professionally taken high resolution photos of various sights from the tour as well as other local landmarks. This ensures that everyone can sit back and enjoy the trip safe in the knowledge that you've already got some stunning photos to show your friends and family.

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.

  • Arranged by my lovely wife, we flew by Helifly helicopter, from Shoreham Airport on a scenic route along the coast past Brighton, and then inland to the magnificent South Lodge Hotel, where, on landing, we were greeted by a member of staff, made very welcome and given a sumptuous lunch by very attentive staff, before returning to Shoreham Airport. Our pilot, John, was excellent and most informative. He gave a good commentary, during the smooth flight. The whole package arranged by John in conjunction with South Lodge Hotel, an Exclusive Hotel. The hotel came up trumps at very, very short notice with a surprise courtesy birthday compliment, see photo! An experience not to be missed and thoroughly recommended.
