Helicopter Rides Glasgow

If you're heading to Glasgow for a short period of time in the near future and you want to experience as much of the city as possible within said period of time, why not try Glasgow helicopter rides. Of course there are many reasons to visit the city; it has a uniquely Scottish vibe about it for a start.


The sort of atmosphere that I have never witnessed anywhere else, it is in fact entirely different to Edinburgh and whether this is a good thing or a bad thing is pretty much down to personal taste. It has an endless selection of modern bars and cafes and some really beautiful architecture. However even with all that is on offer, I guarantee that if you take a helicopter ride above the city, it will be the most memorable aspect of your journey by far. If you are interested in Glasgow helicopter rides, here is what you need to know.

The price of Glasgow helicopter rides.

Many people expect Glasgow helicopter rides to be expensive and unfortunately this is not a misconception. Pilots don't exactly work for minimum wage and helicopters cost quite a bit more than cars. Therefore, the cheapest helicopter ride that you will find will be about seventy dollars and that is only for five minutes. The prices get more reasonable if you take a helicopter ride for longer; with a thirty minute ride likely to set you back about two hundred and fifty dollars.

The sights that can be seen

Within a thirty minute tour of the city by helicopter almost all famous landmarks can be witnessed and what better way to see the sites than from onboard a helicopter. Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, the Clyde Auditorium, the distinct architecture of the University of Glasgow and the home of Scotland’s national football team, Hampden Park, can all be seen in such a short helicopter ride. If you are only heading there for the weekend, Glasgow helicopter rides are the fastest possible way to see all that the city has to offer

The all important safety level

Flying seems to bring out the neurotic side of most people as it fills them with irrational fears. If you take a helicopter ride in Glasgow, you are virtually guaranteed to get back on the ground safely. Any company operating aircraft in the UK is required to comply with frankly endless safety regulations. Your pilot will be a professional with more than enough experience and if there is even a chance of turbulence, he will refuse to take off. Passengers are also required to be strapped in for the duration of the flight.

So in conclusion, if you're interested in making the most of your trip to Glasgow then you can probably guess that I highly recommend Glasgow helicopter rides. Other than your first visit to a Glaswegian pub, it is likely to be the most memorable part of your stay in this beautiful city, just don't forget to bring your camera.
