Helicopter Rides Yorkshire

Many places in the UK are rich in history but one of the most beautiful historic counties in the UK must be Yorkshire. If you are planning a visit to Yorkshire than you are likely pondering just how will you witness all that the county has to offer when it is so big.


If you were to spend a week there then you could probably fit it all in but if you are just going there for a weekend then you are bound to miss out on a lot. One way of seeing as much as you can in as little time as you can is to take a helicopter ride. Yes, there are companies that offer Yorkshire helicopter rides at relatively reasonable prices and I do not think that there is a better way to experience the county. So if you fancy blowing a bit of cash on the activity, here's the answer to the questions that you are likely to have.

How much are Yorkshire helicopter rides?

If you only take to the air for five minutes, then there is a price tag of about seventy five dollars which works out at a pretty crazy rate per minute. If on the other hand you choose a helicopter ride that lasts thirty minutes then the price should be about two hundred and fifty dollars. This may still seem expensive; however you should remember that you can see a hell of a lot of Yorkshire within such a short period of time on board a helicopter. Also if it is your first time on board this type of aircraft, it is likely to be something that you remember forever, and so I definitely do think that it is worth its relatively high price tag.

What can be seen during Yorkshire helicopter rides?

There are quite a few companies offering Yorkshire helicopter rides and the route taken will vary from company to company. Most companies however will provide a route that takes in as many Yorkshires main sights as possible. Manor House, York Minster and Cistercian abbey are some of the things you should try not to miss. They will also usually include at least one of Yorkshires famous national parks, the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales. Some companies will also allow you to request that certain places be added to the itinerary, so don't be afraid to ask.

Are Yorkshire helicopter rides safe?

Due to rigorous UK safety regulations, all helicopters are thoroughly inspected in between flights. All pilots must be highly experienced and if there is the slightest chance of dangerous weather they will refuse to take off. Therefore safety is the last thing that you need to be concerned about.

So in conclusion, Yorkshire helicopter rides are a fantastic choice for exploring what is considered to be the most historic county in the UK. Though they are a little expensive, there is no better way to experience the Yorkshire Dales than from fifteen hundred feet in the air.
