How to Live the High Life

Aug 15, 2008
Fly me to the moon
Let me sing among those stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

(Frank Sinatra)

Flying is the act or process of flight. Since man first looked up into the skies and saw the stars, heavenly bodies and creatures above him, he has wanted to take to the air and experience this for himself. Books have been written about flying, poems penned, and songs sung all trying to capture the moment of weightlessness, the sheer thrill or the magical nothingness, that place between the heavens and the Earth where gravity is defied. Flight is the process by which an object achieves sustained movement either through the air (or movement beyond earth's atmosphere, in the case of spaceflight) by aerodynamically generating lift, propulsive thrust or aerostatically using buoyancy. Between borderline obsession and fear of flight, man's feelings about flying are never lukewarm, and our Flying Experience Days and Activities will turn this into a full-blow passion.

Thrill seekers will naturally gravitate towards the Flying Experience Day Gifts: "How to live the high life". Be a Top Gun Flying in a Bulldog, where you get the opportunity to fly an ex-military training aeroplane. In Ultimate Aerobatics Flight, get the heart pumping with this adrenalin rush of note, or experience Aerobatics in a Bulldog Experience, where you will take to the skies for an adrenaline-fuelled aerobatics flight. The Indoor Skydiving Gift Pack will give you an opportunity to taste the thrill of freefall in an indoor wind tunnel, but if you've got the bottle, we suggest you leap out of an aircraft at 13,000 feet in a Tandem Skydive Gift Pack. The great advantage of a tandem skydive is that you need no experience - just a thirty-minute briefing before you jump. You'll be securely strapped to your instructor and, moments later, you're leaping out of a plane and skydiving to earth at one hundred and twenty miles per hour! What a thrill!

Want to feel the peace and tranquillity that sheer weightlessness Flying Experience Days provides? Gliding with a Winch Launch and Gliding Gift Packs both guarantee you the experience of a lifetime - the thrill and excitement of powerless flight, while a Microlighting Experience Day perfectly captures the spirit of early aviation. Nothing quite compares to the serenity of hot air ballooning, though, so choose between the Champagne Balloon Flight or Balloon Flight For Two for a dream experience.

To show the one you love the sights of 'Old London Town' in style, as they have probably never seen it before, take a London Pleasure Flight and view this great city from the air! For a trip back in time, surely nothing can compare with a Tiger Moth Flying Lesson a unique chance to experience aviation in authentic 1930s style! The de Havilland Tiger Moth is a 1930s biplane and was operated by the Royal Air Force and others as a primary trainer. The Tiger Moth remained in service with the RAF until 1952 when many of the surplus aircraft entered civil operation. Many other nations used the Tiger Moth both in military and civil applications and the ubiquitous little trainer is still in great demand worldwide as a recreational aircraft.

Helicopter Flying Experience Days are another great favourite and a unique way to take to the skies. Flights from ten to fifteen minutes provide a truly exciting and unforgettable experience, and there's no stylish way to impress your loved one or to see our capital city. A Helicopter Flight over Scenic Britain will provide you with beautiful views of the United Kingdom from a helicopter cockpit, while a Helicopter Buzz Gift Pack will prove once and for all that nothing else comes close to touching the magic of vertical flight! Alternatively, enjoy a flight over the landmarks of London in a JetRanger helicopter. The Bell Helicopter Model 206 JetRanger is a two-bladed main rotor, turbine-powered helicopter with a conventional, two-bladed tail rotor. The aircraft uses hydraulic boosted flight controls.

Make someone's flying dream come true with the ultimate gift - a Helicopter Flying Lesson! These can be arranged with the greatest of ease and maximum enjoyment can be guaranteed for the recipient. Become a helicopter pilot for the day and test your skills! Or, if a simulator is more your thing, man an Airliner Simulator for twenty minutes. You will get to pilot an airliner and land in a major airport! Nothing compares to the sense of freedom with Flying Experience Day Gifts - a gift they'll remember forever! Go on - make someone fly.
