The Heavenly Half Hour - A Private 30 Minute Helicopter Tour of Brighton and the South Downs
The \'Triple H\' is undoubtedly our most popular flight. Thirty minutes allows us to see both the splendour of Brighton and Hove from the air and also to experience some of the more rural sights north of the South Downs. This tour is for up to 3 passengers in a modern Robinson R44 helicopter. The lead member of the party can sit next to the pilot, and we can offer tweaks to the itinerary should there be specific things you want to see within the 30 minute flight time.

Brighton City (Shoreham) Airport is an excellent airfield to start a scenic helicopter flight. The recently refurbished Main Terminal Building is an art deco treasure and takes visitors back to an era where flying was the height of sophistication. The views over the airfield are a photographers dream with the light aircraft in the foreground and the stunning backdrop of Lancing College\'s ornate chapel and rolling South Downs in the background.

After a short safety briefing your pilot will assist you in boarding the helicopter. On leaving the airfield the tour initially routes eastbound along the coastline taking in Shoreham-by-Sea\'s port area before reaching the residential areas of Hove and then Brighton. Your pilot will point out many of the iconic sights including Brighton Pier, the Royal Pavilion and The Grand Hotel.

The flight continues passing the white cliffs that run East of Brighton till reaching the historic port of Newhaven. Here the tour turns inland to see the South Downs and Lewes, the county town of East Sussex. After Lewes the tour turns west running along the South Downs and taking in some of the majestic rural properties and vineyards (which supply the English sparkling wine trade).

After seeing Ditchling Beacon and the Jack and Jill windmills the tour heads back towards Brighton City (Shoreham) airport. The approach to the airfield allows an excellent aerial view of the chapel at Lancing College before the helicopter hover taxys back to the hangar.
