John & Ann Price, Bucknell

John & Ann were lucky to receive two gift experience vouchers as Christmas presents from their daughter and son-in-law for the Historic Shropshire Tour.  John said this about the flight...

"Helen, just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the experience today.  You and Paul made it easy for us first timers and Paul was very good in taking us off piste slightly to fly over Bucknell."

"We can certainly recommend your company to future prospects and may well come back to you to buy vouchers for other members of our family.  Well done again to you both."

John kindly sent us these photos.

Paul's daughter bought him a gift experience voucher for the Historic Shropshire Tour, and sent us this lovely feedback.

"Good morning Helen,"

"I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my flight on Sunday morning, and to thank you for your part in organising it. We couldn’t have had a clearer or sunnier day, and it was so nostalgic to fly over all of my old haunts. I will certainly recommend the experience to anyone who shares my love of Shropshire."

"I hope all goes well with you and your company in the future, and thank you again."

Ellen Swain, Telford

Ellen bought gift experience vouchers from us for the Scenic Severn Tour for her and her husband, Andy, and had this to say after their flight...

"Morning Helen,"

"Wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for making Saturday so special. As you know, Andy was very hesitant so sitting up the front was a good move!"

"Brilliant flight, especially going over mother-in-law's house and the Wrekin."

"Thanks again."

Marcellina booked a suprise flight with Helitrip to

 pick up her son on his wedding day and fly him, his best man and 2 ushers from Park Lodge Hotel, Aberystwyth to the the wedding venue in Llanilar.

Here's what he said...

"Sally and I wanted to say a massive thank you.  We had a lovely day and flight.  The service from the company and your experience and commentary has made today extra special.  I'll highly recommend Helitrip.  Please pass our thanks to everyone involved."

Armin Zink, Zurich

During a visit to the UK, Armin booked a flight with us from Anglesey Golf Course to Chateau Rhianfa flying via the South Stack Lighthouse

An AS355 Twin Squirrel aircraft was used for the charter and here's what Armin said about the flight!

"That was just an amazing flight. I didn't know that those kind of helicopters can stand all weather. We were even happier with all the wind, as there were impressive waves on the shore."

Security at Drayton Manor were excellent, the helicopter was waiting when we got there, Paul the pilot was lovely and the car was waiting when we got to Weston Park. We had a wonderful day and my friend was utterly surprised and blown away by the whole experience. Certainly a day to remember."

V Fest Trip

Alison Griffin, Southwater Events Group

As part of a corporate hospitality package for our client, we flew 15 passengers from Sleap Airfield to Hoylake and back again for the Golf Championship.

“Thank you Helitrip for a well organised helicopter ride for our guests of the International Centre, Telford.

Our prospective client exclaimed afterwards that it was the best thing that she had ever done on a destination trip and she felt nothing could ever top it!

We felt it was a great way to show off Telford as an events destination and would certainly consider it as an affordable, yet luxury client hospitality treat in the future.”

Alex Jones, Telford

"I just wanted to say on behalf of myself and my fiancée Jemma, thank you very much for the Helicopter Flight this weekend.

It was a lovely surprise for Jemma on Sunday (she was angry with me at first as she thought I’d bought some dogs and we were going to pick them up haha)

We both thoroughly enjoyed it, the pilot was fantastic and overall it was simply a great experience!

Thank you so much once again."

Alex Jones from Telford

Elaine Williams, Shrewsbury

"Well I can’t thank you enough for making our girls night!

Thank you Helen, you really were a star – and of course the lovely Pilot. Thanks again."

Karen Sinclair, Shropshire

"I just wanted to thank you again for organising our helicopter flight on Saturday. We had a super day and it was wonderful to make it to the wedding. My nephew and new wife were thrilled with our presence and all the other guests who gave us an amazing send off!!

Mum and Dad loved it. Mum was a little tense to start with as she is afraid of heights, but was soon put at ease by our pilot Paul who was an absolute star! He really made our day. His professional, friendly manner and eagerness to give us a beautiful, smooth and interesting helicopter flight made a most wonderful day perfect."

Philip Rodenhurst, Hawk Group

"Just a quick note to say thanks for a lovely evening, it was great to get a new view of the Shropshire countryside.   

Every time I hear a helicopter about, I now spend ages looking to see if it's your JetRanger!"

David Smith, Wem

"Many thanks for all your work in making the helicopter flight on Sunday such a success for Anne & Ivan's Diamond Wedding celebration.

The weather was not the best (inevitably, of course, it cleared up later) but the happy couple and Clare really enjoyed the flight, especially seeing their home from the air.

The pilot was also a great hit - "really dishy" was the general feminine response - so I'm quite jealous; all the ladies fancied him AND he gets to drive a helicopter. Some guys have all the luck.  Thank you again."

David Austin, Telford

“Just a quick message to say thank you to all at Helitrip for an excellent and enjoyable helicopter flight over Telford and Shrewsbury on Saturday.

I would recommend it to anyone - once again, thank you!”

Bob Porter, Telford

"Thank you very much for the great experience; starting with our telephone conversations in arranging the 'Shrewsbury by Air' flight, the greeting, and of course the flight - it was much appreciated.

My daughter has a birthday coming up at the end of the month and she would also like to take a flight.

Thanks once again."

Tony Holton, ARH Group

"Thanks for arranging my flight to Silverstone so efficiently.

You saved me over 4 hours of being held up in traffic before and after the event."

Tony Holton avoided the Silverstone traffic by arriving to the Grand Prix by helicopter

Andrew Abel, Shrewsbury

"We felt that we wanted to express our thanks for an exceptional Fly & Dine helicopter experience with your company.

From the first tentative phone call to the end of a wonderful afternoon, we could not fault your customer service. Helen couldn't have been more helpful on providing different options for our celebration and expressed genuine interest in our requirements.

Jenny met us at the airport and very kindly chauffeured us to the helipad, she was enthusiastic & extremely professional.

Finally, Paul our Pilot was just the icing on the cake. He was full of information & we can’t tell you how exciting it was seeing the amazing autumnal scenery from such a vantage point - truly spectacular. Flying in and landing at Sweeney Hall was incredible & Paul was so interesting to talk to, we asked him to join us for coffee!

Thank you to you all & we have not hesitated in recommending your company."

David Watkins, North Shropshire

"Just a short note to say many thanks for the helicopter experience. Not only did it thrill us four inside the helicopter, but also my 3 grandchildren on the ground.

Once again thanks for providing the opportunity to see where we live from above and I wish Helitrip every success."

David Watkins + Family

Mr. Gardner, Shrewsbury

"I thought I would give you some feedback on our 'Shrewsbury by Air' helicopter trip.

I do recognise and appreciate that Helen and Paul seemed to 'pull out the stops', so to speak, to ensure my friend had a day to remember. I can assure you that it was a complete success! She was over the moon about the whole experience and still talks about it.

On the way home our party stopped off at the Bridgewater Arms for late afternoon refreshments to round off the perfect day.

Please pass on my thanks to Paul."

Mr. Gardner after his helicopter flight over Shropshire

Daniel Evans, Helicoptours

“Many thanks to Helitrip for operating the pleasure flights during the Arundel Show 2013. You provided an excellent, professional service when managing passengers, health & safety requirements and flight operations.

I have been working in the helicopter industry for nearly 15 years and I have dealt with almost every company in the U.K. The operation that you guys run is a compliment to your owners, investors & the aviation industry itself.

We will most certainly be using you again in the near future. Please also pass on my thanks to your pilot Paul.”
