The most romantic Valentine’s Day experiences that create extra special memories for you and your love
When it comes to spoiling your loved one for Valentine’s Day, nothing says ‘I Love You’ more than a romantic day flying helicopters, creating extra special memories with all the side trimmings of gifts and bubbly!
After a nice Valentine’s lie-in, make your way to Elstree Aerodrome, perhaps for a delicious breakfast at our on-site Cafe Restaurant, Ikaron. Overlooking the runway and helipad, it’ll be breakfast with a special view filling you with excitement and anticipation for your own upcoming flight.
Making your way over to the Flying Pig office, which is about a 2 minute walk from the restaurant, you will be welcomed by our friendly office staff and Ground Handlers. After check-in, enjoy our office facilities as you await the start of your experience; browse some of our modern art or play our pinball and games machines. We have a few toys to keep little ones amused and there are, of course, tea and coffee making facilities. Relax together before and after your flight in complete comfort with no rush and no time limits.
Our Ground Handler will momentarily interrupt your daydreams by starting the briefing. You will now have the opportunity to meet the other pairs in your group, learn a bit more about what the day holds for you and get to know some important information about the helicopter and airfield.
Once you are fully up to date with the briefing, you, your partner and your new friends will all be lead to the helipad for some amazing photo opportunities; pose in front of your aircraft, as a couple, individually and as a group, before all having an individual shot in the cockpit!
Then the moment you have been waiting for all day will have finally arrived! It is time to FLY! One of you will be in the front taking the controls under instruction and you will be flying your lover around a circuit of the local area – showing them incredible aerial views of the beautiful Hertfordshire surroundings, the London skyline in the near distance as well as some of the local landmarks such as Warner Bros. Studios, Elstree Studios and Arsenal Training Ground.
Depending on your package you will then come back down to Earth to some more pre-arranged surprises! Chocolates, non-alcoholic bubbly, a Certificate of Achievement and all of your photos will be on display ready for your return back into the office.
As you sit together, sipping your bubbly, nibbling your choccies and watching your photos go round you will also receive your Forever Rose – one final romantic gift for that special person in your life and another token to remember this wonderful experience by.
An unforgettable day for every couple! Wanting more to go on to after your time flying helicopters? Why not add to your experience by booking a Valentine’s meal at nearby public house, The Battle Axes – or make a night of it too at the ever-so-special Laura Ashley Manor Hotel which is just a 5 minute drive from the aerodrome!
