Meet your personal pilot

Look over the pilot’s shoulder and see all the dials, instruments and controls throughout your flight – a treat for aviation fans.

The rugged cliffs at Land's End

Cornwall’s furthest tip is suitably dramatic. As you head out over the Atlantic, you’ll see the cliffs, rocks and waves in an entirely new way.

West Cornwall, Sennen Cove

A long, famous expanse of beach on the Land’s End peninsula. In Summer, the waters are a tropical blue; at other times, the waves can be spectacular.

The iconic, Longships Lighthouse

There’s been a lighthouse protecting shipping from the Land’s End coast since 1795. Longships is almost 150 years old and can be seen 11 miles away.

Look out for Scillonian III

Look out through your Island Helicopter window below for the iconic white passenger ferry, making her crossing to St. Mary's Harbour.

Your first glimpse of Scilly

Very quickly after take-off, the Isles of Scilly come into view. Before you know it, you’re looking down at sandy coves and turquoise seas.
