Scenic flights

Even for people who know Cornwall well, seeing beloved landmarks from our twin-engined Islander aircraft can be a new, and moving experience. Often, it’s a birthday or anniversary gift, or simply the high point of a holiday. Flying from Land’s End airport at altitudes between 500 and 1,000 feet, you’ll take a round trip over West Cornwall’s iconic coastline – or, if there’s a special place you’d particularly like to see from the air, we can help you design your own flightpath.

The aircraft can carry up to eight passengers, so you can fly as an individual, a couple, a family or a group. The flight itself takes around 20-30 minutes, depending on your route; your memories of the view will last for years.

Your flight route

Our usual flightpath will give you a spectacular, aerial perspective on West Cornwall’s most famous landmarks – and you’ll see it all a second time, as we fly back up the coast to Land’s End. We’re also happy to discuss a tailored route, if there’s somewhere special you’d like to see from the air.

Cornwall... as you've never seen it before

A whole new perspective

The Cornish landmarks you know and love look very different from the air. Once you’ve seen the Minack Theatre, Sennen or St. Michael’s Mount from the air, they’ll never look the same again.

 
Choose your own route

If there’s somewhere you’d especially like to see from the air, we’re happy to create a tailored route, just for you. Ask us for details when you call.

 
Your own personal pilot

You can look over the pilot’s shoulder, watch them as they work, and see all the dials, instruments and controls throughout your flight – a rare treat for aviation fans.

 
Endless Cornish coast

It’s arguably the world’s best coastline – and you’ll never get a better view. See miles and miles of cliffs, beaches and coombes… including North and South coasts at the same time.

 
Flying, as it should be

Your small, nimble twin-engine aeroplane – a Britten-Norman Islander – is one of Europe’s most popular light aircraft, and for good reason. Even James Bond has piloted one.

 

FAQs

Can we change the route / book a longer flight?

We’re very happy to tailor the flight for you, as long as we have aircraft available, and the weather permits. Although of course this might cost a little more, please call us to discuss it.

What happens in bad weather?

Flying depends on the weather – our priority is making sure you’re safe, and get the best possible view – so please call for a weather check before you set out. If we can’t fly, we’ll rebook your flight as soon as we can.

What facilities are there at Land’s End Airport?

There’s a café and terrace, which both have views over the airfield. You’ll also find ample parking, a shop, baby changing facilities, a children’s corner and free WiFi. View more at Land’s End Airport.

Can I share my flight with another group?

Yes; if there’s another group that’s willing to share, this is certainly possible. Please ask us about it when you book.

Can I photograph or film my flight?

Of course. We hope the flight will give you memories to treasure, and it’s only natural if you want to capture some of the views.

How many people can the aircraft seat?

The Islander can carry up to eight passengers.
