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
