Mountains, lakes, valleys, magic and myths – this is what Snowdonia means to most people.
Nowhere else in Britain will you find such variety in such a compact area. A helicopter pleasure flight will show you how the beauty is outstanding.
With 15 peaks over 3000ft it is where Sir Edmund Hilary trained before climbing Everest. Betws y Coed is the jewel of Snowdonia, surrounded by forests, mountains and lakes.
Flights take place from two locations – Craig-y-Dderwen, The Riverside Hotel in Betws Y Coed or Llanbedr Airfield.
The Craig-y-Dderwen hotel is set in 16 acres of beautiful grounds on the banks of the Conwy River and has an award winning restaurant. Elgar spent much time here and I’m sure you will want to as well.
There has been an airfield at Llanbedr since 1941 when it first opened. During world war two it was home to 32 different squadrons of the RAF flying Spitfire, Mustang, Typhoon, Anson, Lysander and Martinet. More recently it was chosen as one of 8 possible locations for a spaceport.
It’s position on the beautiful welsh coast and within Snowdonia National park make it an excellent location for flying, the endless beaches and mountain backdrop give some of the most stunning views in Britain.
Flights take place on certain days between April and October.

Please note flying in the Snowdonia region is fantastic but the weather in the area can be very unpredictable and changeable, and sometimes the flights have to be postponed. If this happens then we rebook passengers for the next available flight.
