Nothing compares to having a bird’s eye view of the world. Soaring in the air above some of New Hampshire’s most brilliant coastal landscapes is enough to take one’s breath away. Normally, one could only dream about such an experience. Even airplanes can’t quite capture the singular feeling of flying through the air on one’s own. However, we are fortunate in this region to have a helicopter tour company that offers amazing flights over the coast of New Hampshire at affordable rates! Just imagine: You are nose to the window, peering out at the glistening ocean and lush New Hampshire forests as you seem suspended mid-air in your own personal flying machine! This is exactly what you will experience if you chose to fly on a helicopter tour as your spring outdoors activity!
This sounds awesome! What is the company’s name?
The company’s name is Seacoast Helicopters and they are based right in at the Pease International Tradeport in Portsmouth. Not only do they offer flights to those interested in exploring the New Hampshire landscape from the air, but they also offer flight training and school to those who want to learn how to fly themselves.
What kind of packages do they offer?
There are two separate kinds of flight experiences Seacoast Helicopters offers to visitors looking for a scenic flight around New Hampshire. The first is the Adventure Helicopter Tour which takes passengers up into the sky for breathtaking views of the Piscataqua River, the impressive Memorial Bridge, the scattering of islands in the Isles of Shoals, historic lighthouses and even the frost-tipped peaks of the White Mountains. This is surely a trip that will be memorable for a lifetime. The second tour, the Dream Flight, is for the explorer at heart. In this tour you are able to learn the mechanics of flying a helicopter, soar around the Seacoast AND take control of the helicopter yourself mid-flight! This is a perfect experience for those that have always wanted to try a hand at flying themselves. In either case, each tour would be a perfect gift for someone who would appreciate the gift of a scenic flight.
In rare cases, the conditions during the spring warrant extra caution while flying. Please check ahead for any abnormal weather patterns that may disrupt your flight into the air: Portsmouth Weather Report
