Huge choice of locations

GloucestershireCirencester - situated in the heart of Gloucestershire and known as the "Capital Of The Cotswolds", is an historic Roman town in the heart of the Cotswolds with attractions from a Roman Amphitheater to the nearby Chedworth Roman Villa. In Roman times Cirencester was one of the most important places in the country, second only to London. It was once an important wool town and much of the wealth of the town is as a result of the wool trade. The magnificent Cirencester Parish Church in Cirencester's Market Place is one of the most impressive "wool" churches in the country and even more magnificent when viewed from the air.

Cheltenham - Cheltenham has been welcoming visitors for almost 300 years, ever since the discovery of the first natural spring led to the development of the elegant spa town of today. A unique and historic town in the county of Gloucestershire, Cheltenham lies some five kilometres to the east of the M5 motorway mid-way between Bristol and Birmingham on the edge of the Cotswold Hills. 22 percent of the immediate countryside surrounding Cheltenham is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty and Cheltenham is also the most complete Regency town in England and one of the few English towns in which traditional and contemporary architecture complement each other. Visitors to the town would drink the waters at either the original spa or one of the rival spas that were established in the early 19th century, such as Montpellier and Pittville. So you can either partake of the local spa waters following your flight or join us for the more traditional champagne toast.

Dursley - is the second largest town in the Stroud District of Gloucestershire and is located at the South-West edge of the Cotswolds. It is a town of charm and tradition, surrounded by beautiful farming country.
The Cotswold Way for walkers, follows the edge of the Cotswold escarpment and passes through the centre of Dursley and flyers from Dursley can be treated to fine views of the whole of the Severn Vale.

Bourton-on-the-Water and its nearby neighbour Stow on the Wold straddles the river Windrush with its series of elegant low bridges beside neat tree-shaded greens and tidy stone banks. Standing back from the river are traditional Cotswolds buildings, many of which are now tourist shops for the day-trippers and visitors. Bouton on the Water has been described as the 'Little Venice' of the Cotswold and is one of the most popular tourist spots in the region being serviced by the many shops, cafe's, and attractions. Join us in a flight over this exquisite area.
