If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to fly over Cornwall in a helicopter now is your chance to find out, without even leaving the comfort of your chair.
Such aircraft are a common sight over the county thanks to Helston’s naval base RNAS Culdrose but for most people owning a private helicopter or jet is simply a dream.
That is where Charter-a Ltd, which provides chartered jet, helicopter and air taxi flights all over the UK, 24 hours a day, has stepped in to give a glimpse of living the high life, quite literally.
Mark Zaiger, operations director with the company, has sent in footage of a flight from Newquay to Falmouth.
Captured yesterday morning, it begins with taking off from the company’s base at Cornwall Newquay Airport and flying over the airfield, before heading out towards the sea and along the coastline.
It passes over built-up Newquay, rural fields and above Truro and Malpas before making its way to the Carrick Roads and River Fal.
There is a glimpse of Falmouth Docks and Pendennis Castle sitting high up in Falmouth and gives a chance for people to spot their house as it flies over the town before landing at Falmouth Town’s football ground in Bickland Water Road.
