This is a wonderful once in a lifetime opportunity. The experience was fabulous from start to finish. As first timers we were immediately put at ease by our excellent pilot, Stewart. He was very relaxed and made the helicopter ride seem straightforward (which for him, it was) which in turn made us relaxed. We set out from Son Bonet airfield on a beautiful, sunny day. The sky was clear and the views were amazing. We had the back doors off so we had a phenomenal view of down below. We flew over the blanket-like inland area, over the mountains and down to the coast on the other side. We saw the stunning village of Valldemossa and flew up the coast to Puerto de Soller. Then back inland and once again over the mountains where we were able to see the reservoirs and the snakelike road to Sa Calobra. Then back to the airfield. Amazing day.

I booked a flight with The Aviation Centre through Stewart back in December to fly with my Dad on my birthday to make it one to remember. We arrived to the airfield in Marratxi on a beautiful sunny day and met Neal who was instantly likeable and made us both feel very comfortable. After a safety presentation in the office we made our way out to the chopper. Neal explained everything in a clear and concise way and made sure that we understood everything. We took off and as soon as we were airborne, Neal relinquished control of the helicopter to me! After some mild panic on my part and some reassurance from Neal, I was able to fly the chopper towards the north of the island. It is an incredible experience and the best way to see the beautiful island spreading out beneath. Next up it was Dad's turn and he equally enjoyed his flight, aided by Neal's guidance. The Aviation Centre have something unique - an exhilarating way to see the island let by fun, charming and calm instructors. This is a must-do experience for anyone coming to the island or for residents who would like to try something new and to see the island from a completely different perspective. Thanks to Neal for an amazing flight and I will definitely be looking into doing my license!

Phenomenal experience! Our pilot Stewart was exceptional, he suggested a location for my proposal in a beautiful hotel (Son Brull) which was a former monastery where he had organised a romantic champagne picnic in the grounds for me to pop the question. The whole day was perfect, we flew for a couple of hours all over the island, Stewart was very knowledgeable and friendly (and not a bad cameraman too) and to top things off she said YES!!

My Christmas present from my husband was a flight from the aviation centre. It truly was the best gift I have ever had, Our Pilot Stewart made it such a prefect way to see the Island in all its glory. I enjoyed it so much that I immediately booked another trip for my friends 50th, this time we stopped for lunch in the mountains.....does life get any better?
