This company is run by idiots. I've had a flying experience cancelled because they failed to 'make the pilot available' bare in mind this has been booked for months, surely the first thing they would book would be a pilot? I can't accept that as an excuse. As they don't do this at the weekends it forces you to take a day off work and obviously there's absolutely no compensation provided for the day off work you've now wasted. It's not the first time its been cancelled granted the first was weather but still they cancel it on the morning, surely they have a weather forecast and could save people taking a day off but just calling it earlier. Presumably they leave it to the last minute on the off chance it will still go ahead and clearly don't care about the consequences if it doesn't. When discussing experiences with friends I will actively telling them to steer clear of these flying clowns.

No praise would be enough for this experience! This was a Virgin experience Birthday Present from my wife. Very good friendly down to earth staff. Excellent briefing. Then there's the actual flight. OMG! The pilot/instructor was brilliant. Clear concise and friendly. The R22 I flew in gave so much feedback through the controls it was just incredible! Really loved everything about it and would like to thank the team for the experience! If your thinking of doing this or learning to fly Helicopters, stop thinking. Book with flying Pig today. 10/10. I will be booking lessons off the back of this for sure. See you soon.

I received this as a birthday present. The booking process was really easy and the staff members were very friendly, especially Malcolm and Captain Paul. Flying the helicopter was so much fun and I would highly recommend Flying Pigs Helicopters.

Since the beginning, my experience with this company has not been good. Initially, I booked a flight for summer, but they kept changing the time with excuses. Not only the changed the times but also the conditions. I bought it for a solo lesson on Sunday and they wanted to go on Saturday and with a bigger helicopter. The woman at the office (not the young lady but a middle aga woman) was quite rude and authoritarian. Finally, we had our time to fly. I paid for a video and a photo, but their "production team", that's to say one of the ladies, did not manage to recover the video and it was lost. They did not tell me anything. It was only when I phoned asking for the video and the photo that they told me. I am still waiting for the photo. In my opinion, it is not worth paying £250 to have this kind of attention. They are other companies offering better customer care. If I was the owner, I will definitely do not allow that "middle-aged woman" to contact clients. She is authoritarian and, definitely, customer care is not her strength.
