UK Floods: Aerial Views

The run-up to Christmas was a busy time for us here at Air Experiences, with lots of orders coming in for Christmas presents and our light aircraft flights proving particularly popular. On the last weekend before Christmas we had stalls at Christmas markets in Sutton Coldfield and Leamington Spa, providing ideal last-minute Christmas pressies for those who’d left it late. With all the pre-Christmas hustle and bustle we didn’t have much time for flying, so we were delighted to be able to take to the skies again on Boxing Day and again today. We flew over to Gloucestershire to get an aerial view of the dramatic flooding that has beleaguered parts of the UK this Christmas, with Tewkesbury being particularly badly affected. Here are some photos from our flights, which have sparked a lot of interest on social media and seen us featured in the Daily Mail, ITV News and the Gloucestershire Echo.

Air Experiences On TV!


A few weeks ago we filmed an interview with the lovely folks from Cotswold TV, talking about how we founded Air Experiences, how we met and why we’re different from the bigger voucher companies. We took presenter Rowena for a flight over Warwickshire, with Lee in flying instructor mode! Our interview starts a minute into the video, and you’ll see lots of shots of Rowena’s flight with Lee.

Watch the video and get to know us a bit better! You’ll also get a taster of what you could look forward to if you buy one of our flying gift vouchers…

If you’d like to experience flying yourself, or you want to treat someone to a voucher this Christmas, visit our fly an aeroplane pages to browse the exciting flight options we have on offer for light aircraft, as featured in the video. We have locations across the country, not just those mentioned in the video, so order before Friday 20 December to get your voucher in time to go under the Christmas tree!
