After a short pre-flight briefing you’ll board a Piper Seneca twin-engine light aircraft for a fantastic half hour sightseeing trip. From take off in Essex you’ll follow the Thames west into the heart of the city, getting a view of the capital that most people only see on the opening titles of EastEnders. You’ll see the Millennium Dome, Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, the towers at Canary Wharf, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament, then turn north to fly over Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and the royal parks, before heading back east to land in Essex.
