All vouchers purchased and flights taken are subject these Terms and Conditions of Business for Pleasure Flights Ltd. Also subject to, as appropriate, EU Council Regulations 889 / 2002, which details our insurance liability. Any dissatisfaction with these terms must be brought to our attention within 14 days of purchase.
All open tickets in terms of date and venue need to be booked in for a flight date scheduled to take place within 12 MONTHS of the start date shown on the ticket. The company reserves the right to change dates and venues at its discretion due to operational circumstances. Current dates and venues are available on the website.
On a flight day our pilot needs to assess the weather conditions at 2000 feet, for the whole day from the helicopter’s positioning location and over a 50 mile radius from the venue. If your helicopter flight is cancelled due to the forecasted / actual weather conditions / any unforeseen circumstances, (eg: helicopter serviceability/crew availability/emergency aerial firefighting), please contact our office to re-schedule. The validity of the ticket is extended for a further 12 months following the cancelled helicopter flight date, but will become void if not booked in for another flight date scheduled to take place before this additional 12 month period elapses. Refunds are not given due to the above cancellation reasons.
Cancellation by the consumer in other circumstances than the above will be considered. A refund less 25% may be made at the discretion of the company.
