The perfect present for Andrew Westbury

On Saturday 11th April, Helitrip had the pleasure of helping Andrew Westbury and his family celebrate his 50th birthday with a helicopter pleasure flight around the beautiful local area of Cowen, Denbighshire.
Fantastic flying conditions on the day helped tremendously, allowing great visibility to the flight and helping the whole party see some spectacular views of the Welsh countryside.
Andrew's wife, Merle, gave us this wonderful testimonial...
"We would just like to say as a family a big thank you to you and your pilot for the amazing time we had on Saturday.  My husband was totally blown away with the experience!
"We will certainly recommend you to anyone else that is thinking of doing the same.
"We will be definitely coming back to you in the very near future.

"Once again thank you and Paul so much for making Andrew's 50th birthday surprise so extra special."
