Dambusters Sightseeing Tour & Lunch

Sightseeing and history combined on this Dambusters Helicopter Tour! Setting off from a location between Sheffield and Chesterfield in a luxury helicopter you will follow the same flight path as the pilots from 617 squadron over the iconic double dam and take in some of most recognisable sights of the Peak District too. To put your Dambuster day out in perspective we go back to March 1943 when the 617 Lancaster Squadron trained for a top secret mission. The training was conducted along the Derwent Valley. It turned out the mission was the now famous “Dam Busters” raid on the Ruhr Valley in Germany and this tour brings this significant moment in history to life for you in a wonderful way. As well as seeing the dams from the air these really rather special helicopter sightseeing tours give you the opportunity to fly back to base in a southerly direction taking in Chatsworth House and superb Derbyshire countryside that surrounds it. Once back to base you are invited for a carvery meal at the Moorlands Pub making it an ideal family day out. This Dambusters Helicopter Tour has got to be one of the most exciting of our sightseeing experience days.  Not only will you be flying over some truly beautiful countryside on the day but you’ll also get an insight into what it may have felt like for those heroes practicing for their daring WW2 missions.
