What we will do

The meeting is at the agreed time at our base in Ottaviano, in the province of Naples. Here we will meet the professional pilot who will accompany us during our flying experience.

After boarding the4-seater R44 helicopter and a quick briefing on behaviour and safety rules, we will be ready to take off.

We will fly over Vesuvius, the famous volcano that dominates the Bay of Naples, and observe its crater from above, enjoying the breathtaking panorama that only a helicopter flight can give us.

We will also admire from the sky the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the two Roman cities destroyed in 79 AD by the eruption of Vesuvius, with their temples, villas and amphitheatres.

The actual duration of the flight is about 20 minutes and ends with the return to the base in Octavian.

Who it is aimed at

The experience is suitable for everyone over the age of 8.

The experience will be carried out by a maximum group of 3 people. You must be in good psychophysical condition, without heart or circulatory problems.
