All quoted flight times are approximate and may vary either way on the day of the flight due to the volume of air traffic or other operational reasons.
Flights are subject to weather conditions and aircraft serviceability and as a result, flights are occasionally cancelled at short notice. In the event of cancellation, we will rebook your flight free of charge. Hummingbird Helicopters Ltd will not be held responsible for the costs of travel, accommodation or any other associated costs should your flight be cancelled. Please contact Hummingbird on the morning of your flight to ascertain the likelihood of postponement due to weather. T: 01302 802221
Hummingbird Helicopters will happily offer a refund within 14 days of purchase. After 14 days, no refund will be available, although it is possible to transfer the voucher to a different participant free of charge. We normally require 2 weeks notice, but this can increase during peak times. If you wish to change the date or time of your booking, it may be possible to move your flight to another date or time free of charge if you call us 7 days prior to your booking. Any later changes are subject to a £25 admin fee.
AGE / HEIGHT RESTRICTIONS

Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied to the Hummingbird premises by a parent or guardian. Weight restrictions apply – passengers cannot be above 16 stone / 102 kg or 6’2”.
The Pilot-in-Command of the aircraft can, at their own discretion, refuse any person on board the aircraft if he/she suspects them to have consumed excessive amounts of alcohol or consumed any illegal substances/drugs within the previous 24 hours. Whilst every precaution is taken for the safety of passengers, the owner/operator of the aircraft cannot be held liable for loss, damage or injury which does not result from their negligence. Participants wishing to take cameras and other photographic equipment on the flight do so entirely at their own risk.
