Berlin from above
In the years 1948 and 1949, hundreds of aeroplanes formed the “Airbridge to Berlin” and supplied the population with coal, potatoes and bread. Soon the Berliners affectionately named the allied aeroplanes “candy bombers”. Enjoy the adventure of one of the most impressive sightseeing flights in a  “candy bomber”.

A flight in a helicopter is always a special adventure for the young and the young at heart. Don’t miss out on the view and take a sightseeing flight with up to 4 persons or, even better, you yourself assume control and operate the helicopter on your own  - of course under the instruction of a professional.
