Flying to Santa’s grotto

We've all seen Father Christmas in a department store, garden centre or maybe a steam train, but Santa has just got a whole lot cooler!

Now you can visit the big man by helicopter. Gloucestershire Airport is pleased to announce that Father Christmas will be touching down at the Jet Age Museum in December and Rise Helicopters will once again be offering helicopter rides to his grotto.

This year's Christmas celebration in the skies will take off on the weekends of 9th and 10th and 16th and 17th December, with flights departing approximately every 15 minutes from 11am until 3.30pm.

The trip will include a five-minute flight from the airport terminal building, landing at the Jet Age museum in a Jet Ranger helicopter, followed by a magical meeting with Santa himself at the museum's very special airliner grotto. Every child will receive a gift from Santa.

Flights cost £35 per person (adult or child) and the helicopter seats up to four passengers. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

Santa will also be happy to welcome visitors not wishing to take the helicopter ride, who can visit his Jet Age Museum grotto for a donation of £6.

To book the flights, visit the Gloucestershire Airport Terminal building or call 01452 857700.

Here at Punchline we think this might be rather popular with some much bigger boys and girls!
