Blue Yonder Air Tours offer introductory flights around the North East, Northumberland and the Lake District. Northumberland has more castles than any other county and the greatest number of recognised battle sites. Fly over the castles and see where “Harry Potter” was filmed or perhaps a “Dambusters” run over Kielder or Derwent reservoir or even take in a city centre tour over Newcastle, Sunderland & Durham in our 7 seater aircraft so bring all the family along for the ride. We can also offer the VIP treatment too with wine and chocolates to make it that “special occasion”

This is an amazing experience and one not to be missed. Experiences from only £49 per person or why not book the whole aircraft for 6 people from only £89. This means the whole family can enjoy flying together; Blue Yonder Air Tours is the only operator in the UK able to offer this amazing family experience.

Blue Yonder Air Tours is a non-profit organisation which was created with the aim of promoting aviation and attracting new members from the North East and further afield, as well as inspiring future pilots and engineers using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

An “Introductory Flight” is an air tour around the local area. Flights are therefore not required to conform to the same regulations as those conducting Commercial Air Transport (CAT) / Public Transport (PT) operations, introductory flights do not count as training towards the grant of a
pilot’s licence.
