Once you’ve settled into the futuristic glass pod it will gently glide you up to your destination in the sky! It will then remain there for around 15-20 minutes, allowing you to take in the breathtaking views! This is an opportunity for you to take those pictures and capture the memories. If it’s a clear day you may even be able to spot the Isle of Wight! This really is the perfect experience for all the family with live commentary during the flight also making it an educational day out!

Prepare for landing

You will then be taken back down where you can depart from your flight and view the pictures taken of you earlier that day! There is also an exhibition room where you can view pictures of the BAi360 being built. Plus, there is a gift shop where you can purchase a souvenir to remember your day out!

  3. Open Monday-Thursday 10:30 am-6:30 pm and Friday to Sunday 10:30 am-8:30 pm
  4. For sunset views make sure to book the right time
