Everything is beautifully organized. Arrived in our car with no problems. Left in the parking lot right next to the site. We drove inside and near the entrance. Comfortable . We arrived in an hour.

Great experience, friendly staff. The pilot showed us the main parts of Dubai, would for sure recommend. We took a taxi to the police academy and there was a car waiting for us there who then took us to the helicopter place. This was just a 2 min car ride.

Wow, that was a great thing. We can only recommend it. I imagined the flight to be worse, but it was very calm and there was no fear of heights. Made a great video. You will be picked up in front of the Academy with a small shuttle bus, because you are not allowed on the premises yourself. Afterwards you have to organize a taxi. Don't forget your ID. One sits with the pilot and four in the back on a bench. Saw two helicopters in action. So that's all the important information I think. Have fun.

We taxied to Police Academy - Jumeirah and were shuttled to the helipad 45 minutes before departure. After a quick registration and safety briefing, we were off. Flying a helicopter is a great experience in itself - but even more so over Dubai! Gladly again!
