Beskids – Szczyrk, Wisla, Bielsko-Biala, Zar Mountain

Sightseeing flights in the Beskids are normally organized from the base Helipoland airfield EPBA (Cieszyńska 317 street, 43-300 Bielsko-Biała city). Szczyrk can be an additional place to organize scenic flights, especially during the most intense operation of Szczyrk’s winter sports infrastructure during winter holidays and Christmas time. Our Szczyrk landing site is located here.

It is possible to choose a different helicopter take-off and landing site than the Bukowina Tatrzańska helipad, where additional fees may be charged for using the helipad, e.g. EUR 50 at the Nosalowy Dwór Hotel in Zakopane. The arrival at the individually agreed take-off / landing site is additionally payable according to the price list below. The agreed arrival can also be settled by reducing the time selected scenic flight (minimum 30 minutes) by the time needed for the arrival / return of the helicopter from / to the Hotel Bukovina landing site, including the time needed for twice start and stop the helicopter (about 10 minutes). For example, substitution of a helicopter on individual order from Bielsko-Biała to Szczyrk is a total of almost 20 minutes of flight.

Final confirmation of the helicopter stationing according to the appropriate weather conditions is possible in advance of no more than 3 days. The helicopter arrives in Szczyrk from the main base in Bielsko-Biała. The arrival of the helicopter can always be ordered individually for a fee depending on the type of helicopter (PLN 800 for the R44 flight and PLN 1600 for the AS350 flight).

The availability of the AS 350 helicopter at the airport in Bielsko-Biała is often limited and its use requires individual organization of a flight from the Katowice region for EUR 1160.

The AS350 helicopter is faster than the R 44 helicopter, which makes it possible to cover greater distances in the purchased time option, and thanks to increased tolerance to wind power, this machine is more suited to flights in the highest parts of the mountains.

What else is important in organizing sightseeing flights?

All the above-mentioned prices of scenic flights include the entire helicopter (all seats), regardless of the number of passengers. Free seats can be replenished at the helipad during ongoing flights, or if we have registered those willing to partially fill the helicopter, we will inform ourselves about the possibility of flying on the remaining free spaces.

Reservation of another helicopter type for the purpose of organizing sightseeing flights, e.g. Eurocopter EC 130 helicopter for 6 passengers, is priced individually (arrival of an EC 130 helicopter at a price of not less than EUR 1500).
