The city of Cracow

Sightseeing flights in the city of Cracow are organized from the Hotel Fero Express landing site (Bolesława Śmiałego 60, 30-398 Kraków).

Due to the Polish regulations for flying over cities and the proximity of the Krakow Balice international airport zone, scenic flights over the city of Cracow take place along the routes and at heights chosen by the helicopter pilot (these routes may differ significantly from the routes marked on the maps below). Flight over the center of Cracow is allowed at the start and approach to land, without crossing the Vistula towards the north.

It is possible to choose a different helicopter take-off and landing site than the Fero Express hotel landing site, where, in addition to the costs associated with arriving at the indicated helicopter landing site, additional fees may be charged for using the helipad. The arrival at the individually agreed take-off / landing site is additionally payable in accordance with the helicopter flight price lists below. The agreed arrival can also be settled by reducing the time of the selected scenic flight (minimum 30 minutes) by the time needed for the arrival / return of the helicopter from / to the Fero Express Hotel landing site, including the time needed to start and stop the helicopter twice (about 10 minutes). For example – a helicopter flight ordered for a sight-seeing flight directly from the “Polinar” landing site (Ofiar Dąbia 14, 31-567 Kraków) means that you have to pay an additional 15 minutes of flight to this helipad, assuming that the helicopter is currently stationed at the Fero Express hotel in Krakow.

Flights over Cracow – when can I take a scenic flight?

Sightseeing flights in the Cracow area are organized by HeliPoland after collecting the appropriate number of clients, together with current helicopter and pilot disposition at the “Fero” helipad (with the possibility of substituting the helicopter at the “Polinar” helipad) and under appropriate meteorological conditions. Flights performed on individual helicopter orders (at any time indicated by the customer) are based on the prices given below by helicopter type and flight time, taking into account the possible cost of arrival in the absence of a current availability in Cracow.

NOTE! Confirmation of the current helicopter disposition in Cracow city is possible up to a few days in advance. Confirmation of the appropriate weather conditions and thus also the final confirmation of the flight is possible in advance of not more than 3 days. If a helicopter is not available in Cracow, you can order a helicopter flight for a fee depending on the flight time (1 hour for R 44 and 50 minutes for AS 350 from the main base in Bielsko-Biała) and helicopter type (700 EUR per hour R44 flight and 1160 EUR per hour of flight AS350).

What else is important in organizing sightseeing flights?

All above-mentioned prices of scenic flights include the entire helicopter, regardless of the number of passengers. Free spaces can be replenished at the airstrip 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 type of helicopter to organize scenic flights, e.g. Eurocopter EC 130 for 6 passengers is priced individually to order.
