All about the trip
Departing from the Ayazaga airfield, you will begin by heading southeast before reaching the F.S.M. Bridge, which famously connects both sides of Istanbul and the continents of Europe and Asia. The magnificent steel suspension bridge spans 1.5km and is likely to be your first epic photo of the trip.
Continuing south along the Bosphorus strait, you will then see the Anadolu Hisari fortress, the ancient Küçüksu and the Beylerbeyi Palaces. As we pass the Military School, we then make our way over to the European side of the city.
Flying over historical buildings such as the Galata Tower, the Dolmabahce, the Ciragan Palaces and the Rumeli Hisari fortress; you will now have another opportunity to take some unique and memorable aerial photos.
As the adventure continues, we head towards the historical peninsula of Istanbul and its many treasures. These include the Suleymaniye Mosque, the Beyazit Tower, the Grand Bazaar, the racetrack, St. Sophia Cathedral, and of course the famously-beautiful, Blue Mosque.
We complete the trip by flying over the Gold Horn, the Taskim Palace, and then finally, over the Galatasaray and Inonu football stadiums. After this we return back to the Ayazaga airfield to complete the 16-minute trip.
With so much to see in all directions, please remember to charge your camera batteries and bring an extra memory card with you. We know from first-hand experience that you will want to take more photos than you originally intended!
Also, don’t forget to bring some sunglasses too, as it can get quite bright when flying over the river on summer days. Remember to arrive 30 mins earlier than the flight time as there will be a briefing on helicopter safety from your pilot. Or if you prefer, we can provide collection/drop-off to your hotel accommodation; just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange this service.
