We recommend wearing dark coloured clothes as they tend to reflect much less in the helicopter large windows and not ruin your pictures. 

Avoid wearing loose items, such as scarves or hats, that may be prone to blowing around in the wind. It is advisable to leave behind bulk bags or unnecessary belongings, as space inside the helicopter is limited. 

How to get to Redhill Airport?

The easiest way to get there is to take a cab from London to the airport. If you wish, you can also take a train at London Bridge Railway station to Redhill train station. From there, you'll need to hail a cab to close the short distance between the train station and Redhill airport.
