There’s nothing more romantic than a helicopter flight with the love of your life. Soaring thousands of feet up in the air, with nothing but a beautiful view in every direction, a helicopter proposal can be an ideal way to propose to your partner. Yet there are some things to keep in mind if you want to pull off your proposal successfully.
Be aware of any fears or phobias of flying. If your partner is terrified of planes, for example, a helicopter proposal might not be the best idea. If your partner is prone to getting carsick or seasick, then motion sickness can be an issue while up in a helicopter. Having the right medication on hand is a good idea in this case. Remember that it’s your responsibility to ensure that your partner feels safe, and comfortable.
The Right Moment
If you want to propose while flying over a specific location (say the place where you had your first date) then be sure that you know when you’ll be over that spot so you can point it out to your partner. Talk to the pilot ahead of time, and ask for a subtle signal so that you can be sure to make the moment perfect. You don’t want to be looking out at the ground the entire time, frantically scanning for the location. If you don’t have a specific spot in mind, then be aware of the flight time. If you definitely want to propose while up in the air, then be sure you have enough time to do so.
Secure the Ring
While helicopter flights are usually smooth, there can be a certain amount of turbulence in windy weather. Some helicopters are completely closed to outside air, and some are open. Ask ahead of time what sort of craft you’ll be flying in. Even if you’re in a helicopter that is completely closed to the outside air, its important that you keep the engagement ring secure. Helicopters are full of tight spaces, and its easy to imagine something as small as an engagement ring getting lost in one of the myriad crevices during a particularly rough flight.
You can ensure that your ring is safe by keeping it in a secure ring box like the flat engagement ring boxes from Ringstash.com. For extra safety, you can tie a ribbon around the ring and secure it to the box, until you place it on your partner’s finger.
