Eglinton ‘Game of Thrones’ chopper tours to lift off thanks to Council boost

The owner of a Londonderry helicoptor tour firm says a local Council initiative has been pivotal in helping it launch a new 'Game of Thrones Tour' from its Eglinton helipad.

Jason Porter of Cutting Edge Helicopters says the Rural Tourism Development Programme, which ran from January 2014 to June 2015 and was part financed by Derry City and Strabane District Council, with matched funding from Invest Northern Ireland and the European Regional Development Fund, has been a great 'lift.'
