Hire a helicopter to make a statement on your wedding day!
You and your husband or wife to be can hire your very own helicopter for your wedding day. You can be picked up from the church, a nearby airport or at a location near to your home and then dropped off in style at your wedding venue to the amazement of your friends and family.
To give you an idea of budget, the typical cost in hiring a single engine helicopter for a wedding is between £1,000 - 1,500 and a twin engine helicopter £3,000 - £4,000*. There is a legal requirement to use a twin engine helicopter when flying into congested areas as well as some landing sites. Please keep this in mind so that you can get the most cost effective quote for your big day!
Hire a helicopter in 3 easy steps
Step 1 - Confirm Landing Site
It is important to check with your wedding venue that it has a suitable location to land a helictoper at. There must be a clear space unobstructed by trees/buildings with a clear route for the aircraft to safely approach and depart. If landing on private land then written permission from the landowner must be obtained before we can provide a quote for your charter.
Step 2 - Confirm Pick Up Site
Pick up from an airport or local aerodrome normally means you will get your quote quicker. If this is not possible then the same rules regarding the landing site also apply for the pick up location and again for private sites permission from the landowner must be obtained.
Step 3 - Get a Quote

But what happens if the weather lets us down?
One of the advantages of living in the United Kingdom is that we have great unpredictable weather! Although this might put a bit of a dampener on the day, helicopters are able to fly perfectly safely in a lot of different type of weather conditions. If it does turn out that the weather prohibits the charter from taking place on the day we will contact you as soon as possible so other arrangements can be made.

We have a large variety of helicopters available to charter for your wedding day whether it is just for the two of you or to transport the entire wedding party. Below are some of the options you can pick from for your special day, click on the link below the image of the helicopter to see more pictures and additional details about the aircraft.
The Robinson R44 is a single engine, four-seat light helicopter perfect for short distance flights for up 4 passengers. The R44 has hydraulically assisted flight controls allowing for a smooth ride, responsive handling and excellent altitude performance.
The R44 is widely available for charter throughout the UK, Europe and USA and is an ideal choice of aircraft for Wedding Charters and Horse Racing Charters as well as other short distance business and leisure flights.
The Robinson R66 is a 5 seat, single engine light helicopter capable of transporting up to 5 passengers a distance of up to 350nm. The R66 has increased reserve power as well as improved altitude performance compared to its predecessor (the R44); it also benefits from an extra seat as well as dedicated baggage space.
The R66 is a popular helicopter available for charter in most areas of the UK as well as the rest of the world. It is an excellent choice for the majority of short distance business and leisure flights and is a popular choice for Wedding Helicopter Hire as well as flying to racecourses such as Ascot, Aintree and Newmarket.
The Airbus Helicopters AS355 (aka Twin Squirrel) is a twin-engine light helicopter capable of transporting up to six passengers. With a maximum range of approximately 700km (435 miles) it is an ideal choice for journeys of short and longer distances, it can also be used to land in relatively built up areas with it being a twin engine aircraft.
We have sourced the AS355 for varying types of private charter such as business flights, pleasure/sightseeing flights and wedding helicopter charters. Twin engine aircraft are usually more expensive to charter than their single engine counterparts but are essential for journeys for larger groups or those needing to land in areas unsuitable for single engine helicopters.
