With domestic business travel in the UK being hugely constricted by the endless delays on the railway lines that run through our country, there's no wonder that high flying executives are taking to the skies.
Helicopters are a fast, reliable and efficient way of getting to and from locations that fixed wing aircraft may not be able to get access to. You can fly closer to city centres, land directly on private land and dodge weather that may normally divert fixed wing aircraft.
Seating between 2 and 12 passengers the private helicopter is the ultimate way to travel.
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.
