Don’t get herded around airports, searched and prodded like cattle. Land by helicopter next to your private jet and walk straight on. We can book helicopters at very competitive prices for complete trips or as a transfer service; the minute your jet touches down we whisk you to your helicopter and fly you to your destination. We all know the frustrations of congested roads. With helicopters it’s normal to schedule several meetings in one day across the country, achieving 2 or 3 days work in one, plus avoiding the cost and boredom of hotel overnights. We are able to offer a number of aircraft types from the inexpensive single-engine Bell Jet Ranger, to the popular twin engine squirrel and incredibly sleek and fast Agusta 109 or Sikorsky 76.
It can be more cost effective to use a small aircraft than a helicopter, subject to the nearest suitable airport. Helicopters can of course land pretty much anywhere subject to the owners permission.
Agusta 109’s are the fastest helicopters available for hire.
