Ultimate Royal Ascot Helicopter Experience

Royal Ascot is undoubtedly the most prestigious date on the horseracing calendar thanks to its heritage, grandeur and unrivalled hospitality. The race meeting which is famously attended by the Queen and Royal Family attracts the world’s horseracing elite and 300,000 spectators during the 5 day event, held from 18th to 22nd June. What better way to make your day at Royal Ascot extra special than arriving by helicopter?

Helitrip is delighted to announce our partnership with Ascot Racecourse and Coworth Park Hotel to provide race-goers with the ultimate Royal Ascot experience. Start your day with a relaxing brunch on the terrace of The Barn at the 5* Coworth Park Hotel, before a short helicopter flight to Ascot Racecourse and a chauffeur driven BMW to your hospitality enclosure.

Choose from the prestigious Royal Enclosure package or Grandstand package, both which include a complimentary bar, delicious lunch, afternoon tea, betting facilities and unrivalled views of the racecourse. Enjoy a day of race excitement, fine dining and Champagne before your return flight to Coworth Park in the evening. The perfect way to treat a loved one, entertain clients or reward your staff.

Launch Day is a Flying Success!

The sun made a welcome appearance last Friday for the official launch of Helitrip. The event held at the Mytton & Mermaid Hotel in Shrewsbury was well-attended, with over 100 representatives from local businesses, together with The Mayor and Mayoress, Councillors and friends celebrating the exciting new business venture.

The Helitrip JetRanger landed in front of the hotel, providing a focal point for guests to explore on arrival with a glass of bubbly in hand.  This was followed by a brief presentation illustrating the time and cost-saving benefits of helicopter travel, a delicious lunch and informal drinks in the courtyard. 

An enjoyable afternoon was had by all and we received great feedback from the event.  Below are a few snaps from the afternoon; however a larger selection can be viewed on the Helitrip Facebook  and Pinterest page.
