A Summer of Flying

The unexpected warm summer months have seen an increase in pleasure helicopter flights across Shropshire, with the ‘Scenic Severn Helicopter Tour’ and ‘Historic Shropshire Helicopter Tour' proving the most popular. The abundance of summer events has also kept the rotors running as Helitrip founder Steve Patterson explains;

“We have had an encouraging first summer, with a helicopter arrival providing the perfect choice for school proms, weddings, horserace meetings, the Grand Prix at Silverstone and V Festival. The sunshine has also led to many local residents taking advantage of the spectacular views of Shropshire which can only be offered when travelling by helicopter.”

To book your pleasure flight, visit or call the team on 0800 0121148.

Up in the Air – Is it time to rethink your business travel?

Helitrip is offering a new way to travel to your business commitments, providing benefits which are unrivalled by road and rail.

Research from the National Travel Survey 2012 shows that the average Brit conducts 28 business trips every year, totalling over 200 miles; with congestion, road works and unreliable public transport voiced as the biggest bugbears for business travellers.

Helitrip offers a stress-free alterative which avoids the traffic jams, train delays and parking worries.

Helicopters are fast, reliable and flexible, with the ability to land almost anywhere – ideal for the busy executive with multiple meetings across the UK in one day.

Helitrip founder Steve Patterson explains; “When travelling with colleagues, helicopter charter can be more cost-effective than you might think. Significantly reduced travel time eliminates the need for costly overnight stays and lost revenue from being away from the office.”

“For example, opting to charter a helicopter from Shrewsbury to Cardiff with 3 colleagues provides a saving of 5 hours and over £200, when compared with travelling by road with hotel expenses.”
