Cheltenham Festival

Taking place on the 12th-15th March 2019, the Cheltenham Festival is one of the biggest horse racing events in the UK and offers four days of extraordinary horse racing.

The festival opens on the 12th March with Champion Day where you will hear the famous roar. The 13th marks Ladies Day where last year #colourmemarch was trending for the best dressed competition so make sure to get your glad rags on. On the 14th St.Patrick’s Thursday you can expect an atmosphere like no other, live music is spread all around the festival for a typically Irish affair. Then last but not least the 15th is Gold Cup Day the pinnacle of jump racing is not to be missed!

Every year we charter helicopters to Cheltenham from all across the UK. Last year was one of the busiest we have had, transporting over 100 passengers across our fleet of nine Helicopters.

Cheltenham racecourse has a purpose built heliport which allows our passengers to fly directly in to the racecourse, with just under an hours flight from Manchester and around 30 minutes from London, we can offer you door-to-door hassle-free charters to get you to and from the festival as quickly as possible.

We operate four types of twin engine aircraft, seating from five to seven passengers. These include AS355’s, an AW109SP, B429 and S76. Each aircraft offers a spacious seating area with high-end leather and a baggage area in case you are staying over near to the festival.

Our bespoke quotations mean that we can tailor make your travel experience, picking you up directly from a chosen location throughout the UK with ease. We can also provide multiple pick-ups and/or shuttles if you are traveling in large groups.
