Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the maximum weight your helicopters can transfer?

The Atlas Helicopters’ fleet is comprised of Agusta and Airbus, twin-engine aircraft, and the maximum weight they can carry is approximately 500KG (subject to how much fuel would have to be carried).

2. How can this weight be distributed?

Loading helicopter with cases of wine

If the items are a regular shape you can stow quite a lot into a helicopter, for example, we regularly carry 50 cases of English sparkling wine.

3. What is the maximum size of freight?

1m x 1m x 1m

4. How far can you fly in a helicopter?

You can fly as far as you like but we’ll need to schedule refueling stops and there becomes a point where it would be quicker and more economical for you to travel by charter aircraft.

Our friendly Operations Team will advise and can also arrange this for you. Call them on 01256 635000.

5. How quickly can you reach a destination?

Helicopter flight times from London

You can fly from anywhere in the UK, the map above gives flight time estimates from London.

It also depends on the weight of the freight but if you needed to send something important such as documents or small items of equipment then:

  • London to Liverpool or Manchester is 65 minutes
  • Paris is 85 minutes
  • Cardiff around 55 minutes.

For example, if you needed to get some camera equipment from London to the middle of Dartmoor, it would take about 65 minutes – by car this 200-mile trip would take around 4 hrs and 30 minutes.

6. Can I add passengers to the charter?

Helicopter luggage hold

Yes, you can. As with freight, the size of the party determines the quickness of the flight and the costs.

5. How close can the helicopter land to the pick-up point?

Our friendly Operations Team will find the closest possible place to pick up and land. As you can imagine there are strict rules and regulations regarding helicopter flight, if a nearby landing site is not available we can arrange transfers between you and the aircraft.
