Summer 2012 Events Calendar

Helicopter Hire to the top events of Summer 2012


Atlas Helicopters are all set to embark upon a season of outdoor activity by providing a private helicopter charter service to some of the UK’s top outdoor & sporting events. Although the Olympics will have a massive negative impact on the helicopter industry during July & August due to imposed airspace restrictions, there are still many great events to attend by helicopter.

The Epsom Derby, Royal Ascot, British Grand Prix, The Open Golf Championship, Glorious Goodwood and the Moto GP are just a few of the many sporting events Atlas Helicopters will be attending during the coming season, and what better way to arrive at one of these glamorous events than in your own private helicopter?


Non sporting events such as the CLA Game Fair, V-Festival, Leeds & Reading Festival, The Southampton Boat Show, Bestival, Isle of Wight Festival and Farnborough Airshow are further events to which Atlas Helicopters will be providing helicopter charter and helicopter hire services.

Chief Executive and pilot at Atlas, Mike Burns, said, “Our helicopter charter service is renowned for offering customers with not just a unique experience but with the highest levels of customer satisfaction. Customers come to us from all walks of life; some of our customers are VIP’s and others have never been in a helicopter before and want to add that extra special touch to an unforgettable day.”

Captain Burns added, “We are expecting the CLA Game Fair to be one of our busiest events in 2012 as we are offering both a helicopter charter and helicopter shuttle service to and from the event. This event historically has major traffic problems hence the popularity of our helicopter shuttle service. In addition, our interline helicopter charter service can collect the customer up from their private business jet and take them to and from the event.” Captain Burns added, “We love attending events such as the CLA Game Fair, as we get a wide variety of people requiring our services. We love flying and are keen to share the benefits and enjoyment of helicopter flight with everyone.”


If this was not enough to whet your appetite, there are plenty of other opportunities to experience the amazing thrill of helicopter hire, with a five star helicopter charter to well-known Country House Hotel Restaurants. Known as ‘Heli Dining’, Atlas whisk you and your guest(s) off to one of a multitude of popular country house hotel restaurants for lunch and return you later in the day.

With a wealth of other popular outdoor and sporting events on offer this Summer, if you are looking to arrive refreshed and relaxed in readiness for a full day’s entertainment, then possibly helicopter charter is the answer?
