The New Shooting Season has Begun
The new shooting season is once again upon us, and there’s never been a better time to get out to the country estates and indulge in some good old-fashioned fieldsports.
We are flying shooting parties to Dartmoor, the North Yorkshire Moors, Wales and the Scottish Borders in luxury and in record time with helicopter flights from Atlas Helicopters.
Helicopter travel is ideal for both small and large shooting parties, with each helicopter in our fleet providing room for at least five passengers and our Sikorsky S-76 able to carry up to thirteen!
Shooting Equipment and Dogs Allowed
ou’re welcome to bring shooting equipment (including guns and ammunition) along with you, and fieldsport dogs can be carried on board safely. A special doggie pack is provided for our canine passengers, which includes a comfy bed, a bowl of water and a non-squeaky dog toy.
We recently carried out a number of flights for shooting enthusiasts, including a party of three who were heading to the stunning Mayshiel Estate in the Scottish Borders (pictured above and below).
Their 315-mile flight from Kings Lynn in Norfolk to the estate in East Lothian took just an hour and a half, and they were able to bring their shotguns along with them.
Fying Shooting Parties Across the UK
Other shooting parties from London enlisted Atlas Helicopters to take them to Dartmoor and Exmoor respectively.
From London Heliport these flights take just an hour in our new Agusta A109E (or an hour and fifteen minutes in our Twin Squirrel helicopter).
The Agusta A109E is the newest addition to the Atlas Helicopters fleet is capable of cruising at a smooth 140 knots, allowing you to reach your shooting destination quickly and easily.
