Wow it takes a long time if you drive from Central London to Cheltenham race course which thousands will be doing for the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March. The drive will be as long as 2 hours 30 minutes which does not take into account the time of up to 1 hour trying to park your car !

Cheltenham New Year Festival

The Cheltenham festival is on between March 15th to March 18th and contains arguably the single most important jump race in the racing calendar with prize money over 4.1 million pounds and 250 thousand people to attend over the festival. This race is called the Cheltenham Gold cup.

Each year Charter-A and its air charter services of Helicopters and Jets help the great and the good avoid the traffic in getting to this prestigious event. When arriving in one of our Helicopters from, for example London Battersea heliport, it will have taken you only 35 minutes to get straight to the heart of the racing action from the centre of London.

Passengers very often also Charter Jets from abroad ie France, Paris Le Bourget flying directly into Farnborough airport then transferring by helicopter charter to Cheltenham racecourse helipad. The journey time by private jet from Paris Le Bourget is 45 minutes and by Helicopter Charter from Farnborough is 25 minutes giving a total travel time including walking to your private aircraft of a leisurely hour and a half.

So to get to the Cheltenham Gold cup with out pulling all your hair out sat in the traffic jams – FLY.
