Our client required a helicopter from London to Cheltenham for the Gold Cup. Helicopter requirements for the Cheltenham races are one of the busiest weeks for helicopter charter, and a popular departure point is Battersea Heliport. Our client made the enquiry and booking for the helicopter in December (three months before the event). They always book early because of the limited availability of helicopter choices and because they can get the times they want.

This client wanted to arrive in style, so the AW139 was the helicopter to give them the wow factor.
