Travelling to the Isle of Wight by helicopter

Travelling to the Isle of Wight by road is lengthy, not least because of the congested ferry crossing which tends to be booked out well in advance during the summer season. If you were travelling by car from London the journey would take you around 2 hours on a good day to Portsmouth or Southampton and then an hour on the ferry assuming that you have booked far enough in advance.

In contrast to this when you charter a helicopter to fly to the Isle of Wight from London it takes around 30 minutes and you get to see this jewel of an island from the air on the way to your landing site.
