Throughout the UK there are many horse racing events that take place and below are just some of the popular events we at Charter-a in the past have flown keen racing enthusiast, owners and jockeys.

Charter-a work on providing helicopter hire and helicopter charter to racecourses throughout the UK and occasionally to France. Helicopter hire is a unique, fast and efficient method of travel. Especially with the popular meetings such as Cheltenham, Royal Ascot, Goodwood and Aintree for the Grand National

Cheltenham Helicopters


We provide helicopter charter to Cheltenham racecourse and in particular the Cheltenham Festival which always takes place in March.

This event is very popular and regular clients tend to book at least 8 months in advance to avoid disappointment.

As the Cheltenham Festival is in March we can only use twin engine helicopters such as the AS355 Twin Squirrel, Agusta A109 Grand and the Eurocopter EC135.

Helicopter Ascot

Helicopter hire Ascot

Vehicle access to Royal Ascot has historically been challenging; there are frequently very long lines outside and horrendous traffic congestion even getting to the Ascot race course parking lot.

The simplest approach is to travel to Ascot by helicopter. We provide a helicopter charter service in which you rent a helicopter and one of our expert pilots flies you directly into Royal Ascot over the traffic so you can enjoy a fantastic day of horse racing and socialising.

For instance, to accommodate our clients’ budgets, flights from London Battersea to Royal Ascot take roughly 20 minutes.
