From London to Cheltenham By Helicopter.
Wow, it takes a long time if you drive from Central London to the Cheltenham racecourse, 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 consider the time of up to 1 hour trying to park your car!
The Cheltenham Festival is on between March 1 and March. It contains arguably the most critical jump race in the racing calendar, with over 4.1 million pounds in prize money and 250 thousand people attending 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 take you only 35 minutes to get straight to the heart of the racing action from the centre of London.
Passengers often also Charter Jets from abroad, i.e. France and Paris Le Bourget, flying directly into Farnborough airport and 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 without pulling all your hair out in traffic jams – FLY.
