The new venture provides bespoke helicopter flights for business trips, airport transfers, corporate entertaining and leisure tours.

The launch will be celebrated in style on 26th April with a flight across Shropshire before landing at The Mytton and Mermaid Hotel for an informal lunch, presentation and networking.

Founders Steve Patterson and Phil Jones both hold a private pilot’s licence and regularly fly in their spare time. They created Helitrip to combine their business interests with their passion for aviation.

Steve comments: “We are delighted to officially launch Helitrip after many months of planning and preparation. Our vision is to be the UK’s leading helicopter charter company and the first choice for corporate travel. We have ambitious plans to grow both within the Midlands and across the UK.”

Steve continues: “Helicopters provide a flexible, quick and economical way to travel around the UK. Whether you have meetings in multiple locations, need a swift airport transfer or simply want escape to a country house hotel for the weekend.”
