Are you an avid racing fan? A keen bettor or enjoy a taste of the high life? With the last major horse racing event of the year nearly upon us, why join the hoards of travellers on the congested roads and unreliable rail networks, when a helicopter charter service to the Newbury Winter Festival really is more credit less crunch?
Chief Executive and pilot at Atlas Helicopters, the specialists in private helicopter hire outlines, “Those with a taste for the high life regularly take helicopter flights to all of the major sporting events, but that isn’t to say that it is a costly alternative. There is often a misconception that helicopter hire is extremely expensive, but many are realising that this is not the case at all. By the time you have paid your fuel costs, driven miles and started to look rather dishevelled as you arrive at your destination, you could have arrived feeling cool and collected without the wear & tear on your vehicle and hours spent in queues of traffic. What better way to impress that all important client perhaps?
Running from Thursday 24th – Saturday 26th November 2011, the festival will attract some 50,000 people over the 3-day event with millions of pounds being wagered on the outcome the 3-day race card.
42-year-old James Corbett from London who visited the event last year he said, “The Newbury Winter Festival is without a doubt one of the best events on the sporting calendar, but last year’s festival proved to be a real headache for me and my friends. We got stuck in the most horrendous traffic and we nearly missed the start of the race card, we all said after last year’s experiences that should we re-visit the festival we would certainly consider a helicopter charter service as it is so much less trouble than driving – and great fun also!!”
Mr Burns from the firm who have a huge database of departure sites added, “Visiting The Newbury Winter Festival, is one of those events that requires a little flair and what better way to execute this than to arrive as a VIP in your own helicopter? The Newbury Festival is a wonderful experience, that’s why it is a shame to start the day in a traffic jam arriving late for the day’s first races.”
Not only does helicopter travel to a sporting event avoid the stress of airports, traffic jams and public transport, by cruising at speeds of up to 120 knots and a maximum range of 400 miles, helicopter charter can allow you to make multiple visits in one day, and arrive at The Newbury Winter Festival with no fuss, no agitation and certainly no worry of missing what this year’s festival has to offer.
