Why You Need a Helicopter to the Epsom Derby and Royal Ascot
With the next two major sporting events 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 Derby and Royal Ascot really is within easy reach?
Are you an avid racing fan, a keen bettor or enjoy a taste of the high life? With the next two major sporting events 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 Derby and Royal Ascot really is within easy reach?
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 and only for the privileged few. There is often a misconception that helicopter charter 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 additional cost of fuel, overnight hotel costs & car parking etc.
Captain Mike Burns, of Atlas Helicopters, who have a huge database of departure sites added, “Visiting The Derby and/or Royal Ascot, are two of those events that require a little flair and what better way to execute this than to arrive as a VIP in your own luxury helicopter? Helicopter charter & helicopter hire is a wonderful experience, that’s why it is a shame to start the day in a traffic jam arriving late for the days 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 130 knots and a maximum range of 400 miles, helicopter charter can allow you to make multiple visits in one day, and arrive at The Derby and / or Royal Ascot with no fuss, no agitation and certainly no worry of missing any of the day’s racing programme.
Atlas Helicopters will have a luxurious fleet of four AS355 Twin Squirrel’s, one Bell 206L LongRanger and a newly added Agusta A109 Power on hand to take all those avid racing fans to this year’s biggest events, so what are you waiting for?
