A bit more about us

The London Helicopter is the only helicopter tour company to fly over the capital from a central London location. We are also the UK’s first helicopter sightseeing service that gives people the freedom to book, pay and check-in online

London sightseeing flights have been available from the base at Redhill aerodrome near Gatwick airport since 2004. To meet growing demand for a more central departure location in the capital, we introduced flights in April 2013 from The London Heliport in Battersea

The London Helicopter is a privately owned and operated company

The very best helicopters and pilots

All of our flights are operated in accordance with our own Air Operators Certificate under the strict regulations set out by the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority. Our aircraft are state-of-the-art Airbus AS350 Single Squirrel helicopters. They undergo a strict regime of maintenance inspections, which includes daily pre-flight checks, maintenance after every 30 & 50 hours of flight time, and deeper inspections every two years

Our experienced pilots carry out a thorough regime of regular training and testing, and when not conducting charters and tours can also be found working as helicopter flight instructors and examiners

The London Helicopter has a crew of highly experienced pilots
