Happy customers capturing pictures of their London sights flight with their EBG Helicopter pilot, Bob.  

A lovely experience, a great way to see London and if you haven’t flown in a helicopter before certainly a must do item.  

Contact EBG Helicopters for details on the London sight tours amongst others.  

EBG Helicopters also provide point to point Helicopter charters with a fleet of different types of helicopters to suit most needs.

Early on Friday 31st August the sun was out, the clouds were few and the trip to Le Touquet from Redhill was going ahead.  

Out on the pads were 2 x G2’s, 1 x R22 and 1 x R44.  Once these aircraft depart with their pilots and passengers another 3 x R44’s would be wheeled out onto the pads ready to lift and the journey to France.

Planning and preparation!

Planning is key to most activities and nevermore so than coordinating a large number of pilots with a large number of aircraft. 

Below is a time-lapse video of the activity on the morning to get the aircraft out onto the pads and away.
