After football, horse racing is the second most popular spectator sport in the UK. So, it should come as no surprise there are many horse racing events nationwide and year round. If you want to travel cross country to give a new racecourse a go, it could take half a day to get there. Using a helicopter charter to get to your next horse racing event shaves hours off that time.

Why get a helicopter charter to the racecourse?
The most obvious benefit of getting a helicopter anywhere, is that it’s usually the fastest way to get there. You can fly right above people stuck in traffic jams, or waiting on delayed trains, and get there with ease.
Getting a horse racing helicopter charter from Apollo Air Services means you’ll also enjoy the following benefits:
- Make a statement- a day at the races is the perfect opportunity to dress up. When you pull out all the stops with your outfit, arriving via helicopter gives you an edge over everyone else. Descending from the skies to the racecourse is sure to make a lasting impression.
- Transport to any racecourse in the UK - with our fleet of AgustaWestland AW 109 helicopters, we’re able to take you to any racecourse in the UK. Because they are twin engine, they are able to fly further so, you aren’t limited to courses within a certain range. They can also fly safely in any weather conditions, so nothing should stop you getting to your event.
- Attend prestigious events - with our helicopter charter services, you’re not just limited to your local racecourse. We have experience getting clients to the most prestigious events in the horse racing calendar including The Grand National, Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot.
