Elite Helicopters was founded in the Autumn of 1995 by Glenn Curtis and Sharon Douglas when an opportunity arose to establish a Helicopter Operation at White Waltham Airfield on the outskirts of Maidenhead in Berkshire. In 2001 the Company expanded its breadth of operation when it took over both the Helicopter Charter Operation and Flight Training School at Goodwood Aerodrome in West Sussex from Stephenson Aviation and enabling Elite Helicopters to provide extensive coverage throughout the South and Central UK. The company has continued to grow in size and reputation and is now proud to hold ‘Preferred Operator’ status with Goodwood Estates. Last year we opened another base at Fairoaks Airfield to extend our coverage to the London area.
Elite Helicopters looks after and operates an extensive fleet of Helicopters on both Air Charter and Flight Training. The aircraft range from the training Robinson R22 and Cabri helicopters, through the Single Engine charter fleet of the Robinson R44, JetRanger, LongRanger, Eurocopter EC120 and Eurocopter AS350. The Twin Engine fleet is made up of the Agusta 109 Grand & Power Twin helicopter types which enable the company to carry out full IFR operations. Elite specialises in the management and operation of these aircraft for the individual owners taking care of all the day to day business associated with the ownership and operation of helicopters.
Elite also have the capability and equipment required to set up and operate Temporary Heliport Operations at special events, including the provision of a full Air Traffic Control Service. In 1998 Elite Helicopters secured the contract for the operation of the Heliport at Farnborough International and has continued to provide these services ever since. Elite also run all Ground Operations at the bi-annual Helitech Exhibition formerly held at Duxford and now being held at ExCel London. Elite also runs a heliport for their own operations in connection with the British Grand Prix.
The personnel at Elite Helicopters take pride in providing a total flying service for both private and corporate clients, offering a Charter service for business travel, corporate entertaining, aerial photography and filming, special occasions, and special events transfers. Elite offers a personal helicopter charter service to any destination within the U.K. (subject to landing site approval), and take pride in the fact that a complete package including the reservation of hotels, restaurants, hire or chauffer driven cars can all be arranged by the operations team.
