The UK is very much blessed with race circuits and below are just a few that we have found to be popular with clients or drivers travelling to by helicopter. Helicopter charter to a race circuit offers a memorable experience for those wishing to arrive in spectacular fashion or simply wishing to avoid the traffic.
We have been called upon for helicopter hire to race circuits by drivers testing cars or bikes as well as flying mechanics, team owners or the enthusiast.
HELICOPTER HIRE ANGLESEY CIRCUIT
Overlooking the Irish Sea and picturesque surroundings of Mount Snowdon, the lesser-known Anglesey Circuit is definitely one of the prettiest tracks in the UK. With its varied elevations, notably smooth surface and fantastic vantage points, this circuit is a favourite of professionals, amateurs and spectators alike.
HELICOPTER HIRE SILVERSTONE
Probably Britain’s most famous racing circuit, this Formula 1 track is built on a World War II airfield, nestled between the villages Silverstone and Whittlebury.

Set in the Cheshire village of Little Budworth, this 320-acre track is surrounded by picturesque countryside and plays host to car and bike competitions between April and October. With barely a flat stretch, Oulton has a seemingly never-ending sequence of climbs, curves and descents making for an exciting race.
