 Arrive better with
Cardinal Helicopter Services


Whether you are looking to privately charter a helicopter to avoid road chaos, reach a remote location or simply to arrive in style, Cardinal will create a bespoke VIP travel package to suit your requirements.

Welcome aboard. Fast, safe and luxurious, Cardinal provides point-to-point day or night travel services in all but the most extreme weather conditions.

Choosing to travel by helicopter allows people with busy schedules to be far more productive and able to achieve more in a working day. Cardinal will pick you up and take you to a meeting, wait for you, then return you back home or to your office.

We provide a fast, luxurious, stress-free way to travel. It can also be more cost effective, compared to having a team of well-paid busy executives sitting on a train all day, or risking delays on the road. And it’s a lot more exciting too…

Our helicopter is Sikorsky’s most popular model: an S76C++, twin-engine state-of-the-art aircraft. We can accommodate up to 8 passengers – 6 in comfort. It is equipped to the very highest specification to ensure our clients are able to travel in a safe, quiet and comfortable environment – you’ll arrive at your destination relaxed and at a time that suits you.

Aircraft Management

We can cover all the day-to-day aspects of owning a helicopter, arranging maintenance, hangarage and operational bookings all in an easy-to-understand and transparent way.

We provide an excellent service with transparent pricing for our VIP owner base, something which is unique to the UK charter market and achieved through our unique Cardinal crew and management packages.

Our helicopter owners enjoy 24/7/365 aircraft and crew availability for a fraction of the standard rates, with maintenance fully managed by us. The expense of owning an aircraft is offset by external charter revenue raised when the owners are not using their helicopter.

We fully offset all operational expense to some aircraft owners, but this does depend on their personal use.

Aircraft Procurement

Buying something without perhaps being an expert can be daunting. Talk to us about your needs and we’ll do all we can to help. We do everything in an honest and transparent fashion: copies of receipts are available at every stage from a can of oil right up to building a new hangar.


We provide discreet, expert impartial industry knowledge. Future-proof your investment or simply ask our opinion.

Aircraft Registration

We operate both UK-registered and US-registered aircraft and can help you decide on the best option for your needs.

We deliver the ultimate luxury helicopter experience

Cardinal’s luxurious state-of-the-art helicopters are the ultimate mode of personal travel, or an unbeatably stylish way to treat and impress any important clients you are taking to a corporate hospitality event.

Travelling to the event in our superb aircraft ensures you avoid any traffic problems on the way there, plus the inevitably long queues on the way home – especially at large events attended by thousands of people. If your event finishes early, or over-runs, no problem – we’ll be ready when you are.

For larger groups, Cardinal can organise a private helicopter shuttle service to transfer a number of smaller groups quickly and efficiently to large sporting, music or other events.

Simply tell us the details and we’ll organise the itinerary to suit your needs for a trouble-free, seamless service. We can even brand the exterior of our helicopter with your corporate logo, if you desire, to create a truly bespoke luxury travel experience.

We also provide catering – on board the aircraft we carry a selection of drinks and refreshments which can be tailored to your request.

Experience you can trust

Whether you’re looking for an outstanding pilot or need confidential, trustworthy help to purchase your first aircraft, Cardinal offers the best people and best advice. We can share an in-depth knowledge of the industry and help you avoid pitfalls that could lead to a very expensive mistake.


Aviation never sits still, and neither do we. We’re available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year – whatever you need, whenever you need it.


All our services are handled in a strictly confidential manner. Having worked for government officials and a long list of dignitaries and VIPs, we are well rehearsed in the levels of discretion demanded of our services.

We can provide additional associated services

If you have any specific requirements, please pass on your wishes and we’ll do all we can to help. From accommodation and personal protection to security and personal assistance – all delivered professionally and confidentially.


Fly in luxury. Fly in style. Fly Cardinal
