Established in 1991, Pennine Helicopters Ltd are based in Saddleworth, Greater Manchester and offer a wide variety of helicopter services. We pride ourselves in offering a service which is as unique and individual as our customers’ requirements and all of our services can be completely tailored to your specific needs.

We specialize in Environmental / Utility Commercial Work for Aerial Fire Fighting and Underslung Load Lifting with knowledgeable staff to help you with every stage of the job, even if you have not used a helicopter before! For Aerial Fire Fighting we have experienced pilots and have assisted the fire service with numerous forest and moorland fires over the last 25 years or so. Our helicopters are invaluable in remote areas which fire appliances simply cannot access. Importantly, we carry water to the scene of the wildfire, and put out fires using underslung Kestrel / Bambi buckets. Wildfires can cause substantial collateral damage in addition to endangering life.

We also provide Charter Flights where this allows you to reach your destination much quicker than by road, and to arrive in style. If you are looking to impress a potential client with Corporate Flights, using a helicopter a guaranteed way to make a lasting impression.

Famous for our Themed Helicopter Pleasure Flights, these are now run by Pleasure Flights Ltd, the next family generation of Pennine Helicopters. Pleasure Flights make an ideal gift or treat for yourself, and normally take place at weekends and on Bank Holidays, but if you wish to make a mid-week booking please call to discuss your requirements. If you have a particular area you wish to cover, we can ask the pilot to track over your chosen spot.

The taster 5 minute ‘Buzz flights’ start from £39.00 per person and we also offer a 10 minute experience flight. Our highly popular 15, 20 and 30 minute ‘themed’ flights make a superb gift and offer breath-taking views of some of Northern England’s most stunning landscapes.
