Pleasure flights 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.
Pennine are experienced helicopter fire fighters and have assisted the fire service with numerous forest and moorland fires over the last 20 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 specialize in Underslung Load Lifting, with friendly, skilled and knowledgeable staff to help you with every stage of the job.
Additional services include Aerial Filming and Photography, whether you are shooting for television and film or a corporate video, a helicopter provides the ultimate aerial platform.
