Cardinal Helicopter Services celebrates its first anniversary in February after a busy year including over 141 flights to date, a new heliport opening at City Airport & Heliport and even helping Father Christmas give his reindeers a day off to pick up Christmas letters from school-children in the North West.

Over the year, all the flights have left on time and without problem, giving Cardinal an outstanding 100% serviceability score for 2011-2012. This year’s flights have involved flying to numerous events such as the Grand National at Aintree in April, Royal Ascot races and the Glastonbury festival in June, the Formula 1 Grand Prix at Silverstone in July among many others. Cardinal has also flown a number of businesses to various locations around the UK and to international airports allowing those flying to avoid the time-consuming roads and ensure on-going flights are not missed and has even transported organs in medical emergencies!

Cardinal is able to offer its services to a number of events taking place throughout 2012 including the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, horseracing events at numerous racecourses around the UK, FA Cup semi-finals and final, the MotoGP and Grand Prix at Silverstone, golf competitions and various music festivals throughout the summer. Cardinal can create bespoke VIP travel packages for these events and many more, please contact us with your requirements.

Cardinal Helicopter Services, based at City Airport & Heliport, Manchester, is part of The Peel Group and a sister company of EventCity and MediaCityUK. The Cardinal aircraft is Sikorsky’s latest model S76C++ 8-passenger twin-engine helicopter capable of flying in most weather conditions day or night. Our aircraft is equipped to the very highest specification ensuring you travel in a safe, quiet and comfortable environment – arriving at your destination relaxed and at a time that suits you.

Captain Richard Cove, Chief Pilot for Cardinal Helicopter Services comments, “Our first year has definitely been a resounding success. When we began, we were unsure if there was the demand for our services but our aim of providing a high class VIP charter service for the future has been well received.

“Our clientele this year has included heads of state, peers of the realm, captains of industry and business people. Looking to future, we will continue supporting our existing client base and look forward to welcoming new customers and providing them with the first class, personal service that Cardinal is becoming synonymous for.”
