R44 helicopter at The Bull in Ticehurst

Flying through the winter

We’ve had a busy summer after a year of lockdowns having flown over 625 hours since 1 June.

But despite the nights drawing in and the weather becoming more changeable we get some great flying days this time of year.

The picture above was taken by one of our pilots on a lunchtime fly-out last week at The Bull Inn at Ticehurst. The weather that day was a gentle south-westerly wind with broken clouds at around 1400 ft – not so great for small fixed-wing aircraft which like to fly a bit higher but no problem for light helicopters. 

Flying into pubs is a great way to use your helicopter private pilot licence (PPL H). We’re able to recommend places to go and give tips on how to get in and out.
