Helicharter Wales wants to make helicopter travel and the Welsh countryside available to everyone.
The company, which has been in business for three years, flies a Bell Helicopter Jet Ranger. In addition to transporting business executives between locations, the owner sees the tourism potential in showing off Walesâ€™ castles from the air.
President Alison Belton chauffeurs wedding parties and spectators who want to see the Welsh countryside or coastland. Phill Hall-Davis, the companyâ€™s chief pilot, said Helicharter Wales is hoping to purchase a bigger aircraft. It has been looking at a twin-engine helicopter and is considering a Eurocopter AS355 Twin-Star or a BO105. The company flies about 100 pleasure flights a month; there has been interest in adding flights to Ireland.
