Polar Helicopters the coolest way to travel


As per government guidelines, from 4th July 2020, we are pleased to say that are able to offer:

  • Student PPL and CPL lessons
  • Self-fly hire
  • One to one trial lessons.
  • Sightseeing Flights booked as a group where all flyers are within the same household or 'bubble'.
We will unfortunately not be able to resume shared Sightseeing Flights with individually sold seats or Tactical Trial Lessons.

Following an extensive risk assessment, we are very keen to return to flying, but there are going to have to be some changes in our day to day operation to enable us to ensure the safety of our staff and customers.

We would like to bring the following points to your attention:


  • The office will only be open when we have flying taking place but the phone and email will be monitored for queries or booking

On the day of your flight:

  • We ask that you do not turn up early for your flight, or if you do, you will need to stay in your car until your allocated time
  • Only one person will be allowed in the reception area at a time
  • You will be asked to sign a declaration that you haven’t had any symptoms of COVID19 or been in contact with anyone who has
  • All pilot, student and passenger’s temperatures will be taken before flight and anyone testing over 37.8°C will be requested to leave and rebook in 14 days
  • Face coverings and gloves will be used during each flight – we would request that you bring your own but if you don’t have any, don’t worry, they will be available at Polar for a small fee
  • All pilots are requested to bring their own headsets if they have them. If you do not, we will provide sanitised headsets for the duration of your flight
  • You are welcome to bring family with you to watch but they will not be able to enter the building. We would ask that they wait in their car or bring picnic chairs to use in the outside area. There are picnic benches available, but these will not be regularly sanitised
  • Hand sanitisers will be available for use in various locations on the premises
  • Please maintain a 2m social distance at all times whilst inside the building and in the car park or decking area. Where this is not practical please observe a 1m distance with a mask/face covering

We look forward to seeing you soon!
