Helicopter Operations

Helicopter Operations


2017 saw the introduction of F34 Jet Fuel at Eshott Airfield.  Whilst this is an exciting time for the airfield, there are significant dangers with helicopter operations.  

Purple Aviation teaches it's students the importance of rotor wash & turbulence caused by large helicopters but private users of the site should remain vigilant at all times.  

The helicopter joining procedure is shown below as per the 2018 Flying Order Book


All helicopter traffic will be joining the airfield as per the diagrams above which shows two helicopter aiming points.  Helicopter aiming points will change depending on the runway in use which gives the opportunity for spacing from rotary aircraft.
