Cheltenham Racecourse welcomes arrivals on racedays by helicopter, and operates the busiest temporary airfield in the UK, receiving 400 flights over The Festival week alone. The heliport is a temporary, licenced, surface level heliport located just outside the north east corner of Cheltenham Racecourse.
Racegoers can arrive in style directly into our helifield, and can catch our shuttle service down to the Racecourse main site. Raceday tickets will need to be shown before alighting.
All visiting aircraft must pre-book landings with our partner, Helipad. They can be contacted via their website (www.helipad.co.uk) or by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), and will provide full pilot briefings on confirmation of booking.
On racedays, Aerodrome Rescue and Fire Fighting Service Category H2 is provided at Cheltenham Heliport, as are two fuelling spots.
