Our Agusta 109S has a cruise speed of 150 knots (173 mph / 278 kph). From our base in Cabinteely, Co. Dublin, Cork is a 50 minute flight, Belfast can be reached in 36 minutes, London in 1 hour and 45 minutes and Glasgow in 1 hour 10 minutes (all times approximate and subject to weather and air traffic considerations).

Given the high cruise speed of the Agusta 109S, our rates compare very favorably with prices being charged by other operators for their single engine helicopters. With prices from less than €2 per seat per mile, we can provide unrivalled efficiency in terms of both money and time. In addition to faster journey times, you will also benefit from the added safety of a second engine, a larger cabin and the comfort provided by our onboard stability and automatic pilot systems. With its high level of on board equipment, comfortable flight is possible in most weather conditions, ensuring that the passengers' time is maximised and, on arrival at your destination, you are ready for that all important business meeting or relaxed enough to enjoy that equally important game of golf.
