The Goodwood Revival was first run in 1998, 50 years after the circuit first opened in 1948. The Revival celebrates the hayday of the Goodwood Circuit between 1948 & 1966 where it ranked alongside circuits such as Silverstone and even held Formula One British Grand Prix. Although you may be arriving by helicopter, the dress code is pre-war to the late 60's and very few people don't make the effort.
And that's not all. Expect to see a vintage fun fair, hundreds of period vehicles, wheel to wheel racing in priceless machines and catch the smell of Castrol R floating in the breeze.
The Goodwood motor circuit surrounds the aerodrome, but most of "the action" at The Revival is around the start finish line and pits complex in the north east corner of the site.
The Revival's success has seen visitor number expand and you'd better be an early riser if you don't want to sit in traffic. Or you could avoid all that hassle and arrive at The Revival in style! The transfer time from Brighton City (Shoreham) Airport is around 15-20 minutes in our Robinson R44 helicopter which seats 3, with everyone having a window looking out over stunning views of the Sussex countryside!
Your helicopter will land at The Revial Heliport where you will immediately be transported back in time as you travel in a vintage army vehicle across the airfield to the main event site.
Landing slots are allocated on a first come, first served basis so booking early will give you a greater choice of times.
If your party size is more than 3 we can provide quotations for larger helicopters. For further information and helicopter charter availabilty for The Revival please contact HeliFly on 01273 257070 or use the Enquiry Form on this page.
Helicopter Charters - Things to Note
To fully understand our helicopter charter offering we encourage you to read the details below.
- The price above is the charter cost for our Robinson R44 helicopter and includes VAT. The price is for up to 3 passengers flying (subject to weight) and does not include entry to the event. The cost does not reduce should there be less than 3 passengers as it is based on the operating cost of the helicopter not the seats occupied.
- Passenger Health
- There are no special health requirements to fly in a helicopter. If your doctor would say you are fit enough to fly on a regular commercial airliner then you're fine to fly with us.
- Please inform us of any passenger disabilities so can ensure they are taken into account when planning the charter. Please note that we are unable to carry wheel chairs in the R44 helicopter.
- Weight Restrictions
- The Robinson R44 has a maximum passenger weight of 22st. The helicopter can carry a combined passenger / baggage load of around 42st. If your party and their baggage will be close to or over 42st then it is advisable to contact us with the weights to ensure we can accommodate them.
- Our helicopter charters are subject to the weather conditions. Low cloud, poor visibility or high winds can cause flights to be postponed or cancelled. Should there be doubts over the weather we will contact you as far in advance as possible to allow alternate transport plans to be put in place.
- The Robinson R44 does not have a seperate luggage hold, just under seat stowage (max 50lbs). If you are planning to carry baggage it is worth confirming that it can be accommodated in the aircraft before you make a booking.
- Should your helicopter charter be cancelled you will receive a refund. This would normally be the full amount, but might be subject to some deductions if non-refundable deposits have been paid to other parties to arrange the charter or if legs of the charter have been previously flown.
