Starspeed moves closer to London
Helicopter operator Starspeed has made a major move by relocating from Blackbushe to Fairoaks airport, with newly refurbished offices and hangar.

Helicopter operator Starspeed has made a major move by relocating from Blackbushe to Fairoaks airport, with newly refurbished offices and hangar.

"Fairoaks is ideally situated to the south west of London and provides reduced positioning time to the London heliport," says managing director Richard Evans. "We have expanded and refurbished facilities here to provide an ideal environment to complement our training division, headquartered at Kemble airfield."

The company operates a Sikorsky S76 with a charter fleet of Eurocopter twins including AS355, AS365, EC135, EC145 and EC155 models.

The EC155, it says, can fly from London heliport to a central Paris heliport, direct in one hour 15 minutes, and to Brussels and Amsterdam in slightly more. "A Eurostar train will take three hours and a private aircraft only slightly less than the train when accounting for the transfer time between city centre and airport at each end of the journey," the company says.
