Cowdray Park Polo Club is pleased to announce another new signing. Phoenix Helicopters, the south’s favourite Helicopter Training School and Charter Operator, will provide the Heliport management services at the Jaeger-LeCoultre Gold Cup Final on Sunday 23rd July and will also operate pleasure flights for spectators on the day.
For the first time ever, those attending the prestigious Final of the British Open Polo Championship, will be able to reserve a short flight at Phoenix’s stand in the Retail Village, be taken by private buggy to the River Ground to pick up their flight, and transported over the South Downs in a 12 minute recreational helicopter experience costing just £49.
Phoenix Helicopters was established in 2009 and has quickly grown to become one of the UK’s most trusted helicopter providers. It is owned and run by instructors and pilots who are passionate about their jobs and will go out of their way to fulfill their clients’ needs. Located at Goodwood Aerodrome in West Sussex, Solent Airport, and Blackbushe Airfield in Surrey, Phoenix Helicopters prides itself in making charter or leisure flights the un-rushed, enjoyable and rewarding experience they should be. Whether attending a major sporting event, a special occasion, or simply enjoying a one-off experience, Phoenix Helicopters are there to help. The Phoenix Helicopter Academy also provides helicopter flying lessons, from a trial lesson right through to assisting new pilots into careers as Commercial Helicopter Pilots.
Matt Petersen, General Manager of Cowdray Park Polo Club says: “I am delighted that Phoenix Helicopters will be providing the necessary coordination of flights in and out of Cowdray Park Polo Club during the Final of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Gold Cup and that they have been able to extend their role into giving some of our spectators their first helicopter flight.”
Managing Director of Phoenix Helicopters, Paul Andrews, says: “This is an amazing opportunity to partner with Cowdray and support a truly world class polo event. We look forward to an exciting finals weekend.”
