Sloane Helicopters Ltd, the UK’s longest-established privately-owned helicopter company, is expanding its engineering and support services by acquiring a new hangar facility at London Elstree Aerodrome.
Sloane Helicopters has signed Heads of Agreement for the acquisition of a dedicated new hangar at Elstree. The Elstree hangar facility is expected to be open from early 2022 and will initially offer Leonardo Authorised Service Centre line maintenance and hangarage for Sloane’s customers. The facility is planned to expand its capability into base maintenance and a wider range of services.
London Elstree Aerodrome is uniquely placed for fast access into London and benefits from unrestricted 24-hour operations with dedicated ground handlers and round-the-clock refuelling. This expansion further increases our network of leading facilities which include additional bases and maintenance capability at Enniskillen, Northern Ireland; RAF Northolt, London and Penzance, Cornwall. All are supported by a network of rapid response Field Service Engineers. These facilities complement Sloane’s main operating base in Sywell, Northamptonshire.
Founded 50 years ago by its current Chairman, David George, Sloane Helicopters is a leading European onshore helicopter company providing a full suite of aviation services. As the sole UK and Ireland Distributor and authorised Service Centre for Leonardo Helicopters (the leading twin-engine helicopter manufacturer) for over 26 years, Sloane has developed an unrivalled close partnership with the manufacturer and is renowned for its expertise with Leonardo products.
