BRDC ANNOUNCE SLOANE HELICOPTERS AS A NEW PATRON
British Racing Drivers’ Club Announce a new Patron Association with Sloane Helicopters
The British Racing Drivers’ Club is pleased to announce a new Patronage with Sloane Helicopters. Sloane Helicopters, who are based in Northamptonshire, the same county as Silverstone circuit, home of the BRDC, are now involved with helicopter movements at the circuit under the banner of Silverstone Helicopters and have many exciting developments in the pipeline for helicopter operations at the circuit including pleasure flights, charter, refuelling and training.
David George, Chairman of Sloane Helicopters commented in relation to the announcement, “There is a natural fit between the British Racing Drivers’ Club and Sloane Helicopters as many of the attributes associated with helicopter flying are similar to those associated with racing cars. What’s more, many of the Members are already flying helicopters and we look forward to encouraging many more to learn to fly with us in the future. Our improvements to helicopter operations at the venue ensure that Silverstone is regarded as a first class flying facility in the future’.
Gillian Carr, Club Secretary of the BRDC commented, “It is a real pleasure to have Sloane Helicopters on-board as a Patron of the Club. Our Members interests far out-reach the confines of motorsport and affording them an exclusive connection with Sloane Helicopters is a fabulous opportunity”.
Sloane Helicopters is the UK and Ireland distributor for Leonardo (formerly AgustaWestland) and Robinson helicopters as well as offering a range of helicopter services, which include engineering, flight training and operations. For further information, please see www.sloanehelicopters.com
