Flying to St Mary’s and Tresco, Penzance Helicopters is the fastest – and most unique – journey to an island paradise.

The helicopter flies throughout the year from Penzance Heliport, just off the A30 at Penzance and just a mile from the railway station by electric shuttle. You’ll enjoy the fastest flight to the islands, at just 15 minutes, and a leading 20kg luggage allowance.

Your dog can even join the adventure, travelling onboard with you for a holiday filled with dog-friendly adventures.

From the thrill of lifting off to the aerial views of the Cornish coastline and the breathtaking approach into England’s enchanting archipelago, Penzance Helicopters offers a journey that’s as unique as the destination.

After boarding your aircraft and a few words from your Captain, you’ll climb out over St Michael’s Mount and the golden beaches of the West Cornwall peninsula.

Watch as your pilot sets course for the islands, and before you know it, you’ll be soaring past the scattered Eastern Isles and St Martin’s iconic Daymark. As you approach St Mary’s or Tresco, you’ll know you’re arriving on the islands in style.

On the return flight, you’ll take a different view, gaining a unique perspective on the craggy Cornish coastline with its iconic Minack theatre, lighthouses and fishing coves.

You’ll fly aboard the twin-engine Sikorsky S76 helicopter, renowned for its resilience, reliability and performance in roles as diverse as VIP transport, search and rescue, ambulance and commercial services. 

Its large cabin windows offer unobstructed views of the picturesque Isles of Scilly, while the aircraft offers a smooth and comfortable journey.

Whether visiting the islands on a Day Trip or staying a little longer, with Penzance Helicopters, you can enjoy a journey as unique as the destination.
