Need to land a Chopper?
Since 1959, the 'London Heliport' has been assisting London
Location: Lombard Road, Battersea, SW11 3RE
Description: Since 1959, the 'London Heliport' has been providing essential service to the business community and emergency services, such as the Air Ambulance (HEMS) and Police Air Support units.
It is the only Heliport to be approved by the CAA in our glorious capital. Located on the River Thames between Battersea and Wandsworth bridges, the London Heliport caters for both business and leisure customers requiring quick access in and out of the City and escape from the congested road network in and around London.
So you if you have a chopper, you can probably land it here!
