There are very few companies in our industry who can proudly point to 50 years in business. Sloane Helicopters in the UK is one of these, and today they are holding a party to celebrate the landmark.
Just five years after the company was founded by David George, he had the foresight to become the distributor in UK and Ireland for Robinson helicopters, and has been responsible for the sales of over 500 helicopters from the factory in California.
Alongside 45 years for one manufacturer, Sloane has also go 26 years experience selling new Leonardo helicopters into the same countries – and has sold over 90 AW109s alongside AW119s and AW169s in smaller numbers. The company also flies an AW139 on a scheduled route between Penzance Heliport and the Isles of Scilly
Sloane recently announced their fifth UK base at Elstree will open early in 2022.
