About Helix AV

Image of Helix AV

Established by Gary and Steve to promote the exceptional range of Bell Helicopters in the UK Market Place, please review our New and pre-Owned Helicopter pages.

Our aim is to provide you with the very best helicopter experience and that in our opinion means a Bell Helicopter. We firmly believe that Bell Helicopter provides the best combination in terms of value, performance, reliability and support. Our commitment to you does not stop at the sale, we can and manage the aircraft during your ownership covering things such as insurance, warranty, maintenance, training.

Whilst we are in business to sell helicopters we are always happy to provide advice and guidance on a no commitment basis.
