The history of Skycab

A short BBC documentary on the Skycab helicopter service from its then shuttle site at Beachampton. Broadcast on BBC2 in 1999.

Stephen Bath, founder of Skycab started the business operating helicopter rides at outdoor events in the late 70's. This lead to operating shuttle flights from a barge on the Thames in central London to the British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch with a single Jetranger Helicopter in 1981, when Skycab was formed.

By 1992 when Nigel Mansell won the British Grand Prix at Silverstone and became world champion, Skycab were operating 11 helicopters from four different shuttle sites and flew Mansells principal sponsor, Sid Oland Chairman of Labbatts Lager together with 325 other guests.

We have been flying from Greatworth House for the last five years with both Long Ranger and Jetranger helicopters.

Skycab is now one of the longest running Grand Prix shuttle operators with 32 years of continuous service.

Skycab is acting as agent for HELI CHARTER LTD of Manston, Kent, who operate the helicopters and the Greatworth Hall Heliport and hold all monies paid prior to the event.

 I used Skycab to fly clients into the circuit and avoid the queues. They run a quick and efficient service which is perfect for a corporate event. Will certainly use them again in the future.
