Hummingbird Helicopters & Drone

Interested about the possibility of flying helicopters?

Maybe you have always considered the idea of taking lessons but haven't pursued it. Or you are thinking of a career change, a new hobby or sending a loved one up for an Introductory Flight or a Trial Lesson?

Hummingbird are a helicopter operator based at Hangar 3 at Doncaster Sheffield Airport. We are hangared right next to the last serviceable Avro Vulcan XH558, and offer a fresh approach to helicopter services at an outstanding and real world commercial airport.

The Airport is only 25 minutes from Sheffield as a result of the new link road 'The Great Yorkshire Way', and only minutes from Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham.

​Having spent over a decade instructing and examining in the UK and USA, flying Air Ambulance in the Middle East and working in the Oil and Gas sector on the North Sea, we have decided to use our experience, knowledge and enthusiasm to open Hummingbird.

Hummingbird Helicopters offer a professional, modern and welcoming service to anyone... and they just love talking helicopters! While safety and integrity are core principles, their aim is to you allow you to enjoy the freedom of flying the most versatile aircraft ever built.

If you'd like to talk to the team, if you have questions about Flight Training, Gift Vouchers, Ground School, Trial Lessons or Introductory Flights... please give us a call.

Flights start from £139 and gift vouchers are available from £20.
