About Hields Aviation

Discover the experts of Yorkshire flight

Hields Aviation was established by Robert Hields in 1989. With 30+ years in helicopter flying, it’s easy to see why they’re the go to organisation for helicopters in Yorkshire.

From their main base at Sherburn airfield, (only 15 miles from Leeds city centre), they provide a range of helicopter services including charter / brokerage, pleasure flights, aerial filming / photography and pilot training.

In 2019 Hields were proud to open their second based at Leeds Bradford Airport. With Sherburn Airfield being the main and helicopter base, Leeds has quickly become a hub for fixed wing training. With the vast amenities on offer at Leeds Bradford Airport, it’s cost effective for rapid development and gets pilots familiar with busy surrounding found on an international airport.

At the heart of Hields is a friendly team of instructors with years of experience in the industry. The helicopter school alone has logged over 35,000 flying hours!
