York Ebor Festival Helicopter Flights – 23rd August – 26th August 2017
The Ebor meeting, as all horse racing enthusiasts will know, is the pinnacle of the York horse racing calendar. Our base on the outskirts of York makes us an excellent choice for guests wishing to travel to the Ebor Festival by helicopter.
It’s a busy week for York Racecourse, so be sure to book your race tickets in good time. You can view the full schedule of the event on the YorkRacecourse Ebor page here.
Wednesday 23rd August 2017 – Juddmonte International
For many racegoers the opening day of the festival is the day when they catch up with friends and look forward to a week of shared enjoyment. Arriving by helicopter is the perfect way to create the right impression and start the week in great spirits. Form followers will watch the Betway Great Voltigeur with particular interest as this York Group Two has already produced thirteen winners of the final Classic of the year, the St. Leger.
Thursday 24th August 2017 – Darley Yorkshire Oaks & Ladies Day
On all four days there will be a real sense of fashion, however for many there remains an extra special feel about Thursday as it is Ladies Day. Ladies make that extra special effort, so arriving as one of the best dressed racegoers by helicopter will be the perfect entrance to Ladies Day. The sporting action attracts the best fillies as the Group One Darley Yorkshire Oaks and the Group Two Pinsent Masons Lowther Stakes are sought after trophies for owners.
Friday 25th August 2017 – Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes
Friday offers the chance to race into the weekend. Perhaps you could enjoying a short break in historic York or we could transfer you to one of the excellent country house hotels by helicopter for an evening stay. The fastest race of the season, the Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes, often decides the accolade of leading sprinter and is a blur of colour that needs to be seen and heard to be believed.
Saturday 26th August 2017 – Betfred Ebor Day
Saturday is the busiest day of the week, with traffic sure to be heavy in the city centre. A helicopter transfer into the racecourse is probably more sought after on this day than any other.
The feature race of the Saturday is the Betfred Ebor, the oldest, and probably most famous race at York and the richest flat handicap in Europe. The excitement that this famous handicap generates has been constant since the 1840s; The buzz about the racecourse on Ebor day is infectious as groups of friends enjoy, relax and hopefully have a wonderful time.
Finally, we can thoroughly recommend the wonderful Ebor restaurant ion the main grandstand. Without doubt, consistently supply a constant stream of excellent food, service and refreshments throughout the event.
