IN THE BEGINNING
Back in 1990, Starflight Aviation, in its capacity as official air carrier to the Music Therapy Trust, was exclusively responsible for flying an estimated $1 billion worth of rock superstars into and out of the Knebworth ‘90 concert. Tears for Fears, Genesis, Status Quo, Robert Plant, Cliff Richard and the Shadows, Phil Collins, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney and Pink Floyd all shared the same bill in what was the most spectacular array of all-British talent ever to assemble for a single show.
On the day Starflight carried out 250 movements using a fleet of 15 helicopters, operating to a timetable that had been precisely calculated down to the very last second. With many other VIP's also being flown in, the sheer volume of traffic led to a second temporary 'feeder' airfield being constructed near Hemel Hempstead. It was the first time that the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) had licensed a temporary airfield primarily for night flying.
The CAA officially complimented Starflight on the high standard of professionalism with which everything had been organised and completed. Standards we continue to meet and exceed today. Knebworth ‘90 was just the very start of great things to come, and Starflight has proudly continued to fly the worlds of music, film, sport, corporate, government and entertainment to destinations both near and far.
Covid-19 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
The private aviation industry has proved more vital than ever during the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. Whilst commercial airlines have been forced to cancel flights and ground entire fleets of aircraft, general aviation has provided the ideal solution for those requiring air travel.
Starflight has been at the heart of the action continuing to manage charters throughout 2020 and 2021. Be it a repatriation flight, a vital business trip, or a well-timed vacation, Starflight continues to guide clients through the Covid-19 travel restrictions.
The benefits to flying privately throughout the pandemic include:
- Fewer interactions with other passengers in airport terminals and aircraft cabins.
- Ability to fly direct to your destination, again avoiding unnecessary interactions in commercial airport terminals.
- Aircraft interiors are thoroughly cleaned in-between flights.
- A charter expert will be on hand to guide you through the Covid-19 travel restrictions, providing support 24/7.
- Unlike commercial airlines, the aircraft work to your schedule so flights cannot be cancelled due a lack of uptake.
Our charter managers look forward to working with you and as always, remain on hand for any further question you may have.
