About our Heliport

Built in March 2020, Penzance Heliport revived the lost rotary-wing service between mainland Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Made possible by the passion for the Isles of Scilly the Dorrien-Smith family has, and from a multitude of supporters from Penzance, the islands and further afield, the heliport is a tribute to them and a sign of confidence and positivity about Penzance and the Isles of Scilly.

Located just off the A30, and just a mile from Penzance Rail Station by electric shuttle bus, Penzance Heliport is ideally located. On-site parking for around 270 vehicles, EV charging points, bike storage and excellent public transport links make connecting to the islands from across the country a breeze.

About our Airfield

Penzance Heliport sits 1NM NE of Penzance Town, 21FT AMSL at 50°07’49’’N 005°30’50’’W. The airfield is currently permitted for VFR operations only, between normal operation hours of 0800-1700.

Our helipad is a 20m x 20m concrete pad with lights, with a secondary pad of the same dimension to the east, comprised of a reinforced grass surface and concrete edge markers. JET A1 fuel available upon request, with hangarage and grass parking available. The airfield is RFFS Category H2.
