FlyMeNow has kicked-off 2013 with an exclusive three year deal with Cranfield Airport. Already the UK’s leading authority in private jet hire, the firm aims to provide a faster and more reliable way to get to the racing at the 2013 Formula 1 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Over its years in business, FlyMeNow has built a world-class reputation and a truly enviable client-base including corporate and government customers, along with innumerable stars of stage and screen. With a fleet of helicopters running a continuous service every 7 minutes, FlyMeNow allows fans to get straight to the action without any queues or muddy fields.

Avoid Last Year’s Chaos
During last year’s race at the Silverstone track, fans were left queuing and stuck in mud baths, causing chaos for hours. FlyMeNow aims to eradicate this problem and offer a quick and reliable solution for fans who would like to avoid the same problem again. Whilst some helicopter companies offer flights from hotels and fields, FlyMeNow will be playing CAA licensed helicopters from Cranfield, a fully operating airport, which will be dedicated to Silverstone activity for the duration of the 2013 Formula 1 British Grand Prix.

FlyMeNow has been working for over 7 years with the British Grand Prix and believes every client wants efficiency and reliability. "We fly top drivers, their teams and even parts for the cars," says FlyMeNow's commercial director, Andrew Whitney. FlyMeNow’s offer includes valet parking, hospitality in the airport’s executive suite, a safety briefing with the helicopter pilot, a flight straight to Silverstone and a chauffeur driven journey to the correct part of the track in an Audi.

What the Client Wants, the Client Gets
"They tell us they need to know that we'll be there every year, ready at the drop of a hat. Our corporate customers also need flawless arrangements, as they are entertaining their biggest customers. We will be operating a fleet of executive helicopters including the Bell Jet Ranger. This exclusive deal with Cranfield gives three years of efficient reliable transfers to Silverstone that nobody else can match". – FlyMeNow

Airport Director Jason Ivey said, "Cranfield Airport is in an exciting period of its life, focusing heavily on executive and business aviation. Our joint partnership with FlyMeNow is a step forward in enhancing our reputation and showcasing our facilities to customers. We see this as a long term arrangement –I'd like to think the Silverstone shuttle will be flying fans to the British Grand Prix in ten years' time".

Silverstone will hold the 2013 Formula 1 British Grand Prix in June from the 28th to the 30th, however bookings can be made with FlyMeNow who urge people to book early to get their preferred time slots.
