Tresco Heliport currently provides landing facilities for private and charter helicopters, by prior arrangement only. From 2020 we are reinstating a direct scheduled helicopter service from Penzance to Tresco.

About Tresco Heliport

Tresco Heliport was opened in 1983 by John King, Baron King of Wartnaby, Chairman of British Airways.

The heliport was used by the commercial helicopter service between Penzance and the Isles of Scilly for 29 years until the service ceased in 2012.

new helicopter service from Penzance will reinstate direct helicopter flights to Tresco and St Mary's from 2020.

Tresco Heliport currently offers a landing site for charter and private helicopters, enabling guests to land direct on the island of Tresco.
