Tresco Heliport

Tresco Heliport provides landing facilities for private and charter helicopters by prior arrangement.

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. A new helicopter service from Penzance will reconnect the islands to the mainland soon.

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


Facilities & Services

Landing is strictly by prior arrangement. Please see below for contact details.

Tresco Heliport is a grass airfield, 368 metres long and 6 metres ASL. The approximate position of the heliport is N49° 56.74 W006° 19.87

From the heliport, onward transport can be arranged to Tresco accommodation or eateries. Onward transfers to other islands can also be arranged through Tresco Boat Services.

There are no refuelling facilities available on Tresco; the nearest refueling services are at St Mary's Airport (Jet A) and Land's End Airport (AVGAS).

Fly in and join us this summer and benefit from our offer of no landing or parking fees. Join us for a day to explore Tresco Abbey Garden or enjoy lunch in one of our island restaurants, or stay a little longer and enjoy the beauty of the islands.
