About Thurston Helicopters - Headcorn Aerodrome


Thurston Helicopters was formed in 1989 and was owned and run by James Tuke, who as well as being Managing Director is also Head of Training. Since that time Thurston have trained hundreds of people to gain their PPL(H) and many have gone on and gained their Commercial Licence and now work within the helicopter industry. In 2011 James was joined by longterm friend and colleague Gerald Hodges, also a helicopter pilot of 25 years standing, who became joint owner and Director of the company. Gerald provides sales advice having been involved with his own sucessful companies prior to joining Thurston. He also spends much time providing safety pilot services.

"We pride ourselves on high standards, personal service and are committed to helping our clients achieve, and enjoy gaining their helicopter pilots licence. We like the fact that being a small company means we can keep in close touch with all our students many of whom have become friends."

"We also offer trial lessons and pleasure flights for those looking to experience a helicopter flight or make sure it is something they wish to pursue."
