FLYT was created to start a revolution in personal flight. The founders, Andy King and James Palmer, recognised that helicopter travel offers a unique combination of speed, convenience and luxury. While he was training as a helicopter pilot, Andy realised there was no simple way for businesses or individuals to get a quote and book a helicopter flight in the way that has become the norm with virtually every other form of travel.
