PETITION FOR A HELICOPTER SERVICE BETWEEN PENZANCE AND THE ISLES OF SCILLY

PETITION FOR A HELICOPTER SERVICE BETWEEN PENZANCE AND THE ISLES OF SCILLY

We, the residents, visitors and friends of the Isles of Scilly, object to the actions of the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group in seeking to deny us a helicopter service from Penzance.

Penzance is the only logical site as it suffers less from low cloud and fog than Land's End, is close to transport links and has existing tourist facilities.

We demand that the Directors of the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group put islanders first and cease their attempts to prevent a new helicopter service from Penzance.

Why is this important?

We need a stronger transport system that provides resilience, reliability and choice.

Reasons for signing

  • It is absolutely essential that the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group does not have a monopoly on transport to and from the Isles of Scilly. The way this company has done everything possible to try and scupper any healthy competition is truly appalling. I really hope that Penzance Heliport can launch a service as quickly as possible.
  • Because it makes more sense Penzance based rather than at Lands End, too foggy too often
  • It is important to have reliable, all year round, weather resilient helicopters flying to Tresco and St Marys that can carry large groups of people when planes, boats and small helicopters cant fly due to weather conditions that larger helicopters can deal with.
