The Largest Range of Aerostats in the World

Allsopp Helikites Ltd provides everything needed to fly, maintain, and store Helikites. Since the Helikite was designed and patented by Sandy Allsopp in 1993, Allsopp Helikites Ltd has designed many types of Helikite to suit the varying needs of our customers. 


The high quality of workmanship and materials and the critical attention to detail ensures that Helikites can endure long periods flying steadily in less-than-ideal weather conditions that ground normal aerostats. 


Our support products are normally designed or modified in-house, based on our experience of flying Helikites in many different environments and circumstances. They enhance the ease and cost-effectiveness of Helikite operation and can provide capabilities that are not available elsewhere.
