Allsopp Helikites Ltd. provides everything needed to fly, maintain and store Helikites.


Since the design and patent of the Helikite by Sandy Allsopp in 1993, Allsopp Helikites Ltd. has designed a vast range of Helikites to suit our customers. The quality of workmanship, materials and attention to detail is very high, and this ensures that Helikites can endure long periods flying steadily in the sort of unpleasant weather that grounds normal aerostats.


Our support products are normally designed or modified in-house, based on years’ worth of 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.

Training is highly recommended for customers who purchase Helikites of 20m3 and over, especially if cameras are involved, as they require special mounting and ground handling.

Allsopp Helikites can provide training for any Helikite or product. A training ground is located in Cranborne, Dorset, which is just a short drive from the main manufacturing facility located in Fordingbridge, Hampshire, UK.
