For those who work in London, it could provide the ultimate commute, taking less than 20 minutes to fly by helicopter to the capital of Horsham.

Tim Fauchon, chief executive of the British Helicopter Association, explained: "This is why people have helicopters as it saves them time. Either that or it is an expensive hobby.

'Rather than being in traffic in a chauffeur driven car, a businessman living in Horsham can be in the center of London within 20 minutes.'

He added that, like a car in a garage, it is a good idea to keep a helicopter sheltered from the elements.

He said: 'If you leave a helicopter outside, then they can leak if it rains. And you can have it down the blades if it gets windy. "
