Irvine Laidlaw has made a generous and long standing commitment to help fund the British Helicopter Team over the past 3 world championship events. The financial backing of the British Team is essential in order for the team to be able to compete in international events. Success at international level requires a huge investment to find ways to continually improve on past performance and improve consistency and this involves the team practising in home based training events and competing in European national events. Irvine has made a significant contribution towards financing the cost of competing in such events. At the 2012 World Helicopter Championships in Russia the British Team won the team silver medal - the highest position ever achieved (having achieved a bronze medal placing in 2008). Without the support of key principal sponsors such as Irvine Laidlaw these successes may not have been achieved.
