Chopper Convoys

Over recent weeks I've noticed a number of helicopter convoys - groups of three passenger carrying civilian helicopters heading either North-east or South-west. Does anyone know what they are? I notice the Queen's flight often flies over on a similar route.

Newmarket to Ascot and back (who else can afford private helicopter convoys).... :?:

If you draw a line from one to the other on a map we're pretty much on the flight path. It'll be Mr. Godolphin and his cohorts (who probably have a helicopter for each day of the week).

I believe Hanbury Manor also has a helipad that has been used been for guests, particularly for large events.
