G-RAYN Helicopter operations

Out of aviation interest does anybody happen to know who this helicopter G-RAYN operates for, it seems to operate between stoke on Trent and Newcastle almost every weekday, transiting low level over Manchester, sometimes twice a day at similar times for the last 12 months or more, I imagine it is some kind of corporate operation but could be wrong, any replies are appreciated.

I’ve very recently heard rumours of possibly unjustified complaints about this aircraft. Sounds like a case of the green eyed monster again.

Someone asked this question not so long ago and got a blank reply.

Itís the owner of a large on-line betting company commuting between home and office. Should change soon as a new home (with helipad) is under construction just north of Stoke.

The owner, as in DC? If so, are you sure they currently live in the North East?

Yes the house - and surrounding land purchases - are not quite finished. Also there are lights to be installed at the new helipad.

Didn't realise G-RAYN flies up and back twice a day.
