We characterize helix surfaces (constant angle surfaces) in the special linear group $$\mathrm {SL}(2,{\mathbb {R}})$$SL(2,R). In particular, we give an explicit local description of these surfaces by means of a suitable curve and a 1-parameter family of isometries of $$\mathrm {SL}(2,{\mathbb {R}})$$SL(2,R). 
New developments on constant angle property in $${\mathbb {S}}^2\times {\mathbb {R}}$$S2×R
