Congratulations to Oracle Team USA winning the America’s Cup! Corporate Helicopters captured the winner-take-all race with 3 Astar helicopters. We were thrilled to be a part of one of the most improbable comebacks in the sport’s history!
Ryan Jay De Los Santos wanted to make the long awaited marriage proposal to his future bride “surprising and memorable”. He did just that by taking her on a helicopter ride around San Diego along with a special message in the sand of The Hotel Del Coronado!
Flight Training at Corporate Helicopters has been active this summer!
We are pleased to announce the following achievements:
On July 6, Fitzroy proposed to Nicole outside Corporate Helicopters before their Unforgettable helicopter tour over San Diego.
While in flight, Pastor Ronald Boiling officiated their wedding ceremony.
Pilot Garner Shepard left on May 1, 2013 to start a LiDAR Mission for the Towill, Inc. His mission began over power lines that spanned from California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado and Wyoming before reaching South Dakota.
The 2013 Season Finale of Criminal Minds recently aired on CBS and we are excited to announce SAG Pilot, Ivor Shier was a part of the action!
Aerial filming at night included working along with actors on landings and take offs, air-to-air sequences, and landing on a private ranch where they simulated a crash.
On May 4th, 2013, The Girl Scouts of San Diego hosted the 12th Annual Operation Thin Mint® Sendoff Celebration aboard the USS Midway Museum to celebrate sending 180,968 boxes of donated Girl Scout cookies to deployed U.S. military troops.
Corporate Helicopters joined in on the fun by flying two Astars full of the top cookie sellers of the year onto the Midway.
Roy Thomasson’s first airplane logbook entry was in 1945 at the end of WWII.
Roy had never flown in a helicopter, so he decided to take an introductory flight lesson with Tara Sturm, CFII for his 94th birthday celebration!
We would like to congratulate Marshall Jordan on passing his check ride and becoming a Commercial Helicopter Pilot! Marshall has already begun his instrument training and is focused on becoming a CFI and CFII.
Congratulations to Dave Shapiro for passing his check ride and becoming a commercial helicopter pilot.
He is now multi-rated in both helicopters and airplanes, and plans to continue pursuing his passion of aviation.
Dave completed his private and commercial helicopter ratings in a total of just 4 months, way to go Dave!
