Corporate Helicopters of San Diego made my wedding proposal happen! When they mentioned that they do direct flights to the Thornton Winery I knew that it would be perfect for what I was looking for. Everyone at CHSD made our experience special and memorable. I can’t thank them enough for going above and beyond to take care of all our requests. The flight was amazing and something we will never forget and plan to do many more times!

Corporate Helicopters has been the provider of choice for aerial support services for the NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally, a 5 day international off road motorsports event. We have utilized their services for both emergency evacuation plans and enhanced media relations (photography and videography). Always reliable and efficient, their world-class service and top-notch equipment enables us to put total confidence in their capabilities, reduce costs and streamline logistics. Between Ivor, Mandy and their pilots, you won’t find a nicer team to work with.
