Our long time web developer and Internet marketing expert recently stopped by, and he brought along his new marketing consultant, Blade Brown.
Blade had never experienced a helicopter before.
Last week we flew members of the San Diego County Water Authority on a custom group helicopter tour that utilized two helicopters. The tour helped staff members and personnel with the California Water Board survey lakes, rivers, estuaries, dams and pump stations in San Diego County.
The helicopters landed at various locations, including the Carlsbad Desalination Plant, so passengers could tour the facility.
Don’t miss the Valle Food & Wine Fest, October 5, 2019 in Valle de Guadalupe, Ensenada. The easiest & fastest way to get there is by helicopter from San Diego. We will have private helicopters available, but they will sell out – so make your reservations ASAP.
With San Diego Comic-Con happening this weekend, we wanted to flashback to one of our favorite Comic Con memories.
In 2010, we got to fly William Shatner to land on the USS Midway as part of an event held by MyOuterSpace.

He is a native San Diegan and knows the best-kept secrets of San Diego from the air.
Southern California Edison has contracted with Corporate Helicopters to fly and inspect powerline distribution poles as part of a program that aims to reduce wildfire risk in the San Bernardino County and Riverside County areas.
Here’s a bit of a flashback to December 15, 2018, when we got to fly a special charter to help Irish Santa deliver Christmas presents to Bayside Elementary School.
We also got to do this in 2017.

Providing crew transport, Roesink landed at 14 remote locations so our clients could perform maintenance on their antenna sites.

Corporate Helicopters’ Flight Coordinator Calvin Bois captured the event in this photo essay.
Following on the heels of our previous post about providing aerial support for the 2019 Baja 500, here’s a photo throwback to the 2010 Baja 1000.
In the photo, that’s Ivor Shier’s AStar N547SA filming an off-road racer in Laguna Salada.
A couple weeks ago, we provided aerial race support for the Score International Off-Road Racing Baja 500.

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16. If you want to give your dad an incredible gift and win Father’s Day forever, we have you covered.
What if you could give your dad the experience of being a helicopter pilot – where he actually got the experience of flying a helicopter in San Diego?
Shepard has now been doing lidar surveying for nine years. “The biggest change [over that time] is the size of the equipment,” he said. “The older systems were big. Now they can fit on smaller air-craft and even drones. They also put out real time data now so operators can see coverage as they are surveying.”

Some American motorbike riders had been on a tour in the Sierra de Juarez Mountains of Mexico, when they encountered an unexpected snowstorm.
Corporate Helicopters was recently hired for an HVAC lift job for a local mechanical company. Chief Pilot Gary Roesink flew an Astar helicopter for the job, replacing 1 HVAC unit and placing 9 more.
This job would have taken a standard, land-based crane more time, longer man hours and ultimately it would have cost a lot more. So the client saved time and money.
We recently donated a Diego Delight helicopter tour of San Diego as a raffle prize benefiting two great organizations: Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County, and Outdoor Outreach.
This event was held to generate mentors and role models to empower and inspire youths who are in need in our San Diego Community.
