Survey in Local Mountains

Granite Construction was contracted by the Federal Government to build the new border fence between Tijuana and Tecate. Gary Roesink flew the Astar AS350 with surveyors and construction supervisors into the area that is only accessible by foot saving them lots of time. The helicopter would drop the surveyors at one location and then they would work their way to their final location and notify the pilot to pick them up via radio communication.

White Lace And Black Astar

Mick Franks, originally from Australia, joined the Corporate Helicopters’ team as a full time employee and a week later got married. To celebrate the big day, his bride Kristin and her father made a grand entrance in the black Astar, to their bayside wedding at Paradise Point. The resort was the vision of Producer Jack Skirball in 1958; he designed the 44 acres on Mission Bay to be the perfect tropical movie set. Mick is a pilot and certified flight instructor.

Thunderboats Race

Every year Mission Bay roars with the sound of Thunderboats and support helicopters. Pilots, Andy Fagan, Garner Shepard and Tim Sears, were kept busy flying judges, sponsors and officials over the Races September 20th and 21st. Astar AS350 and Robinson R44 helicopters were flown for the event.

The Robinson R44 helicopters are now available for charter. With the addition of external pods, the helicopter can carry ample baggage or golf clubs. This makes it possible for a flight of one or two passengers to fly to LAX or a favorite golf course for half the cost of flying in the Astar. If you take a Winery Tour the pods will hold a case or two of your favorite wine for the flight home.

Red Sock Policy

When something is not in service at Corporate Helicopters, it is red socked to notify all that it is not functioning. Usually the policy applies only to helicopters, but Sophie marked herself out of service while she finished her mandatory rest before she returned to service.
