A Grand Arrival

Chief Pilot, Randy Zahn made an arrival into the new helipad at The Grand Del Mar, a luxury hotel nestled in the Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve in San Diego.

The Grand Del Mar helipad is a convenient amenity for guests to avoid the drive and fly into the property for a relaxing stay, a day of golf or to make a grand entrance into your wedding. Please contact Corporate Helicopters at 858-505-5650 or email us for an estimate to charter a helicopter to this beautiful resort.

Palomar Airport Runway Closure

For the past several weeks, Palomar Airport’s runway has been closed for repaving. Phase 4 of the McClellan-Palomar Airport runway rehabilitation is complete and the runway has been temporarily re-opened. The next runway closure is scheduled for Monday, July 5 at 23:30 thru Sunday July 11 at 12:30. However, helicopters are still able to land and take off from Palomar Airport during this closure. If you should need a flight out of Palomar Airport during this closure, Corporate Helicopters can accommodate you! For an updated runway construction schedule, click here.


Remembering Roland Rozzelle

It is with great sadness we would like say that our long time friend and pilot Roland Rozzelle, passed away on June 20th after many months of fighting a severe cancer that he fought to the very end.

Roland was an incredible flight instructor and taught many pilots that found good careers in the industry thanks to Roland's excellent skills. He worked with Ivor Shier flying helicopters at Flight Trails Helicopters then continued to fly for Civic and Corporate Helicopters as a contract pilot. Roland also flew the NBC 7/39 news helicopter for Corporate Helicopters and was popular with the news camera operators and talent. He will be missed by all of us in the San Diego helicopter community.

A memorial gathering at the Landings restaurant in Palomar Airport in Carlsbad is planned for Saturday, July 10th between 2:00PM and 4:00PM for friends who want to salute him a final farewell.
