You may recall that back in late October Private Jet Charter hosted a celebration at the W Hotel to celebrate the opening of their newest office in downtown Ft. Lauderdale. Well see below what Chris Salley, the lucky winner of our fantastic prize draw had to say about his helicopter sightseeing experience.
‘I was very fortunate to attend the event and this also seemed to be my lucky day! As they raffled away the grand prize I was ecstatic to realize I had just won an hour charter on a Florida Jets Eurocopter EC-130 for six. I have been working in the industry for some time now, but up until this moment I had never had the pleasure of flying in a helicopter. So for me, this was a childhood dream come true.
My guests and I set off for the flight on a Saturday afternoon, having decided to take a tour down the coast from Fort Lauderdale Executive to Miami Beach/Downtown and then loop back up with a short hop over the Everglades. The weather was exceptional and while we encountered gusts of up to around 15 mph, the Eurocopter handled the winds with minimal effort. During our flight over Miami I felt almost as if I was rediscovering the city I see every day, it looked so different from this vantage point.
Overall it was a fantastic flight and I would like to thank Private Jet Charter for making it possible, with a special thanks to Daniel Hurley who helped me make all the arrangements. It’s a memory I will keep for a long time.’
Our pleasure Chris. Private Jet Charter have donated the same Eurocopter sightseeing trip as a silent auction prize at the 12th Annual Riverwalk Trust Tribute to be held on 28th March. So get yourself along to the festivities, at the historic Riverside Hotel on East Las Olas Blvd for your chance to win the trip of a lifetime.
