Raise your hand if Girl Scout Cookie season is your favorite season. At Independent Helicopters we love hosting the Girl Scouts to teach them all about what we do, how the business has grown, and all of the potential they have to do great things not only within the Girl Scout program, but beyond! As a certified Woman Owned Business, cultivating a passion in young girls is one of the most rewarding things for us. They might not know it yet, but their potential is literally limitless. The girls are always so eager and challenge us by asking some really great questions. Girl Scout days are always a nice break from our usual day-to-day, and it’s so fun to share what we love. Lucy gets a really kick out of it, too! We’re looking forward to hosting some more troops in the coming months, and getting the Boy Scouts involved as well!
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society has been an organization near and dear to our hearts at Independent Helicopters over the past several years, as they work to raise money and fight blood cancers. Their fundraising programs provide us with some really unique opportunities to turn our passion for aviation into something that unites people for a great cause (hello, helicopter paintball!).
As many of you know, our very own Matt Taggard is launching his campaign for LLS Man of the Year next week. Next Friday, March 5th we will be kicking off at Billy Joe’s Ribworks in Newburgh and auctioning off various prizes!
Stop by from 4-6pm for free food, a chance to donate to Matt’s campaign and win Helicopter Paintball tickets. Also enjoy live music with Jared Funari and a chance to experience “Behind the Bar” at Billy Joe’s. A suggested donation of $10 at the door will go towards Matt’s LLS campaign. First 20 people will receive a complimentary gift bag! We hope to see you there!
We’re so lucky that the February temperatures have been so good to us, but it still seems like summer days are still so far away. After some quality time perusing YouTube we stumbled across this video of an R44 helicopter tour in Hawaii. These are the same helicopters we use, just half a world away! It’s always fun to watch videos like this and see how different an experience can be when you’re in a totally unique setting. The scenery we get to explore in the Northeast is just as beautiful, but it’s hard not to envy the year-long high temps of Hawaii. Are you daydreaming of summer plans, too?
PS: Just a reminder, check us out on Instagram to see some of our exciting day-to-day operations! @Independentheli
One of our favorite things to do with clients is spice up their morning commute. How much more exciting would your work day be if you arrived via helicopter? Come on, what a way to impress!
While the idea might seem a little “out there” or too crazy to incorporate into your morning routine, at Independent Helicopters we make the whole experience very professional and relaxed. Did you know that our average helicopter size isn’t even that much bigger than your standard SUV? While the experience is definitely unique to say the least, it’s not as outlandish as you might think. In fact, to us, it’s normal!
Give us a call today to see how your day could be improved with a charter flight.
