Helicopter Rides, the Ultimate Unique Mother’s Day Gift

Helicopter rides and tours, the ultimate unique Mother’s Day gift

Looking for the most unique way to show Mom just how special she is this Mother’s Day? Nothing beats a helicopter ride for a unique Mother’s Day gift she’ll never forget.

At Group 3 Aviation, we offer a number of helicopter tours, excursions and even an opportunity for Mom to take the controls of the helicopter for her first flight lesson.

Helicopter Tour and Malibu Mimosa Brunch or Sunset Champagne Toast

For the ultimate celebration of Mom, consider a Malibu Peak landing and helicopter tour. In this special trip, you can choose either morning, afternoon or evening and we’ll cater accordingly. In a morning flight, we’ll whisk Mom and up to two additional people off to our exclusive Malibu Peak landing site where Mom can enjoy coffee or mimosas and pastries before heading out for a special tour of the coast and Hollywood on the return trip. Our early evening trip includes wine or champagne, cheeses and other tasty treats, and a view of the sunset.

All tours include 30 minutes to enjoy the view and solitude of our grassy pad. Want to increase the adventure? We can add a longer Grand Tour after Mom’s private landing to make it the ultimate experience. Prices start at $380 per person.

Mother’s Day Mimosa Safari

Our Mother’s Day Mimosa Safari and helicopter tour takes Mom to beautiful Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu by helicopter where she’ll be met by Saddlerock Ranch’s safari coach and embark on a festive and relaxing brunch-style safari tour.

The tour kicks off with a visit with Saddlerock Ranch’s exotic wildlife, from a zebra trio and water buffalo family to alpacas, yaks, llamas and Spanish highland cattle. During the tour Mom visits tasting stops to sample fresh fruit juices and lemonade with Saddlerock’s own sparkling wine to create a variety of delicious mimosas. These beverage samplings are complemented by an assortment of pastries, croissants, fruit spreads and cheeses that round out the rest of a delicious meal.

Upon return to the helicopter, we’ll take Mom on our popular Hollywood and The Beach tour.

Mother’s Day Brunch & Spa

For something in the complete pampering category, you’ll want to book Mom on an Ojai Brunch and Spa getaway. We fly Mom out to Ojai where she’ll be shuttled to Ojai Valley Inn & Spa for brunch, and if you’re feeling extra generous, a spa treatment, before taking a breathtaking helicopter tour of the sights of your choosing on the way home. Talk about a day she’ll never forget. Prices vary depending on add-ons and length of time.

Helicopter Tour

For something a little less grand, yet no less memorable, we also offer a number of tours from Van Nuys Airport (ranging from $150 per person), including our Hooray for Hollywood, Hollywood and the Beach, California Coast and Canyons, Valleywood and Grand tours.

Helicopter Flight Lesson

If Mom has always had her eyes skyward, you can let her be master of the skies for the day with her very own helicopter flight lesson starting at $450. She’ll receive ground instruction on helicopter flight and the flight controls then receive a 60-minute flight lesson where she’ll take the controls of the helicopter with her instructor.

WARNING: Introducing Mom to the incredible world of helicopter flight can cause a reduction in future inheritance as she may decide one hour is never enough…

To book any of these great gift options on or around Mother’s Day, give us a shout at 818-994-9376 and we’ll assure Mom has an experience she’ll talk about for years.



Save a Horse, Ride a Helicopter Charter to Stagecoach

Helicopter Charter to Stagecoach

Stagecoach, California’s premiere county music festival, is about to take the ring and what better way to ride into the excitement than your own metal helicopter charter steed? After all, who wants to spend hours on the dusty trail, in a crowded coach or waiting to park when you can be with fellow fans enjoying the best country music has to offer?

A helicopter charter from Group 3 Aviation carries you above it all in relaxed comfort. Sit back on your breathtaking 90-minute flight to Bermuda Dunes Airport and you arrive at Stagecoach refreshed and ready to kick up your heels.

Go alone or share a helicopter charter cost with two friends (up to three passengers per aircraft) and cut that two-and-a-half to four-hour drive (not to mention time trying to find parking then hoofing it out to the main stage) to 90 relaxing minutes with a view.

Flying into Los Angeles and don’t have six to eight hours (round trip) to spend on the freeway to the Coachella Valley? We’ve got you covered. Whether you’re local or are flying in from out of town, your Stagecoach helicopter charter can meet you at any Los Angeles-area airport to whisk you away to the Bermuda Dunes Airport, just north of the festival. A quick helicopter shuttle ride lands you at Stagecoach’s front door hours before a packed shuttle bus stuck in traffic can.

And a soothing quick helicopter return trip at the end of your festival visit sees you safely back with no unpredictable traffic delays, missed flights or dangers of falling asleep at the wheel.

Stagecoach runs three days, April 29-30 and May 1. For information on the festival, artist line up and hotel options, visit the Stagecoach site.
