Chopper Ride

Meet Gary, just the best damn helicopter pilot ever! What is it about pilots named Gary?  I know 2 pilots of that name and both of them fly far better than any commercial airline pilot I have ever flown with. Must be a Gary thing?!

My friend Jen was filming a commercial for her real estate business and we got to be a part of it. Gary was so patient and kind with us while we filmed, took a gazillion pictures and tested the chopper with and without the doors on to see how comfortable we would be in the air before we took off. I did not feel great about having the door off and neither did Lori but I knew I would regret it if I didn't try so I went sans door while Lori was perfectly fine having hers stay on. Gary and Jen had theirs off as well. Let me tell you... #noregrets . The last time I flew in a helicopter was in Hawaii and I got so air sick. Having the fresh air blow constantly on me was a game changer. Also Gary was  great at warning us when he was going to dip or turn so we could prepare. If you are on the space coast go see Gary at Beachside Helicopters and take a tour. Make sure it is Gary, his competitor is trying to run him out of business...they keep crashing their planes so obviously Gary is the best choice anyway.

We flew out over Port Canaveral and got a birds eye view of the cruise ships, NASA and Cocoa Beach. Saw some dolphins and waved to Gary's family soaking up the sun on the shore.

They call this the 1000 islands.

These pictures really reveal how badly I need to get my camera sensor cleaned. I need to get over to Wings Camera ASAP!

Helicopter hair don't care!

Meet Gary!

I can't recommend this enough. Gary is fantastic!
