In collaboration with Bell Helicopter, PGA has just announced the helicopter services as one of main premium transportation during the tournament. PGA is well-known to have premium hospitality services for corporate, executives, and officials, but helicopter hospitality? It’s completely new for the championship. Of course, you might have noticed helicopters aired in the previous years’ events but they’re not a part of hospitality program yet.
Here is the fact about PGA’s helicopter flight program:
Collaboration between PGA and Bell:
Bell becomes the only PGA’s official helicopter provider for the flight program. The helicopter program would likely transport important stakeholders who will stay in different sites on Manhattan. Even though Bethpage Park is still reachable with land transportation, helicopter won’t deal with traffic for sure and will cut the trip into minutes.
Bell will use 407 and 429 model for the PGA tournament due to valid reasons. These models are well-known to provide a convenient and comfortable ride. However, instead of providing the service alone, Bell takes the leading on-demand flight service company, BLADE, and Zip Aviation into the consortium. As you might have known that Bell 429 model is the most popular helicopter for corporate flights.
Corporate Hospitality Program:
Cooperation between Bell and PGA in helicopter services is to enhance the corporate hospitality program. It comes as the innovation on PGA’s transportation solution to refund the travel time to the stakeholders. This way, PGA can ensure all the stakeholders can attend the tournament in the Bethpage Park on time and conveniently. Since it’s a part of corporate hospitality program, the flight services are limited and specialized.
The Bethpage State Park will host an on-site landing zone as well as the departure zone. The helicopter will transport clients from their suites to this landing zone and vice versa. However, this landing zone is still minutes away from the PGA championship location even though covered in one area. Land transportation would be still needed to shuttle the stakeholders for the landing zone to the venue.
Open for Booking:
Even though it seems to be an exclusive service, PGA actually opens the helicopter hospitality programs for booking. It’s not a monochrome service as PGA and Bell actually provide several types of flight program for the championship.
