All those who have booked on True North for the Australia Day function at Rottnest, I can now confirm that we have secured a Jet Ranger from Rotovation and the Pilot will be Dave Adminson. Dave has flown many a sortie for Mark when he was a Skydiving Santa and is a very competant pilot! This is not the chopper BTW, but it is the same sort of thing. They all look the same anyway, don’t they??
The costs are coming in at $190 per person for a 15 minute sortie around the island. We are only going to put 3 photographers in the aircraft at once and the doors will be off, so each photographer will get a total birdseye and unrestricted view of the island.
Of course you will be taking off an landing on the True North and that is an experience in itself!
The day will start with guests joining us at 1030 hrs to 1100 hrs at the latest. True North will then cruise off and the jet Ranger will join us as we leave the heads. On the way over we will conduct a short vessel safety brief followed by a heli safety brief.
Tutorials will start not long after we arrive at Rottnest and the heli flights will also start then so that we can get through the numbers should everyone want to take up the opportunity to have an awesome scenic flight over Rotto.
We will fit lunch in sometime around 1300 hrs, I reckon and then the day will just be more of the same. Rotating between the tutors to hear their words of wisdom, heli excursions, dinghy excursions for those who would like to go ashore and generally enjoying the ambience of True North.
Please either respond to Marks blog, or send him an email at email@example.com if you will be taking up the heli option so that I have an idea of numbers. Of course if there is not enough interest in the heli, we will can it and just run things from the vessel, so please let Mark know.
Not far now to Australia Day and some fun times on True North. Stay safe between now and then!!!
