Flexjet is inviting yachting fans to tour its Sikorsky S-76 super-midsize helicopter at the Palm Beach International Boat Show.

The annual superyacht event runs March 21-24, 2024.

The helicopter will be perched between Dock D and E near the Worth Avenue Yachts display.

There will be a private party for Flexjet owners.

“Yachting and private aviation are a perfect duo, and the Palm Beach International Boat Show provides us with a unique opportunity to showcase our helicopters to a clientele that appreciates finely appointed cabins, dedicated crews, and travel not limited by airport runways,” said Eli Flint, president of Flexjet’s helicopter division.

He added, “Demand for our helicopter service in Florida and the Bahamas is surging, and this event allows us to engage with people who want to learn more about our unique capabilities.”

Last-mile strategy

Flexjet helicopter is part of its last-mile strategy.

The on-demand private helicopter service is available in South Florida, New York, New England, and the U.K.

Flexjet helicopters are complimentary to fractional owners for a limited number of airport transfers within service areas.

Fractional owners can use their fractional shares at an interchange rate to fly additional helicopter trips.

Members of sister jet card seller Sentient Jet also get discounts.

The Sikorsky S-76 helicopters feature multiple redundancy measures, including two certified pilots, dual autopilots, two engines, a four-blade rotor system, and emergency floatation gear built into the helicopter.

According to a press release, “Since Flexjet owns and operates the helicopter fleet, it exercises a level of quality and control in scheduling, staffing, and maintenance that no other private jet firm can offer.”

Last year, Flexjet Helicopter added the Bahamas to its Primary Service Area.

North Bimini is just 25 minutes from Miami’s Opa Locka Executive Airport.

Flexjet North Miami helipad

Most recently, Flexjet acquired helicopter access to the Warren Henry Auto Group Parking Garage’s helipad in North Miami.

The helipad is minutes from popular destinations such as Aventura and Sunny Isles.

The helicopter’s maximum travel range is 300 nautical miles or two hours and a half minutes of flight time.
