Why were you inspired to do this?
I had always wanted to fly in a Helicopter. I was giving my buddy, Chris a tour of Malibu and he said the view of the homes, ocean and mountain side wasn't great from Hwy 1. He was right!
What were 3 things you did to make this happen?
We had 30 minutes to make it happen. We called all the local LA helicopter charters. We got one from Van Nuys ( LA Heli Tours) to pick us up at the Santa Monica Airport.
We were short on time so we hustled there for our 40 minute flight.
We met at the Santa Monica airport and within minutes our chopper was ready for us. That's when I started to turn blue!
How did you feel once you had accomplished this?
It was an insane rush. Planning the trip was a ridiculous rush as we had no time. Then when we were in the Helicopter I was a little freaked. Our pilot looked all of 21 years old. We buzzed the malibu beach, the homes and he pointed out a few key spots. No sign of Britney pool-side!
Additional notes and tips:
Book in Advance! It's not that expensive. Do it. The homes on the Malibu coast are ridiculous.
