“LA Helicopters provided our team with a truly unique experience and level of service in our Sanford vineyard tour. The entire trip from booking, to pickup, to tour, to return home was handled perfectly and professionally by the LAH team. Sanford rolled out the red carpet, from a sparkling wine waiting for us as we landed at the vineyard, through a personalized tour and lunch right on their beautiful grounds. Our pilot was knowledgeable, experienced and had just the right touch to make the experience incredible. I highly recommend this program for anyone seeking an event to remember for staff, clients and friends.”
