Raphael Sauleau, CEO, IYC said the collaboration offers clients the opportunity to combine the freedom of yachting with the convenience and speed of helicopter transport. “Whether our clients are looking for a convenient way to join us during the Palm Beach International Show, fly from Nantucket to the Hamptons for dinner, head over to their preferred golf course, or travel to and from their jet, we look forward to providing a seamless journey together with HeliFlite,” he said.

“Whether on the sea or in the sky, we want to make our clients’ journeys count, save them time, and maximize their travel with memorable experiences so they can not only enjoy their destination, but cherish the journey there too,” added Sauleau.
