Who is the helicopterís pilot?
ABC Hotel is proud to have as in-house pilot, Willy. Heís one of the countryís most experienced and respected pilots, and his credentials include having flown the President of the Philippines, executing helicopter stunts and camera work for movies, and thousands of hours in flight experience in different parts of the world. He has so much experience that he has even been involved in two crashes! (But none that he himself had ever caused.)
Iíve never ridden a helicopter before. Is it a safe way to travel?
A helicopter can be a very dangerous form of travel in the hands of an inexperienced pilot. Good thing our hotel has Willy! His expertise in flying our helicopter will outreach your expectations. He had even demonstrated, on one hair-raising occasion, how to land the chopper safely after switching off the engine mid-air!
