Anyone in the area may submit a nomination for a deserving healthcare worker to win a scenic flight above the Manhattan skyline.
In an effort to give back to the community that has been working tirelessly to ensure our health and safety, Awesome Flight is accepting nominations that outline why a specific healthcare worker deserves to win. Showcase their work ethic, something they have done that was incredible, or how they have persevered through these unprecedented times.
Awesome Flight will be accepting nominations here, until July 31st. Please state their name, where they work, their job title and why you think they should win a flight for them and a friend. The winner will then be chosen for a flight above Manhattan in August or September on a date that works best for both the winner and Awesome Flight. The flight will leave from Westchester County Airport where the winner will be greeted by Awesome Flight's crew and escorted to their private personal helicopter for their tour of New York City.
"We want to thank all of the COVID-19 first responders who have been working around the clock to combat this virus. Here at Awesome Flight our first priority is always the safety of our passengers and crew, which is why we are so grateful for all the work healthcare employees are doing," said Keith Vitolo, Director of Operations at Awesome Flight. "We would like to offer this contest as a way to personally thank a healthcare worker for all their hard work and to provide them with a well-deserved day off."
Awesome Flight has enacted new steps to protect passengers from COVID19. The latest measures follow Awesome Flight's earlier COVID19 precautions that began at the beginning of the pandemic. These extra protocols include stopping passengers from traveling if they are sick with COVID-19, requiring every pilot and passenger to wear a mask, which are provided if needed, and wiping down all helicopter surfaces with disinfectant after every flight, including headsets, door latches, seats, and seat belts. The Awesome Flight team will also spray and circulate an approved disinfectant throughout the helicopter cabin post-flight.
Awesome Flight has a pristine safety record of more than 5,000 hours. Awesome Flight employs experienced pilots utilizing extensive safety measures in state of the art equipment. Currently Awesome Flight only operates turbine powered helicopters powered by the Roll Royce 300 engine (RR300.) The RR300 engines have had no known in flight failures with over one million hours flown.
