special arrangements for groups:

rt

 
  • If you like, we can arrange to have the launch site and the base restaurant decorated with Company banners, flags and bunting or displays. 

  • Flower arrangements maybe?  There are also electricity at the restaurant in case you wish to operate any A.V. equipment.

  • Live music can be arranged from a harpist or a string quartet to a real jumpin’ jazz band. 

  • If you wish, your guests tickets will have their Company logo especially incorporated in the design.   The standard “Certificate for Bravery” is very well written and designed but there is scope there for personalising it to your clients Company event. 

  • We can also arrange to have a professional photographer or videographer available to take souvenir pictures of all the activity. 

  • The launch site is convenient enough for the access of a large tour bus, and is big and safe enough to accommodate arrivals of VIPs by helicopter.

  • Some of these extra services are free, and others are available at a reasonable fee.  Just let us know how we can help.

group information:

rt

 

Passenger Lists:

We will need to know, as far in advance as possible, the FIRST AND LAST NAMES, MR/S and APPROXIMATE WEIGHT, of all the passengers, as well as who should fly together (i.e. Couples etc).  This will assist in the smooth running of the morning, including the pre-printing and issue of tickets as well as the Passenger Flight Manifests and the pre-calculation of the load sheets, which are all legally required to be completed prior to the flight. (As you can imagine, this would be very messy and could seriously delay take-off if all this had to be completed on the field).

 

Group Leader Information:

We will also need to know the NAME AND CONTACT NUMBER where the Group Leaders will be staying the night prior to flying, so that in the event of a bad weather forecast we can advise of postponement or cancellation of the trip.
