Today’s “vacation adventures” often turn into “vacation disasters” when airborne adventurers offer to get you “up front and personal” to spectacular scenery. Whether its zooming over a frozen fjord in a float plane or hovering in a helicopter over tropical paradise, some of today’s vacation providers sell you “exciting airborne adventures” to get you up close and personal to places you’ve never been. But lately there’s been one significant drawback: a one-way ticket to a fatal crash whether it be a helicopter crash or an airplane crash. What was supposed to be a “airborne adventure to there and back…” never made it back because the helicopter or airplane was involved in an accident. At least 11 people have recently died and 10 others injured from vacation flight crashes in helicopters and airplanes!
As recently as May of this year 3 tourists were killed while on vacation when their helicopter crashed in Hawaii. Also in May of this year, two floatplanes collided in mid-air in Alaska and those airplanes crashed during a deadly “sight-seeing adventure” with tourists on board. Following that multi-death tragedy, another deadly sight-seeing event involving an airplane crash killed two more people in Alaska. Some of these recent deadly “sight seeing adventures” were booked by the cruise provider, which often times does not have the expertise to select experienced airborne providers to conduct safe, airborne adventures.
