In celebration of World Helicopter Day, Blue Hawaiian Helicopters is offering guests a 15 percent discount on all helicopter tours that occur on August 20.
“We wanted a way to take part in the global celebration of helicopter and aviation awareness, but also connect with the community that has given us incredible talent and so much support,” said Gregg Lundberg, president of Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, in a written release. “Blue Hawaiian has been operating with aloha for 32 years here in the islands and it is truly our pleasure to share the beauty of Hawaii with our guests from all over the world.”
World Helicopter Day is a global celebration held on the third Sunday of August each year aimed at raising awareness of the contributions that helicopters make to society.
Celebrated as one of the world’s greatest engineering innovations, helicopters assist with rescues, disaster relief, transportation, firefighting, medical transfers, power line maintenance, tourism, agriculture and more.
The industry employs more than 500,000 people and there are an estimated 56,200 helicopters worldwide. To learn more about World Helicopter Day, please visit worldhelicopterday.com.
