Light Flights over Juneau

Coastal Helicopters and the Juneau Mendenhall Flying Lions Club have scheduled their Light Flights fundraiser to take place Friday, Dec. 18, between 4:30-7:30 p.m. at Gate 1 in the North Wing of the Airport Terminal Building, lower level.

Juneau residents are invited to head to the airport for the annual helicopter ride that will take passengers over the Mendenhall Valley to view Christmas lights. “This is a magical time for people of all ages,” said Norton.

The flight begins at the Juneau Airport and goes toward the Mendenhall Glacier, and back to the airport. All flights are weather permitting.

Tickets cost $30 per person.

“Every year we get asked if we will take reservations,” Mike Norton, president of the Mendenhall Flying Lions, said. “This event is on a first-come basis. Once we ticket our quota, we will close ticket sales for the evening.”

Three helicopters are provided by Coastal Helicopters and all Coastal personnel (pilots, mechanics and admin) donate their time for these flights. Petro Marine donates the fuel for this event.

Proceeds from this fundraising event go towards the Children’s Tumor Foundation and Lions club projects.

For more information, contact Coastal Helicopters at 789-5600 or Mike Norton at 957-1697.
