The longer and warmer days of spring offer more time to savor the sunshine and the opportunity for extended travel enjoyment. Spring break provides a much-needed respite from the daily grind, but nowhere embodies this hallowed holiday period better than Florida. 

Whether you are headed to Miami, Palm Beach, Naples, Key West or even the Bahamas, see how Flexjet’s luxurious helicopters can take you to any hotspot in style and at great advantage to your free time.

Flexjet’s innovative offering provides first and last-mile transportation with exceptional ‘door-to-door’ convenience from departure to destination. Our on-demand private helicopters are available throughout Florida, the Northeast Corridor and the U.K. and remain a welcomed alternative to the conventional commute. 

This vertical lift helps you avoid traffic, crowds and spring break gridlock on the ground by effortlessly bypassing those delays. It is ideal for transporting friends and family from area airports to a secluded residence, favorite beach club, golf resort or yacht club. With Florida experiencing regular population growth since 2021, it is easy to see why traffic conditions have become exponentially more challenging to manage with a busy agenda.

Furthermore, Flexjet’s Sikorsky S-76® offers an unparalleled four-decade record of reliability, luxury and superior performance. With the ability to carry up to eight passengers plus two S-76-certified, IFR-qualified pilots – this ride alternative prioritizes safety while being supremely efficient in movement. It also has a maximum range of 300 nautical miles, or about 2 hours and 30 minutes. Within those parameters – there is plenty one can accomplish. 

“This time of year provides us with a unique opportunity to showcase our helicopter to a fresh clientele who may prefer finely appointed cabins and dedicated crews,” said Eli Flint, President of Flexjet’s Helicopter Division. “Demand for our helicopter service in Florida is surging and we are eager to talk with people who want to learn more about our unique differentiator.”

  • Rockwell Island Helipad – Blue Lagoon, Bahamas

Flexjet was recently granted exclusive permission to use the helipad on Rockwell Island, a luxurious mixed-use resort located on the stunning North Bimini Island in The Bahamas. With a mere 25-minute trip from Miami, you can indulge in the breathtaking beauty of Bimini, known for its crystal-clear turquoise waters and diverse marine life. Bimini is also home to the legendary “Bimini Road” – a half-mile-long series of slabs that some enthusiasts consider the Lost Steps of Atlantis. Plan your take-off on a luxurious adventure to the paradise of Bimini today. 

  • Bakers Bay Golf and Ocean Club Helipad – Great Guana Cay, Bahamas
    Coordinates: 26° 40′ 54.588″ N X 77° 08′ 05.708 W

The Abaco Islands, with their pristine beaches and lush tropical flora, are easily one of the most stunning destinations in The Bahamas. But a hidden gem on Great Guana Cay adds an extra layer of exclusivity – a private helicopter ride just 150 miles off the Florida coast. 

Welcome to Baker’s Bay, where you will be enchanted by the picturesque ocean scenery, quaint beachside bungalows and a serene seaport village that will transport you to a different world. Spring break is the perfect excuse to immerse yourself in Bahamian culture, with cobblestone pathways, a waterfront cantina and many beachside activities to entertain you.
