A Helicopter Ride is A Very Unique Experience – Tom Alston
“Anyone can take you to dinner and buy you steak and wine, but I take them flying. Giving a client a ride in a helicopter is a very unique experience.”
Pablo V., a retail store owner in Southern California, says “I’m in the business of water sports, and I own motorcycle stores. Water-craft, ATVs, quads, SUVs, UTVs, we sell all those units. We needed an aircraft to go to all the shows, to all the races, and we take a lot of the clients to fly. The aircraft has been a tremendous aid to do a lot of business. Anyone can take you to dinner and buy you steak and wine, but I take them flying. Giving a client a ride in a helicopter is a very unique experience. It cuts a lot of time and makes it very exclusive. You get to have one-on-one time with your client, where with a commercial airline, you couldn’t. It’s very useful in my business.”
“We go to races in the desert – Ensenada, Mexico and Baja, California – all those races are very difficult to get to. You can get to somewhere close by, but logistics is a problem. It saves me a tremendous amount of time, even with places that you could get to driving – it cuts the time in half. I can fly straight in.”
Pablo worked with Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, who got him an exemption on paying sales tax for the purchase of his helicopter. “What I liked about Aero & Marine Tax Professionals was a straightforward attitude, their not-giving-up attitude, and the simplicity. I would absolutely recommend them! I already have,” concludes Pablo.
