Holiday helicopter rides
Ten-minute helicopter rides over the Mendenhall Valley to view Christmas lights will be from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., Dec. 16, leaving from the north wing of the airport terminal. All flights are first-come, first-served.
The $25 per person donation will benefit Neurofibromatosis and the Lions Club sight projects. The event is sponsored by Coastal Helicopters and the Mendenhall Flying Lions Club. Coastal helicopters will provide the helicopters, and the pilots will donate their time. Fuel will be provided by Coastal Fuel and Petro Marine.
Valley residents are encouraged to turn on all their holiday lights. For more information, contact Coastal Helicopters at 789-5600.
