You can conveniently schedule your time here:

Why: Likely a once in an unprecedented, once in a lifetime chance to ride on the predecessor platform used by Special Mission Units in movies like BlackHawk Down and the “Rescue” Mission Demonstrations every even numbered years at SOFIC.  Air Speed and Excitement level are up to you with Safety being first and foremost.  We have retained a set of professional photographers and videographers (Drone shots included) to capture the event for you to share your experience. 


Other Details:

Arrive 30 minutes early for check in at the Marriott Waterside. You will be greeted by a member from our Beyond SOF team and when the Suburban arrives, you will be notified. From there you will be escorted to the helipad at Tampa General Hospital.  You will receive a safety brief and depart for the skies for 10 minutes.  Fly overs include the SOFIC Convention, Tampa Bay Area and Eastern portions of Tampa.  Prior to landing, the pilot will bring the helicopter to a hover in front of Jackson’s restaurant for a photo opportunity of you in the helicopter with the Convention Center in the background.  Following the photograph hover, you will land at Tampa General Hospital.  Following the flight, their will be other photo/video opportunities provided on site.

This event has an FAA Approved LOA.  Insurance and Maintenance documents can be provided upon request at

We are doing what we strive to do best (the unlikely and impossible), provided that Krom grants us the ability to have the Helo downtown for more photo ops in the vicinity of the Bad Monkey in Ybor City.  This will be announced and posted in an update here and on Soc Media.

*New customers: we are offering a SOFIC 2019 recruiting special.  Contact Nilda at for details.
