Back in 2012, Triangle Business Member, Seacoast Helicopters out of Portsmouth, began its adventure in the New Hampshire sky. Founded by Bruce and Karen Cultrera, the company offers private charters, “Dream Flights” where the customer takes control, plus they also have opportunities to become a licensed pilot through their flight school and internship programs. However, they are most well known for their tours of the beautiful New England Seacoast. Whether over the historic city of Portsmouth, above the Isle of Shoals, or up the Maine coastline, customers can choose what they wish to see once they take-off in the signature, bright red helicopters.
With the popularity of Seacoast Helicopters’ scenic tours, the company utilizes its unique commodity to boost contributions for efforts and charities which they support. Bruce and Karen donate their services to several fundraisers that are dedicated to community service and leadership in and around the Portsmouth area.
Seacoast Helicopters champions their ongoing work with Gather NH, a social service agency serving the seacoast of New Hampshire. The Cultreras raise funds by hosting an annual game in Portsmouth’s Market Square, with the grand prize of a helicopter ride for three people. All funds raised during the game are donated to assist Gather in their efforts to fulfill the needs of area families. Gather offers nutritious meals to families in need of assistance through innovative programming like their “Pantry Market” shopping experience, “Meals 4 Kids” which provides ten meals per week to kids during school breaks, a local CSA program for fresh produce from Wake Robin Farm in Stratham, and “Meals 4 Seniors” to ensure food and personal care needs are covered for those who may not have transportation.
Seacoast Helicopters is very proud of their involvement with the many charitable organizations for which they advocate. As a business that is drawn to social responsibility, Triangle is proud to support Seacoast Helicopters as they expand their outreach.
