“It is relatively easy to be thankful for the most important and obvious parts of life…but truly happy people find ways to give thanks for the little, insignificant trifles…the smell of fall in the air, the fragment of a song that reminds you of when you were a kid. ”
Yacht owners take flight
Last fall at the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show, Eurocopter was in attendance-not to buy a yacht, but to sell a helicopter, or two or three, in a market in which helicopters are much in demand. In fact, it is rare these days to see any yacht longer than about 120 feet come off the design board without a helicopter flight deck. On larger vessels that must be anchored out rather than tied up dockside, the on-board helicopter is more than a luxury. For ship-to-shore transportation when the water is rough, and for flights to and from the nearest airport, mega-yacht owners consider it a necessity.
