If you’re looking for a place to shoot your new music video, Robin Petgrave might have the solution. He’s the owner and Chief Pilot of Celebrity Helicopters in Los Angeles, California. He provides a creative opportunity to push the limits, sightsee, spice up your Instagram profile, celebrate a special occasion, or get the perfect shot for your upcoming music video. Even Billboard Hot 100 platinum recording artist YG utilized Robin’s services for his single “Why You Always Hatin” featuring Drake. But, you don’t have to be a Grammy award-winner to afford Robin. Celebrity Helicopters is a place where anyone can soar the skies in various aircrafts on any sized budget. From date nights, and dinner flights, to music videos and adventures to some of LA’s hidden gems, it’s a fully customizable experience. With options for hors d’oeuvres, champagne, and candlelight meals, Robin does his best to make you feel like a celebrity.
Kristen, one of his most recent clients, said “Robin is the best there is, hands down, when it comes to helicopter pilots! I’ve been on many flights with other companies, but none of them compare to him.” Robin has always had a taste for adventure and started his career as a Hollywood Stunt Pilot. This may be why Celebrity Helicopters offers an option to hang out the door thousands of feet in the air, while Robin snaps a pic with the city beneath you! He once captivated a skeptical film crew during a video shoot by landing a helicopter, not once, not twice, but eight times in the backyard of the Grammy award-winning rapper, Dr. Dre. His works at Celebrity Helicopters are characterized by his experience in the entertainment industry, in conjunction with his flying skills, and photographic eye for productions.
He’s also a Gold Seal Flight Instructor, airplane pilot, Museum Executive Director and mentor. He’s accumulated more than 10,000 hours of flight experience for helicopter tours, charters, flight trainings, helicopter transport and production work in the entertainment industry. His efforts have been recognized by Oprah Winfrey, NBC, CNN, Fox, The Root, Vibe and more.
Robin discovered his passion for flying after joining the Civil Air Patrol. He graduated from the University of Connecticut with a fine arts degree in acting with a specialization in communications. Amazingly, he qualified for the Olympic Games, but for various reasons decided to move to Los Angeles in search of an acting career. While in Los Angeles, he obtained his Commercial Helicopter Pilot License and Certified Flight Instructor Certificate. Soon after, he started his own helicopter company, which grew to a business of $3.5 million a year!
He eventually became a motivational speaker and discovered his passion for helping the community. Robin believes that all children are capable of achieving success. For that reason, the majority of the earnings from Celebrity Helicopters is donated to the Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum (TAM); which has an exhibit of flying gear and Tuskegee Airmen memorabilia. It’s also one of the only interactive aviation museums in the United States that aim to inspire children through practical participation via static screens, and virtual reality aircraft simulators.
Robin has the extraordinary ability to make a difference. Whether you’re looking to explore the history of aviation, enroll your children in an after school program or take a flick for the gram, Robin Petgrave could very well be your best option.
