Arrive at Super Bowl in stylePosted: Updated:
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- It's crowded around the Valley with the Super Bowl and the Waste Management Phoenix Open in town, but there is an option to help you rise above it all.
It's the only way to fly to the biggest game of the year. Yes, you can really arrive in style on Super Bowl Sunday -- on board a stunning helicopter.
A tour company will have four helicopters to give passengers a once-in-a-lifetime ride. That's four at $3 million apiece. Now that's first class!
Papillon Helicopters is the largest air tour operator in the world and lead pilot Rick Green will be taking a break from his day job flying tours over the Grand Canyon and he'll be shuttling some lucky folks to a great game.
A big Arizona Cardinals fan, he is now sort of rooting for the Seattle Seahawks due to some pressure from the boss.
"Usually I'm a home-team person but since our corporate office is up in Seattle, I just became a Seahawks fan -- that is if I want to get paid," Green joked.
A luxurious van will pick you up and drop you at your helicopter at Scottsdale Airport, and then you get to do what I do every day in my chopper -- fly past all the traffic.
So if you can pony up $599, your Super Bowl Sunday will be even more super.
