Pilot Nigel’s 2018 Adventures

At PrivateFly, we are as passionate about travel and aviation as our clients. When we’re not in and around aircraft for work, we don’t miss the opportunity to travel for pleasure.

In addition to moving between our offices in the UK, Fort Lauderdale, and Boston, we love discovering new destinations around the world. But one member of our team is particularly well-traveled: Nigel the Pilot Bear never fails to slip into our luggage or to jump onboard with clients.

Here are a few of Nigel’s highlights for 2018:

Snowmobile Tour in Lapland

Nigel started the year traveling to Lapland, where he enjoyed a reindeer ride and a snowmobile safari through the stunning winter landscapes of Finland.

 Sunbathing in Cornwall

A day in Cornwall when the sun is shining can’t be beat! Nigel enjoyed a trip to Booby’s Bay this year – a spot in the UK famous for its sandy dunes and surfing.

Fly into Newquay Airport by private jet – the King Air turboprop is the most popular (and cost-effective) aircraft for this trip.

 Biking Around Lake Geneva

In May, part of the UK-based PrivateFly team ventured to Geneva to attend EBACE. CEO Adam Twidell and European Marketing Manager Cha decided to make their trip even more meaningful by joining forces with BACA as part of the BACA Bikes the Lake 180km cycling challenge; they biked around Lake Geneva to raise funds for fly2help, a charity that provides flights for children in need.

Many of our clients enjoy an active vacation, so feel free to follow Nigel’s lead, even if just to take in the views of Switzerland.
