Whiteplains Plantation Announcement

I wanted to forward this along to our neighbors in Whiteplains.  If you feel compelled to participate in any way, it will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, Alice   


To all Advanced Helicopter Friends and Associates:

                The 2nd anniversary of the crash that claimed the lives of two employees of Advanced and two friends working with the Advanced Helicopter Youth Foundation (AHYF) is about four weeks away. Since that fateful day in 2009 the Foundation has struggled to keep going, for obvious reasons.

We were looking for a way to get some wind under the wings when I was contacted by Dan Hart, Jeff Nordaas’ brother. Jeff was the pilot who perished in the accident. He informed me that he and his brothers were organizing a Memorial Golf Tournament in Jeff’s honor and that the proceeds would be donated to the Foundation to continue Jeff’s work!

This has been an answer to our/my prayers for the future of our charitable work. I feel that Jeff’s brothers setting this beautiful example and pushing forward has given all of us the push and the drive that we so urgently needed. Their example is so much appreciated!

I’m asking all employees, associates and customers of Advanced Helicopter to participate in whatever manner they can. I would love to see as many play in the tournament as possible. If you cannot or do not want to play, you may want to sponsor a hole or donate to the cause in some way. Please visit the link below and give your support.



The tournament is on July 22nd 2011 which is the day before the 2nd anniversary of the accident.

Thank you all so much for the support you have shown to the families and the AHC family over the last two years, we all appreciate it. In order to honor those that we lost, it’s time to move the mission forward. A special thanks to Dan Hart and his brothers for providing the kick-start that we needed!
