Photos & Video: SailGP’s Helicopter In Bermuda

May 15, 2022 | 2 Comments

The island currently has a helicopter flying over us, which was brought to Bermuda to assist in the media coverage of the SailGP event, which is being broadcast internationally this weekend.

While common in other countries, helicopters are that usual here, however we do have occasional visits from them, which are almost always connected to overseas military, the U.S. Coast Guard or major sailing events. Due to the helicopter, the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority instituted a temporary No-Fly Zone for “non-participating aircraft” and drones over the Great Sound for the duration of the event.
