Well we didn’t really unbox a helicopter but we did get to ride one!
Nokia Philippines invited selected bloggers and press to an “Amazing Everyday Adventure” which highlighted their newest smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 610. We were asked to pick between an underwater adventure, a helicopter ride, or a degustation lunch with a cooking class. We picked the aerial adventure because it’s not everyday you get to play around with an award winning smartphone (the Nokia Lumia 610) while riding on a helicopter!
We arrived at Delta Hangar around 11:30am being the 2nd batch of media and bloggers to take our turn on the chopper ride. Everyone in the group was pretty psyched! This experience was obviously on the bucket list of a lot of people in our group.
Nokia Corporate Communications Manager, Nikka Abes, welcomed us in the hangar. She loaned everyone a Nokia Lumia 610 for us to capture our aerial adventure.
After eating we boarded the helicopter (it could accommodate 4 including the pilot). I can still remember the butterflies flying wildly in my stomach as we started to lift off the ground! We circled around Makati-Fort-and Roxas Boulevard for around fifteen minutes. Here are some of the shots taken aboard the helicopter.
The highlight of the flight was definitely when the pilot purposely made a few sharp turns in succession. I remember thinking to myself “OMG did I get life insurance?!” It’s the same sensation you feel when you do those ridiculous turns on a giant rollercoaster.
After the ride we all gathered again in one of the rooms and Nokia Philippines raffled away a Nokia Lumia 610. We didn’t win that one but we did get a shiny Nokia watch! 😛
Thank you Nokia Philippines for this amazing experience!
