South Bay Helicopter - Committed to Excellence
South Bay Helicopter Service, Inc. was established in April 1997, to service corporate transportation needs. Since then, South Bay has evolved into a full service charter company. With the purchase of the AS-350B Astar helicopter the company began expanding into aerial filming activities to include major motion pictures, television commercials, music and corporate videos, and still photography. With the addition of an Agusta 109C, South Bay began it's helicopter IFR (instrument flight rules) program. South Bay is the only local charter company that is certified by the FAA to fly in low weather conditions as the airlines do. In November 2004, South Bay purchased a new Agusta A109E Power. This gave South Bay an increase in capabilities with increased performance. In June 2008, we added our current Agusta A109S Grand, this further increased our capabilities, and added extra passenger comfort. South Bay is a premier provider for helicopter services and has an excellent record and reputation.
South Bay Helicopter Service, Inc. is a safe, efficient, dependable and cost effective provider of helicopter charter services to the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. We can fly you to a meeting in San Jose / Silicon Valley, the races at Laguna Seca or take you on a wine tasting tour in Napa. South Bay offers a wide range of charter services to a discerning clientele, from business executives to motion picture production studios. In addition to the traditional VIP charter, South Bay Helicopter provides many specialized services such as aerial photography, aerial cinematography and aerial surveys.
South Bay Helicopter employs highly-trained pilots whose flight hours and credentials exceed FAA requirements. Our pilots are in command of a well-maintained fleet of helicopters, and the Company enjoys an unblemished safety record. South Bay Helicopter is proud to provide a premier helicopter charter experience, whatever your flight needs may be.
Hotel Café, Hollywood
May 3rd 2017
Angie, Ruth and Martin had the great pleasure of attending a performance by James McCartney at The Hotel Café in Hollywood on 3rd May, when he gave a varied and heartfelt performance of self penned songs from his album Marshmallow Maiden, He is currently on a US tour, which runs through May 13th, when it ends up in British Columbia, Canada.
He showed his talent and passion for his music, and can be proud to bear the name of his late grandfather, Jim McCartney.
It was an emotional reunion for all, and Angie told James that she had not seen him since she held him in her arms at a London Nursing Home when he was two days old in 1977.
After the show, the group hunkered down in the Green Room to catch up on news, and exchange stories of what we had all been up to over the years, and Angie was particularly warmed that he held her hand and treated her with fondness and respect. It was certainly a night to remember, and, as Angie put it “one to cross off the bucket list.”
She gave him a copy of her book: My Long and Winding Road, which contains pictures of his Mum and Dad and sisters on the farm in Scotland before he was born.
Ruth was able to impart personal stories about his Mum, whom he obviously misses greatly. All in all, it was a memorable experience.
Arcada Theatre, St. Charles, IL 04-28-2017
Just 40 minutes west of Chicago is the beautiful little town of St. Charles where the Liverpool Legends were playing a show with special guests Ruth and Angie McCartney at the historic Arcada Theatre. The venue was established in the 1920's and has all the charms of the Gatsby era gone by.
Refurbished by Ron Onesti, the Arcada is a true gem in the world of performance halls and theatres.
The show itself was a "must see" for all serious Beatles fans, for not only was the audience taken back to the Beatle days with music and multimedia video by the Liverpool Legends, but also enjoyed the precious stories behind the songs from the personal memories of Angie and Ruth McCartney. From "Yesterday", "Blackbird", "Hey Jude" and "Golden Slumbers", to the break up of the Beatles in 1969, the ladies held nothing back and shared their insights and stories with an appreciative audience. Meanwhile, upstairs in the newly launched speakeasy, replete with flapper girls and a private collection of crystal, antiques, Victrolas, shoe shine stand and furniture worthy of a museum, the dinner and cocktail crowd enjoyed a jazz show from our ueber-talented friend Antonia Bennett and her band.
Thank you Ron Onesti (the PT Barnum of the 21st Century), and your fabulous crew, we will be back for more for sure!

For her upcoming documentary “Here's a Story” featuring strong and powerful women who make an impact on society, we filmed at The Watts Coffee House interviewing Sweet Alice Harris, re-living the Watts Riots of the 60's and what changed in the community.
(Martin Nethercutt, Director)
Dr. Angie McCartney: “Mid March saw us meeting with some wonderful people at The Watts Coffee House in Los Angeles. Sgt. Jack Richter of LAPD set the wheels in motion, and it was coordinated by Hannah Levian of Coro Southern California. I had prepared a script of 9 questions to put to Sweet Alice Harris, Executive Director of “Parents of Watts.” After the first question – script be damned! I abandoned it when I saw that Sweet Alice was on a roll. Her tales of her experiences were incredible.
She is a much honored lady who lived through the Watts riots, and formed her non profit organization, which is thriving today, providing shelter, food, clothing, educational opportunities, mentoring, and a million other benefits to the people of Watts. Her Thanksgiving and Christmas parties are legendary, when she doles out turkeys to families, toys and even 400 bicycles to children in the community. She was ably assisted by her daughter Linda Harris-Forster and granddaughter Jonetta Woods, and we could have shot an entire movie around Sweet Alice alone. Donations can be made via the website: parentsofwatts.org.

Las Vegas | March 3-5
We had a great time watching the Rugby 7's event at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, with over 30,000 people in attendance. We enjoyed the show where most of the Rugby playing nations were represented. The great thing about the 7's is that it is "short attention span theater." The games are 15 minutes each, two halves at 7 minutes and 1 minute break in between. So, if you missed a game, not to worry, the next one is right around the corner. From Pacific Islanders like Samoa, Fiji, Australia and New Zealand, to the European countries and of course Canada and the U.S., this is what makes this tournament so colorful and fan friendly. Graciously hosted by Bill Tatham (Owner, Grand Prix Rugby), we had Sam Boyd Stadium tower seating, great company, food and drinks. This sport is definitely on the rise in the US, and we consider ourselves lucky to be part of something new and fresh in the world of sports.
