Looking for a one-of-a-kind summer vacation? We’ve got you covered. Here are our Top Five “experience of a lifetime” events taking place this summer on the U.S. East Coast. Call us to schedule your charter flight to avoid the crowds, arrive in style, and make the most of your vacation!
U.S. Open Tennis Championships
Gorgeous late summer weather, tennis whites, cool blue courts, food from award-winning chefs, and the best tennis action in the USA come together at the U.S. Open Tennis Championship from August 28 – September 10 in Flushing, NY. Flushing Meadows is notoriously tough to get to — awful traffic, driving delays, parking restrictions, crowded mass transit — but you can fly right into neighboring LaGuardia and be courtside in no time. Enjoy the tennis — and the celebs — who flock to the U.S.’s premiere tournament!
Prefer swinging golf clubs instead of tennis racquets? Then fly down to catch the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, NC from August 7-13, 2017. Amazing weather, long green fairways, and the best players in the world meet for one of the most prestigious titles on the tour. Dustin Johnson, Jordan Speith, Justin Thomas, Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Rose, and many more are all expected to hit the links redesigned by Tom Fazio in 2016 looking for their piece of golf history. You can be there! Fly your New Jersey charter flight directly into Charlotte but bypass the commercial crowds. Arrive and leave when you please, bring all the luggage you need, even your own clubs. Fore!
Red Bull Air Race
Now HERE’s something you might not have ever seen! The Red Bull Air Race on October 14-15, 2017 is equal parts speed, agility, showmanship, and nail-biting daredevil nerve! The best aerial pilots in the world race light, fast, robust, aerodynamic propeller planes through a ground-level aerobatics course that’s one of the wildest things you can imagine. All the greats are expected to race, including Kirby Chambliss and Michael Goulian. You can zip into town just about as fast into a convenient regional airport a few miles from the race. It’s a whirlwind trip you’ll be talking about for years!
There is something for everyone at the iconic Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL from August 3-6, 2017! Blink-182, The Killers, Muse, Arcade Fire, Lorde, Chance the Rapper, The Shins, Ryan Adams, Wiz Khalifa, Tegan and Sara, Foster the People, and dozens more will keep you up and dancing all weekend. The crowds are notorious and everyone knows O’Hare is a nightmare, but your experience is going to be different because you’ll take your own charter flight into one of Chicago’s regional airports. Bring your whole crew on the flight and start the fun before you even touch down, then extend it until you land back home. Now that’s the ultimate music experience!
United States Sailboat Show and United States Powerboat Show
Whether you love to be under sail or power, Annapolis, MD is the place to be in October with the United States Sailboat Show (October 5-9, 2017) and United States Powerboat Show (October 12-15, 2017). See dozens and dozens of the newest vessels, meet others who love the water, and just maybe find your dream boat. Annapolis is a beautiful, historic, waterfront location — but it’s pretty far from the Baltimore-Washington area airports. Take a charter flight into an Annapolis regional airport and you’ll be close to the action without the metro DC hassle. Best yet, bring your whole family on the flight to pick out that new boat!
Wherever you choose to take your vacation this year, consider a New Jersey charter flight or Pennsylvania charter flight to get you there. You’ll experience the convenience of departing close to home, arriving close to your destination, bringing your family with you, bringing whatever luggage and special equipment you need, and departing whenever you wish. And, if you have a family member with special needs or a tough work schedule, we can work with you to accommodate the situation. So, dream that big dream vacation then make a call to Leading Edge Charters at (215) 340-0707 so we can make it come true!
