Every Formula 1 Grand Prix is a big deal – a star-studded event for the ages – and this year was bigger and better than ever. For the first time, the riveting race was brought to Miami, making it the eleventh city in the United States to hold a Formula 1 race since the championship began. Previous races were held in Riverside, Sebring, Watkins Glen, Long Beach, Detroit, Dallas, Phoenix, Indianapolis, and Austin. Next year, the drivers will compete on a new track in Las Vegas.
HeliFlite at F1 Miami Grand Prix
And while the Grand Prix always attracts famous spectators from around the globe, Sunday’s race set a new bar for celebrity attendance as the stars clamored to be part of F1’s first return to the Sunshine State since 1959. Many celebrities turned out to celebrate the incredible moment of the first Miami Grand Prix, including David Beckham, Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Serena, and Venus Williams, Michelle Obama, James Corden, Ashton Kutcher, Michael Douglas, Caitlyn Jenner, Will.i.am, Pharrell, DJ Khaled, Calvin Harris, Bad Bunny, and Maluma, to name a few.
HeliFlite was there, on the ground and in the air, watching all of the action live. We were honored to fly VIP guests, announcers, and performers directly to and from the track for the race, performances, and celebrations.
Catch a glimpse of the view from above for yourself in this video of race commentators Simon Lazenby, Martin Brundle, Jenson Button & Danica Patrick taking a HeliFlite joyride over Miami. The footage shot from our helicopter was used at the beginning of the global broadcast to show the grid and the track from exciting new heights.

We also had the pleasure of flying singer Maluma and his girlfriend Susi Gomez to the race for his performance.
