Becker Helicopters Supports St Vinnie’s fight against poverty.


On 9 May, Mike Becker, the Chief Pilot and Flight Instructor at Becker Helicopters Flight Academy, landed his helicopter on Coolum Chase to deliver a scenic flight voucher to our State President, John Forrest.

The scenic flight, for four people over the Sunshine Coast, is just one of the valuable prizes being offered at this year’s St Vincent de Paul Cent Auction at Coolum.

It’s not the first timer Becker Helicopters has supported charities and causes. Recently their aircraft were engaged with recovery efforts following Cyclone Debbie, and the list of charities which receive their ongoing support is long.

Asked why he donated this generous prize, Mike said “it was for a very good cause, and the Society is always there when people are going through tough times.” He also believes in local businesses supporting charities in their own community. Locals helping out locals.

The Cent Auction will take place in Coolum on 5 June 2017, at St Peter’s Catholic Church, Elizabeth Street, Coolum. Starting at 8.30 am, and for a $3 entry fee, guests will be able to view the more than 200 prizes on offer while enjoying a delicious morning tea. Auction tickets can be purchased for $1 a sheet.
