Thanks to a generous donation by member Cxsket, PCEO News was finally able to purchase it's own Maverick Helicopter today. As a result of this acquisition, the cash strapped media company has reduced it's Aerial footage cost from Lester's extortionate rate of $700 per 12 minutes, to a much more reasonable rate of $200 per spawn.
The PCEO founder had this to say:
We've always wanted a helicopter here at PCEO News. They're used daily, but after purchasing the News office and garage we just didnt have the money left over. I've already sold a bunch of personal cars and even sunk my Classic Sentinel refund into the company. Despite this, we were still about 200K short for the cheapest helicopter before today. Getting one now is the icing on the cake and we're very grateful indeed.
Although the donation was reported to be 2 million gta$, the News organisation is still operating at a loss. This is the first significant income for the organisation, which investors say has a current expense bill totalling at least 3 Million gta$
After posing for the cameras, the generous contributor was invited by the founder to ride along on the maiden journey.
oo7im revealed he was not carrying a valid pilots license at the time, but both players went ahead with the flight anyway.
