Pembroke Pines Man Dies In France Plane Crash

FRANCE (CBSMiami/Herald) – A Pembroke Pines family is grieving after losing their son in a plane crash in France.

CBS4’s news partner The Miami Herald reports that Michael Helton, 24, was part of a three-person flight crew on board a Gulfstream G-IV that crash-landed in Le Castellet, France. Michael’s father, Robert, said the plane crash occurred Friday evening.

The three-member crew also included a 60-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman. Their identities have not been released.

In a statement released Saturday, Universal Jet Aviation, a Boca Raton-based aviation company, confirmed that the private jet was part of its fleet. The company said there were no passengers on board.

“Our focus at this time is on supporting the families of our crew,” a spokesperson for the company said by phone.

The crash is under investigation.

    For example, give workers the break day to volunteer as a part of
    a neighborhood-wide day of service, arrange volunteer efforts
    by way of your inner teams permitting them to volunteer time that is in keeping with their abilities (i.e.

    your accounting workforce may present a day of bookkeeping companies
    for a nonprofit) or permit employees to take part in individual volunteer applications during work hours (i.e.

    attend a nonprofit board meeting).
