Last year, Kobe Bryant gave an interview saying he decided to use helicopters as his mode of transport so that he can make time to spend with his children.

“Traffic started to get really bad. I was sitting in traffic and I ended up missing a school play because I was sitting in traffic.

That is when I decided to look into helicopters that I can use to get down and back in 15 minutes. That is when it started.

My routine was always the same. Weights in the morning, take my kids to school, fly down practice like crazy do my extra work, media and do everything I needed to know, fly back to carpool line and pick the kids up. My wife was like I can pick them up and I was like no, I wanna do that because you have road trips sometimes you do not see your kids because of the travels. so I get to see them and spend time with them, even if it is 20 minutes in the car I want that” Kobe said
