Trump-branded private helicopter lands on new Mar-a-Lago helipad

A Trump-branded private helicopter was spotted at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate on Saturday, landing on a helipad that was built last month. 

The blue and white chopper with "Trump" in bold red letters landed on the newly completed helipad on Trump's private resort, the Palm Beach Daily News reported.

The pad was built to allow the president to travel on Marine One from Palm Beach International Airport to his resort without blocking traffic — though the new travel plan will not change Secret Service-mandated closures surrounding Mar-a-Lago.

President Trump was not in the helicopter when it landed Saturday, and has not yet used the new helipad for his weekend travel, according to the Palm Beach newspaper.

Trump traveled by motorcade back to his resort following a golf outing on Saturday. 

A spokesman for Palm Beach Fire-Rescue told the Palm Beach Daily News that the Trump-branded helicopter was unexpected.

"We were surprised," Sean Baker said about hearing from Secret Service that the chopper was on its way. “This was not something we knew was coming.”

The chopper will reportedly be staged at Mar-a-Lago through Sunday.
