The Kentucky Derby isn't only one of the biggest days of the year in sports, it's also one of the biggest days of the year for betting. That means Las Vegas is a prime location for enjoying the horse race commonly known as the most exciting two minutes in sports.

Beer Park

The rooftop bar at Paris Las Vegas will host an all-day viewing party. Guests will be served Mint Juleps and the Kentucky Hot Brown, a traditional Bluegrass favorite made with turkey. You can also place a bet on your favorite horse on-site with the in-house sportsbook.

Virgil's

The new barbecue spot at The LINQ is offering a few drinks specials, including the Triple Crown (made with Old Forester Bourbon, Branca Menta and fresh lemons) and $6 shots made with Templeton Rye and Branca Menta.

Posted by Cirrus Aviation on Apr 24, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Like many Cirrus Aviation passengers, you’re ready to fly virtually anywhere on the globe for either business or leisure. But you may want to keep your plans open for a trip you've never made before: a Las Vegas jet charter flight to Cape Canaveral, Florida, where you could board a Falcon Heavy rocket ship for a trip circling the moon.

Choosing Among Popular Las Vegas Private Jets

Posted by Cirrus Aviation on Apr 21, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Even frequent travelers flying on Las Vegas private jets with Cirrus Aviation know it can be tough choosing among a selection of elite aircraft. Like trying to decide on whether to take a Mercedes or a Lexus to the airport, deciding between the Beechjet 400A and the Challenger 604 isn't the easiest choice to make. Consider what both have to offer.

The Beechjet 400A

The Beechjet 400A – with seating for seven people, a crew of two and a cruising range of 1,500 miles – is powered by two Pratt and Whitney JT15D-5 turbo-fan engines. Each engine produces 2,900 pounds of thrust.

Cirrus passengers who traveled on the Beechjet 400, the 400A's predecessor, usually notice huge design improvements between the two models. The 400A is constructed primarily of aerospace light alloys, while three fuel tanks – one in the fuselage and one in each wing – hold a total of nearly 5,000 pounds of fuel. The 400A is designed to draw fuel from the fuselage compartment first to steady the wing's natural bending movements.

Mission Impossible: The Best Vegan Burger in Las Vegas

The evolution of food has taken a new twist in Las Vegas - and comes in the form of a burger without any meat. Wynn Resorts, a longtime leader in offering vegan and vegetarian dining options, has recently introduced the Impossible Burger to diners on the Strip.

So what is it? The Impossible Burger gets its name by being 100% meatless, yet still being able to have the taste, smell, texture and adaptability of real beef. Unlike other veggie patties that are simply heated up and placed in between a bun, this new alternative can actually be molded, crumbled and transformed through cooking, just like real ground beef. Produced by Impossible Foods, a company based on Northern California, the burger is made from wheat and potato protein with natural binders, coconut fat and a little bit of soy protein. The authentic flavor comes from leghemoglobin (or "hemo") which is found in all living things, but is especially abundant in cow. It's basically the molecule that makes beef taste like beef. A meat-free version of hemo, produced by fermentation, is cooked with vitamins, amino acids and sugars to give the Impossible Burger a rich, hearty flavor and authentic red color in raw form.

Flying Taxis are Coming Soon

Posted by Cirrus Aviation on Apr 17, 2017 8:00:00 AM

With 10 million self-driving cars expected on roadways by the year 2020, it’s not the biggest stretch to imagine the world’s first flying taxi.

That stretch - once viewed as being at least 10 years away - just got one step closer now that Dubai has announced airborne taxis will be available to whisk passengers around its congested city this July.

If you’re accustomed to booking a private Las Vegas jet charter through Cirrus Aviation, the concept of flight probably captured your imagination – and held it there – a long time ago. But the rest of the world is still catching its breath; half incredulous, half skeptical that one of the most expensive and elite cities in the world might be the first to accomplish this milestone. If Dubai officials look carefully in the rearview mirror, they will see plenty of competition behind them.

Flying taxis could relieve congestion

The BBC reports that passengers in Dubai will use a touchscreen to select a destination before the Ehang 184 taxi shows up, just as a taxi (or ridesharing service) on the ground would. The autonomous electric drone can accommodate individual passengers who weigh up to 220 pounds. The flying taxis will be “auto-piloted” by a command center, with no controls inside the craft. On a single charge, the drone will be able to travel 31 miles.

Book a Las Vegas Private Jet for the National Association of Broadcasters Trade Show

Posted by Cirrus Aviation on Apr 14, 2017 8:00:00 AM

So you’re attending the annual National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas, and now the tips and advice are streaming in via email, text and phone.

But what's all this advice about wearing comfortable shoes and drinking plenty of water? Don't people know you're going to the world's largest electronic media show? What do they think -- that you're going to be running a race?

The answer to both questions is an emphatic yes. The NAB Show has been called the “mother of all trade shows” for its breathtaking size, number of exhibits and the allure of rubbing elbows with some of the top names in the media business. Taking a quiet and comfortable Las Vegas private jet will give you plenty of time to study some survival tips from show veterans who have been there, done that and are still catching their breath.

It’s a fair question, but the sand functions as a mere backdrop for one of the most eagerly anticipated music festivals in America. Held over two consecutive weekends in April, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival effectively kicks off the summer concert season and sets the bar high for other events to follow with an eclectic blend of rock, indie, hip hop and electronic dance music.

Posted by Cirrus Aviation on Apr 4, 2017 8:00:00 AM

We're fast approaching what could be the best weekend of the year for a whiskey lover to visit Las Vegas. The Universal Whisky Experience returns for the seventh year in a row at the Wynn and Wynn Encore. It's an upscale event geared towards both experts and those who wish to learn more about the spirit.

"I've been a big whiskey connoisseur and collector for more than 30 years," says Mahesh Patel, the founder of the event. "I wanted to create an experience where we bring the best of the best whiskeys from around the world… Not just Scotch. So Japanese, Irish, American, you name it. All of that stuff."

The main event is the Nth Show, a grand tasting on Friday night, April 7, inside the Beethoven Ballroom at 6:30 p.m. Patel wanted the show to be comfortable and not crowded, so attendance is capped to about 300 people. They'll enjoy 45 booths with 130 brands and 250-300 whiskey samples. "It's about picking and choosing," he says. "It's not a drinking festival. It's an enjoyment festival."
