Our airline company, approved by the civil aviation authority, has a homogeneous fleet of 5 Bell 206 helicopters with a capacity of 4 or 6 passenger seats and 5 professional pilots.

This type of helicopter is very versatile, it is used for tourist flights but also for aerial work, heliporting, passenger transfers, aerial photography, parachute jumping...

You can rent one or more helicopters and fly over the site of your choice (Loire castles, your home) from the site you want (hotel, home, airfield, company...) in private

A helicopter ride is a perfect gift idea for family, colleagues or clients.

  • The landing is smooth and your ground assistant will lead you to a secure area

1/Do flights depend on weather conditions?

Helicopter flights do not depend on weather conditions. However, heavy rain, fog and strong winds may force us to postpone the flight.

Depending on the option you have selected, your flight will be rescheduled or refunded.

2/ Which departure points for a helicopter tour?

It all depends on the service you have chosen.

If you have booked a first flight or a panoramic helicopter flight, the departure point will be our heliport in Neuvy-le-Roi, north of Tours.

If you have rented one or more helicopters, the flights will depart from the site you have chosen (airport, hotel, home, reception hall, company...)

Our operations manager will analyse the desired departure location and confirm the landing zone.

The departures of the helicopter flights are out of town. The optimum area should ideally be about 1000m², with a clear take-off axis and no power lines.

3/Are children allowed on board?

Children are accepted on board from 3-4 years old for short flights accompanied by their parents.

4/Do you need to be in good physical condition to take a helicopter ride?

Our activity is open to all. We have the Tourism and Disability label.

People with reduced mobility are taken on board by their companions with the help of our hostess on the ground.

Wheelchairs are not accepted on board.

As with all airlines, pregnant women are welcome up to their 7th month of pregnancy.

5/Is it possible to take the controls and fly a helicopter?

You can experience the incredible thrill of flying this superb machine and live the dream of being a pilot!

We offer an introduction to helicopter piloting with our school Air Touraine Academy. After 30 minutes of theory where the instructor will explain the functioning of the helicopter, you will take the controls during a 15 minutes flight!

Our flight school in Tours also offers theoretical and practical courses to validate your private helicopter pilot licence.

6/ What do we need to bring on the day of our helicopter flight?

Our ground staff will ask you for proof of reservation and your ID.

No special clothing is required, but we ask the ladies to avoid dresses, which are lifted by the helicopter's breath!

Bags and hats should be left in your vehicle.

You can take your mobile phone to capture these magical moments
