Introducing Papillon Helicopters’ Grand Canyon Air Tours By Marc Gaspian | http://www.grandcanyonhelicopters.org Flying over the Grand Canyon in a Papillon Helicopter is a must if you vacation in Las Vegas. Launched in 1965, Papillon is the world's most established helicopter sightseeing companies, flying an approximately 600,000 passengers annually on its daily air tours to this national park treasure. Unlike most tour helicopters, Papillon's fleet is comprised of 48 aircraft featuring wraparound vista windows (top-to-bottom, front-to-back visibility), stadium-style seating, and pre-recorded narratives in 11 languages. For you helicopter geeks, Papillon's fleet models include the Bell 206L, 206B, Bell 407, A-Star 350B, BA B2, MD900, EC130, and the deHavilland Twin Otter. Each aircraft is equipped with a two-way sound system. This is essential as it lets you communicate with your pilot, partner, and fellow passengers as you fly over this magnificent landscape. Papillon's helicopter tours originate from the heliport at Boulder City, just due southeast from McCarran International, Las Vegas' official airport. Tours include hotel pick up and drop off, with pick ups happening about 1.5 hours before departure. The tour itself is about four hours. En route to the Grand Canyon's West Rim, you'll fly over historic Hoover Dam, sapphire-blue Lake Mead, the stunning Grand Wash Cliffs, and a host of primordial volcanoes before descending 4,000 feet to the Canyon's ancient floor (carved for millennia by the Colorado River). The make-shift landing pad is a Papillon exclusive. Here, you'll deplane and explore the Canyon floor. Many tours feature a light meal and champagne. If you want to further enhance your Canyon experience, it's worth considering upgrading your tour to include, among other things, El Dorado Canyon, Techatticup gold mine, horseback riding, ATV tours, and Kayaking and rafting on the Colorado River. Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopter’s pricing is very competitive. But if you want to really bulk up on savings, it's strongly recommended that you order online via their safe and secure website. It's on the website where you can save up to 40 percent. #30#
