Caribbean helisurface permit application

AIRWAVE : HeliRiviera Blog 0 comments

With the MED season almost over, no doubt your thoughts are turning to preparation for the Caribbean season again.

The Caribbean helisurface permit is valid for 1 full year from the day it is received. The permit takes approximately 2 months to obtain from receipt for the requested documentation. By applying now it will avoid the last minute stress of waiting for the permit, while the boat is due to arrive in the Caribbean!!

The Mediterranean permit expires at the end of December, so if you would like to renew for 2013 it would be a good idea to get your application in at the same time as the Caribbean Permit.

Let us take care of all the administrative burden for you. Contact us now to receive the details on how to apply at permits@heliriviera.com

We look forward to hearing from you.

VIP location: A spot of lunch at the Polo Club in St Tropez

AIRWAVE : HeliRiviera Blog 0 comments

It’s the perfect scenario, what more can you ask for, a beautiful sunny day, arriving in style in a helicopter and just a stone’s throw away from an exquisite restaurant. We made the most of it yesterday on a day trip to St Tropez, landing in the Polo Club’s grounds just before lunch time, with just a few steps over the nicely mowed lawn we were lunching on a beautiful quiet terrasse in the warm spring sun overlooking the polo match pitch. The meal was exquisite, made from only the freshest Italian supplies, tagliatelle, ravioli and gnocchi being a few of their specialities and not forgetting the best Tiramisu in Saint Tropez.

Getting to St Tropez in summer is a nightmare by road. The only way to travel for your clients is by helicopter….it’s an easy and stressless experience, with just a short 25 minute flight from Nice.

Pilots…get in touch with us to receive details on this great location for your clients. A great landing spot to access St Tropez, and a restaurant right next door with very reasonable prices makes this the ideal spot to drop off your passengers and stand by.

The Polo club have a busy program for 2012 with matches for the International Polo Cup, so there will be plenty of opportunities to experience lunch in the Lounge Bar or dine in the Piano Bar while enjoying the calm of the countryside or the excitement of the game.

With plenty of vineyards in the surroundings, the French Riviera is the ideal location. The temperature drops just enough to want to get away from lying in the sun and visit what the region has to offer.

Fly direct to Château Sainte Roseline by helicopter, for a gourmet day.

Visit the Château Sainte Roseline vineyard and gardens with magnificent views of the rolling Provençal countryside. The detailed and informal guided tour of the wine cellar is not to be missed; culminating in the traditional “degustation” of the award-winning red, rosé and white wines. The wine tasting takes place in the cosy and authentic wine shop and is animated by the knowledgeable Château Sainte Roseline staff. End your afternoon by visiting the renowned cloister and chapel of Saint Roseline.

Should you require a venue for your business seminar, cocktail party or wedding reception Château Sainte Roseline could be just the place you are looking for with a choice of several rooms and open air spaces that can be adapted to your needs.

Contact our Operations Department to book your helicopter transfer.
