Our facilities include everything a pilot may require, from flight planning tools to wifi access, meeting rooms, a shower and kitchen. Even more importantly, our staff and other visiting pilots provide a huge local knowledge base for those new to the region.
Cannes Mandelieu airport is ideal for yacht embarked helicopters in the region. Some yachts use our facilities as an advance logistics center if the vessel is coming to the Mediterranean from, say, the Caribbean. Many owners use our services when the yacht is alongside in Monaco or IYCA Antibes and the aircraft is prohibited from using the helideck.
Our base is a home from home. Some pilots find it a challenging operating in a country that does not speak their native language. Our operations staff speak many languages to help you get organized. Sometimes it’s the small things that just make life easier!
The Heli Riviera villa is in a secluded corner of Cannes Mandelieu airport. Our gated hangarage area is literally one minute’s walk from the villa. Pilots can leave their aircraft on the tarmac outside the hangar for when they are actively engaged in yacht or villa support.
