Villa Tamaris


HeliRiviera operates out of Villa Tamaris at Cannes-Mandelieu airport.

We are your Mediterranean operations centre. 

This base 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.

H145 Simulator

The Helionix Avionics desktop simulator (Reiser GMBH) offers a unique opportunity for air crew to further understand their helicopter.
The HeliRiviera suite is programmed to the Airbus H145 Helicopter frequently embarked upon our heli-yacht client’s vessels. It provides a safe and cost efficient opportunity to investigate in depth the system and procedures associated with the helicopter.
The suite is available year round as an instructional tool and is offered with an instructor. Please call us for availability and rates. 

Hangarage and Maintenance

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.

We also offer longer-term storage options inside the hanger. As part of this service we can also provide helicopter maintenance, so the aircraft is safe and ready for use at the start of the next flight season.

Airport access badges can be arranged by our friendly staff. We will complete the necessary paperwork, giving you the access that you require to the tarmac.

Pilot Support & Offices

Our base is a home from home.

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.

Dedicated office space is available for crew support, comprising of a comfortable lounge environment equipped with a computer, internet, printer, fax and telephone service. Find out more at our partner company’s website:
