Golden An­niver­sary

Where Las Vegas - - THE GUIDE ATTRACTIONS + TOURS -

The world’s long­est-run­ning he­li­copter tour com­pany, Papil­lon Group is cel­e­brat­ing 50 years in the in­dus­try with “Copter 50,” a golden Air­bus H130T2 he­li­copter. The com­pany was the vi­sion of Elling Halvor­son, a con­trac­tor charged with build­ing a 13.5-mile-long wa­ter pipeline from the North Rim to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, first in­tro­duced with he­li­copters as part of the pro­ject. Papil­lon then made history by be­ing the first he­li­copter tour op­er­a­tor to fly to the Grand Canyon; it prides it­self on be­ing one of the few com­pa­nies that fly both the South and West rims. Its state- of-the-art he­li­copters and air­planes were specif­i­cally de­signed to re­veal panoramic views. 702.736.7243
