HelicopterDuring its 50th Anniversary Celebration, Papillon Group will debut the new Golden Helicopter, which will arrive at Papillon's Boulder City Aerocenter via a five-helicopter formation (representing five decades of operation as the world's largest and longest-running helicopter tour company). These helicopters will be flying three generations of the Halvorson family, including Elling Halvorson, chairman and founder, Papillon Group, to the ceremony. Once the helicopters have landed, members of the Hualapai tribe will officially bless the “Copter 50” Golden Helicopter. 

The single-engine helicopter equipped with the latest navigation and safety technology and a spacious modular cabin that can accommodate one pilot plus up to seven passengers. It is the quietest helicopter on the market.

Starting April 23, the Golden Helicopter will enter into Papillon's regular tour rotation and will be utilized throughout 2015.
