Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters
As the only helicopter company with certification to fly both the South and West Rim of the Grand Canyon, Papillon offers not one, not two, but three exclusive landings sites at the bottom of the Canyon.

In addition to regular Grand Canyon helicopter tours, Papillon also offers combination packages of airplane and helicopter tour, and sometimes even a boat ride thrown in.
