Chamonix Mont-Blanc Helicoptères
Established in 1992, our small company, based at the foot of the Argentière glacier, at the top of Chamonix valley is in the heart of Mont-Blanc. In this it is unique!
Because we do not fly with impunity in the high mountains, even more, work can not be improvised. This environment, often hostile, demanding foremost know-how, but also and more importantly, a great, great humility. For all the challenges that we would throw, nature is always winning.
It is our commitment to the mountain, to the Mont Blanc and the Chamonix valley from which we are, which forge our values :
Availability, Responsiveness, Efficiency, Professionalism.
With all this human dimension that characterizes the mindset of "artisan-entrepreneur" who has always drives us.
The helicopter serves ecology:
For several decades now the helicopter is part of the mountain landscape. Better than that, it is now an essential tool for the mountain economy. Where it would slash the sides of the valleys of forest tracks, with a few trips / returns, the helicopter carries persons, materials, food, etc. then disappears without a trace. Better still, it helps to maintain the clean condition of the mountain, by removing garbage and septic shelters, or by removing obsolete facilities, real black dots to the landscape.
In addition, what once said Antoine de Saint-Exupery, "we borrow the earth from our children", we focus particularly in respect of our environment, trying to minimize the nuisance helicopter brings.
