Unique flying school on the French Riviera

Training on turbine helicopter

Let’s Fly will allow you to share your passion for the helicopter from its Cannes base. Thanks to our instructors, you will be able to prepare your private pilot or professional pilot helicopter license, obtain, revalidate or renew a type rating. We also offer the night rating.

All these flights are carried out either on the AS350 Squirrel or on the mythical Bell 206 helicopter. This one is a 420-horsepower turbine helicopter that runs on kerosene as an airplane. It is more powerful than a helicopter with a piston engine. The Bell 206 helicopter flies at an average speed of 200 km/h and has a 3-hour autonomy.
