Everyone in compliance with the following rules :

  • Babies : Children under 2 years of age do not have a seat and sit on the lap of a parent, equipped with a seat belt.
  • Kids : Children between 2 and 12 years of age may not be seated in the front of the helicopter or in the sliding door seat. Children in this age group must be accompanied by at least one adult in the rear seats.
  • Pregnant women : The potential risks arising from vibrations during helicopter flights justify the refusal to transport pregnant women, unless a medical certificate to this effect is produced. The company declines responsibility if a pregnant woman does not declare her condition before boarding.
  • Scuba Dives : When you dive with a tank, the air under pressure forms small bubbles of inert gas in your body that will disappear with time. These small bubbles disappear naturally and gradually without damaging you. Also, in order to avoid a decompression accident, passengers who have made a scuba dive within 24 hours prior to the flight may not take on board.
