Established in 1965, Papillon holds the title as the world’s oldest and largest sightseeing company. We fly an estimated 600,000 passengers each year on daily tours to the Grand Canyon and surrounding areas.
Our aircraft are specifically designed for sightseeing. Each is equipped with onboard upgrades developed by our own Papillon team to provide optimal sightseeing and comfort. Our goal is to deliver the best possible sightseeing experience to our guests, which is why all of our helicopters have been fitted with oversized windows, ideal for sightseeing and photography. Inflight, pre-recorded narration is also available in 16 languages and is delivered through noise-cancelling headphones.
Papillon is more than just an air tour company. We offer a number of other guided Grand Canyon adventures, including horseback, hiking, ATV and Jeep tours, and river rafting excursions.
