Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters recently announced the launch of its brand-new Hoover Dam-area tours, as well as the opening of the company’s seventh heliport located next to the Hoover Dam Lodge Hotel & Casino.

To mark this momentous occasion and celebrate the expansion of the company and its offerings, on Sept. 8, Papillon will welcome an international delegation of more than 100 tourism-industry VIPs and media. With nearly 80 percent of its customer base being international visitors, Papillon invited the delegation to be the first to celebrate this milestone.

The celebration at Papillon’s Aerocenter will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the terminal that will mark the launch of the new Hoover Dam tours. Representatives from the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce will also be in attendance.

Following the ribbon-cutting, the international delegation will depart on helicopter tours to experience the new Hoover Dam tours. With these tours, Papillon makes it easier than ever for guests to have an unforgettable “flightseeing” experience of the world-famous Hoover Dam at an exceptional value.

With the new heliport, Papillon now flies guests closer to the dam than any other tour operator and offers breathtaking views of not only the dam, but also Lake Mead and the rugged, volcanic terrain of Black Canyon. Click here for descriptions of the new tours.

Flights can be booked the same day either by making the reservation in person at the Hoover Dam heliport or online at Flights begin as early as 9 a.m. and continue until sunset.
