Papillon Helicopters Opens
In a ribbon cutting ceremony, March 23, 2009 marked another milestone
Most folks in their 70’s, who’ve been
for Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters. The 45 year old company opened
in business for over 45 years, would nor-
a new 30,000 sq. ft. facility at its Boulder City Airport location outside Las
mally be throttling back their big business
Vegas. The building includes corporate offices, a 24 hour call center, its
plans. Right? Normally, these senior pio-
own control tower, and a World Class passenger terminal complete with
neers of business would be looking for a
gift shop and snack bar. Hosted by the Halvorson Family, hundreds of
seasonal home in Florida and combing the
newspapers for early bird specials. Not so
people attended the celebration which included food, music, facility tours,
for the patriarch of Papillon Helicopters,
and local dignitaries.
Elling Halvorson.
