  • Heli Air AS350 in fatal crash off French coast

    News | 15 Jun 2004 00:00

    <p>A single-engined Eurocopter AS350 owned by scheduled operator Héli Air Monaco crashed into the Mediterranean sea on 8 June, 2.16km (1.2nm) off Cape Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat in the south of France, killing the pilot and four passengers. The accident, one of the worst fatal helicopter crashes in France during the last decade, happened in fine weather while the aircraft was en route from Nice Côte d'Azur airport to Monaco. Jacques Crogetto, president of Héli Air, says the company conducts 50 round-trip flights a day from Nice and carries up to 100,000 passengers a year. He adds that the company will launch an internal inquiry in addition to the investigation opened by the French maritime authorities. On 15 December 1999 five people were killed when an AS355 struck a cable on approach to the Pic de Bure observatory, Provence. On 29 November 2000 an AS350 hit high ground in bad weather in New Caledonia, killing all seven on board.</p>http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Heli-Air-AS350-in-fatal-crash-off-French-coast-182938/
  • Cannes faces heliport closure

    News | 23 Sep 2003 00:00

    <p>JUSTIN WASTNAGE / NICE</p> <p>The French town of Cannes faces the closure of one of its licensed heliports in March next year if local authorities do not reach a decision on an alternate site. Cannes Mandelieu airport, largely used by business aircraft, is completing an upgrade to its runways that has been coupled with an agreement to reduce traffic.</p> <p>A large part of the airport's 115Ha (284 acre) area is protected by environmental impact agreements, and residents' groups are threatening to block permission to move the existing helipad when the runways are upgraded to include a stop-pad north of the main runway, to avoid fixed-wing aircraft approaching over the densely populated valleys nearby. The airport handles 10,000 helicopter movements a year. Ren&eacute; Koehl, airlines representative manager at Nice C&ocirc;te d'Azur airport, says the heliport is a vital link for business and leisure travellers. </p> <p>Helicopter operators along the C&ocirc;te d'Azur, Europe's mosthttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Cannes-faces-heliport-closure-172018/

    Orlando Sanford Airport has begun expanding its terminal building. The $25 million expansion will add a two-storey terminal facility of more than 11,150m² (120,000ft²) and will increase the airport's annual capacity by 3 million passengers when completed by February next year. Nice Cote d'Azur Airport is to spend almost Fr1 billion ($167 million) on improvements to increase capacity to 12 million passengers a year. A new, 37,000m² terminal, able to accommodate 4 million passengers, will be completed by spring 2003. The parking area will also be increased and a new zone created for aircraft with fewer than 50 seats. The airport handled 8.7 million passengers last year, a rise of 7.1%, making it the second busiest airport behind Paris Charles de Gaulle. Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok Airport has completed its terminal development plan with the opening of the north west concourse. This adds 11 more airbridges, bringing the total to 48, and boosts annual capacity to 45 million passengers. Trafhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Airports-61390/
