Our team of experienced professionals carries out these missions with the appropriate technical expertise. We carry out a wide range of diverse tasks, including: resupplying refuges, civil engineering surveys, positioning pylons, installing structures and dropping parachutists.

Frost control

Mont Blanc Hélicoptère Lyon has been working for several years with prestigious wine-producing estates to combat the effects of late frosts.

Our fleet is capable of mobilising dozens of aircraft, and we can respond urgently to our customers’ requests based on weather forecasts.

These operations are carried out at daybreak with take-offs possible 30 minutes before the legal sunrise time (the regulation prohibiting low-flying at night).

The helicopter flies at low altitude and low speed in search of the inversion layer located about twenty metres above the ground.

The action of the blades displaces this warmer air, bringing it back to the ground, thus raising the temperature of the air above the vineyard. The gain per pass can reach 2° C to 3 °C depending on the day’s weather conditions and the temperature gradient over the plot.

Aerial surveillance

Our helicopters are particularly well suited for aerial surveillance. Whether you need to monitor forest fires, provide road traffic information, monitor gas pipelines or protect industrial sites, we always have a crew at your disposal.
