We are honored to welcome our newest dealer, Stéphane Luchini, to the Safari Helicopter Family. Stephane is located in Pau, France and will be servicing France and the surrounding area. Stephane has been flying since he was 15 years old. He first caught the aviation bug by learning to fly a glider, then moved on to skydiving, para-gliding, and piloting a fixed wing airplane. He has enjoyed base-jumping and has flown a wing-suit on Baffin Island from one of the higher cliffs in the world.
In 1998 Stéphane joined the French Army as a helicopter pilot. From 2008 to 2011 he flew as free-lance pilot in Antarctica, and the French mountains for long line and construction work. Since 2011 he has been flying for Airtelis Company as EC 225 pilot and AS 350 B3 for long line missions. Stéphane spends his free time flying his Safari or his Cozy, which he flew from France to the west coast of Greenland!
