Founded in 2002 by André Bègue, pilot and entrepreneur, child of the Mafate circus originating from the small village of la Nouvelle, Mafate Helicopteres widely contributed to opening Mafate Circus for the population. Mathieu, André’s son, became head of the family business in 2010. The company owns an AS 350 B3 Airbus with 6 passenger seats. This machine, built in Marignane, France, offers a perfect visibility range for touristic overflights and charter on Réunion Island.
A new helicopter of the same category is scheduled for October 2017.
