From Tahiti presse:

Helicopter service resumes in Bora Bora

(Tahitipresse) - Helicopter service will start again in Bora Bora, Leeward Islands. This will allow visitors to see the lagoon from the sky during the high season in July and August.

Polynesia Helicopteres had stopped flying in Bora Bora for the last three months.

The company is now willing to operate again one helicopter in this island known for its precious and colorful lagoon.

Fligths could resume as early as June 16, a French Polynesia government press release states.

Polynesia Helicopteres has hired four persons, two pilots, a mechanician and a sales agent.

Flying over Bora Bora has always been very much appreciated by visitors in the past, the press release adds.

The Polynesia Helicopteres website states that the company can offer a "very special tour of Bora Bora combined with a unique flight to Tupai, a hidden treasure of Polynesia", which last 30 minutes.

The Helicopter could also be used for medical emergencies, flying from instance from Bora Bora to the Leeward Islands hospital on the island of Raiatea.

Yes it's great!

Oh! If I would have the chance to try that too!

What should I do? Cross my fingers, or what?

(The most important things I /will/ have! Time and money... /and maybe courage, too.../ But the chance and the force... though I hope...)
