The French Ministry of Transport has launched a study to establish several helipads or heliports in the Paris area within two years.

In a move to end the longstanding dispute between helicopter operators and residents around the exclusive sea resort of Saint-Tropez in southeast France, local authorities have issued new rules. Ten spots in Saint-Tropez and neighboring Ramatuelle and Gassin are allowed for helicopter landings and takeoffs. Hours of operations are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Daily aircraft movements are limited to 10 or 20, depending on the city.

Despite an agreement signed in 2006 to mitigate noise around the famous French Riviera city of Saint-Tropez, helicopter operators and local authorities are still at odds about decibels in the popular vacation locale. The acrimony stems from the fact that none of the affected parties seemed to keep its promises last summer.
