Mead, Ariz. • The pilot who died in a helicopter accident at the Grand Canyon in northwestern Arizona on Sunday worked for a popular tour company.
The pilot, who has not been identified, was killed after the 2014 Eurocopter AS350 rolled over onto its side while the pilot was moving it. There were no passengers on board.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with our colleague's family and loved ones," Brenda Halvorson, president and CEO of Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters, said in a statement. "This is a difficult time for our Papillon family. We are fully cooperating with the NTSB investigation."
