The two are Martin Rutty and Simon Lichtenstein, both highly experienced pilots and holders of four UK Championship titles and having competed as members of the British Helicopter Team in the world championships four times.
Their R22 helicopter came down shortly after they had taken off from Sospel, near Nice, France.
Reports suggest the helicopter had catatrophic mechanical failure. The crash happened with skies clear, but strong winds blowing.
Our condolences to friends and family of the two men.
