  • 2,900 French police in search for convict after daring helicopter escape

The courtyard that they landed the helicopter in is the only one in Réau that doesn't have helicopter nets on it. Helicopter escapes from prisons in France were relatively common up until the late 2000s.

Belloubet said police had launched a manhunt and described Faid as unsafe.

This is not Faid's first escape from a prison, either. In 2013, he literally blasted his way out of a prison situated in northern France using dynamite.

That time, he was recaptured six weeks later, and last year received a 10-year sentence for the escape.

The 46-year-old had been serving a 25-year sentence for a 2010 armed robbery in which a police officer was killed.

His fame has increased since then following appearances in several television shows and authoring books recounting his past and rise as a criminal in Paris' tough suburbs.

French media reported that the three men took the pilot hostage at a flying club in the Paris region.

The French government pointed to possible security failings on Monday after a notorious gangster used a helicopter to stage his second brazen jailbreak of a crime career inspired by films such as "Scarface".

The two accomplices hijacked the helicopter on Sunday by posing as aspiring students at a flight school, ordering a terrified instructor to pick up a third accomplice before continuing on to the prison.

Three armed and well-trained men then reportedly presented themselves and demanded Faid's release.

Manhunt underway in France after convicted cop-killer Redoine Faid broke free from a jail south of Paris. Faid and his accomplices are believed to have ditched the airplane and escaped by vehicle.

It said "an armed commando landed in a helicopter in the courtyard as the prisoner was in the visiting room" of the facility.

The crime took place when Faid's brother was visiting him.

The escape was over in minutes, with no injuries and no hostages taken, according to the Justice Ministry.

He spent years as an worldwide fugitive before his capture, and then a decade in prison, and then wrote an autobiography after his release on parole in 2009. Faid and the hijackers also allegedly torched two getaway cars which were found after the escape.

A hotel employee told AFP at the time that Faid had been in the hotel for a few days and had paid for the room using cash.
