Faid was sprung from his prison in Reau, 50km southeast of Paris, on Sunday by two heavily armed accomplices who used smoke bombs and angle grinders to break through doors and whisk him to a waiting helicopter.
Redoine Faid, who had previously broken out of prison using dynamite, was freed by armed accomplices from a prison near Paris on Sunday.
Redoine Faid was serving a 25-year sentence for murder, following a botched armed robbery that left a policewoman dead in 2010.
Faid's brother, who was visiting him at the jail, has been taken into custody for questioning. He carried out that escape "with explosives hidden in tissue packs", according to The Associated Press, and was apprehended again just weeks later at a hotel. Faïd said he was inspired by American films such as Scarface and Heat. The 46-year-old is believed to have fled in a vehicle with the armed accomplices.
When the chopper arrived, Faid was meeting with his brother in the visiting room.
One inmate, Pascal Payet, used a helicopter for three separate prison escapes, according to the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.
This is the second time Faid has made a daring escape from prison.
A police manhunt has since been launched across the entire Paris region.

Media reports said the pilot had been released and was not injured.
Staying on the run will become increasingly expensive for Faid as he tries to avoid capture, but authorities said they have no clear sense of how much money the serial robber of banks and armored trucks had stashed away from his previous crimes. The most recent prison breakout comes a little over five years after Faid broke out of the Sequedin prison April 13, 2013.
"We must be careful not to leave the same people in the same places for too long when we're dealing with this type of individual", she said.
Edouard Phillipe, France's Prime Minister, said that 3,000 police officers are now on a manhunt to locate Faid, according to CNN.
French authorities believe the escape plan was well-planned and required several reconnaissance missions.
"It was an extremely well-prepared commando unit that may have used drones to survey the area beforehand", BBC quoted France's Justice Minister Nicole Belloubet as saying.
Investigators are also looking into whether Faid had help from inside the prison.
Faid grew up in the French capital's tough immigrant suburbs.
