Later this year Helicopter Seychelles will take delivery of their second Agusta 109C.
The new machine, to be based in their hangar at Providence on MahÃ© in SeychellesÂ will operate from the International Airport close by.
Helicopter Seychelles is a privately owned company with forward thinking management and purchased their first Agusta 109C 2 years ago, just before the onset of worldwideÂ recession; this machine helped the company through the lean times of 2009.
Captain Rick Dooley, Director of Operations says: â€œIts introduction gave Seychelles two new service products â€“
Seychelles is a high end tourist destination and clients came to appreciate the new services.Â The Agusta business, a five star, extended offshore service, conducted both day and night, is growing and the decision to go for a second machine was made on two fronts.
Approval was given earlier this year and the new Agusta will join its stable mates of 4 x Bell 206 BIIIs and the first Agusta 109C in July 2010.
