Heliswiss is celebrating one of its JetRangers passing 18,000 flight hours on 31st August.Â Delivered new in 1980 from the Agusta production line, and serialled 8606, this aircraft was flown in Austria as
OE-DXV until purchased by Heliswiss in March 1986.Â Later the same year they passed it to their Spanish associate Heliswiss Iberica for a year on local registration OE-EAN, and then from June 1987 it returned to the Swiss regiter as HB-XPQ.
The operator is looking forward to using this long-serving flagship in both training and charter roles.
