ExecuJet Europe, the leading global business aviation organisation, is adding the first helicopter to its managed fleet, the Eurocopter EC155, based at Cambridge Airport.
The EC155 helicopter has capacity for eight VIP passengers and two pilots. With a range of more than 500 miles, the aircraft will primarily be used for transfers to the City and surrounding airports, but has already operated transfers to Paris and Brussels.
John Brutnell, Operations Director of ExecuJet Europe, says: “We are very pleased to be expanding our fleet and the inclusion of a helicopter at our London Cambridge FBO is a welcome addition to our managed aircraft. We are currently in discussions with other clients who wish to base helicopters here, so we hope to welcome more to Cambridge in the future.”
ExecuJet Europe has also employed a full-time helicopter pilot to head up the company’s London Cambridge FBO helicopter operations.
ExecuJet’s London Cambridge FBO, which opened in January 2012, provides a full range of services including FBO, charter, maintenance management and aircraft management. The state-of-the art FBO facility includes executive passenger lounges, boardroom facilities and dedicated crew facilities. Private airside vehicle access for executive cars facilitates easy access to business jets and helicopter charters.
