British manufacturer Dyson has added a second AgustaWestland AW139 to its corporate fleet. HeliHub.com understands this will replace their Dauphin G-DOLF and joins their first AW139 G-OAWL. The new aircraft carries registration G-DCOI which reflects the original vacuum cleaner which Dyson produced – the DC-01 – which launched the success of the company after James Dyson put many years into other inventions which never proved financially lucrative – including Rotork boats and the “Ball Barrow”, a wheelbarrow using a ball to replace the wheel.

The overall success of the company vacuum cleaners provided research and development funds for various other revolutionary items such as the bladeless air fans, hand dryers, washing machines and so on.

Dyson’s aircraft are registered in the name of “Profred Partners LLP” and include a Global Express business jet. There is insufficient data on the UK CAA website to determine how much the company’s first AW139 flies, but the Dauphin covers approximately 200 hours per year.  The new AW139 is serial 31475
