The Stockholm company EastAir has resumed its helicopter operations after a major reconstruction that included the replacement of several key positions in the management group. Seth Olofsson, a former CAA inspector and a widely experienced helicopter pilot, has been appointed new flight operations manager. Sören Fagerberg, experienced in the heavy airline industry, is the new quality manager and Martin Johansson, with a long background in corporate business aviation, is the new crew-training manager.
Lars Österwal, CEO of EastAir, says that the company is expanding with three airplanes as well, and that the management group looks forward to combining the operation with quick and professional helicopter services in the Swedish capital.
EastAir is a joint fixed-wing and helicopter company with its headquarters and main base at Bromma Airport. The company’s helicopter division is focused in charter operations, sightseeing tours, photographic flights and pilot training. Its airplane division, which was established back in 1991, offers corporate fixed-wing services and international intensive care transports. The helicopter division’s air operator certificate was reissued by the Swedish Transport Agency on 15 November, after a two-month hold for the renewal process.
