British operator Heli Air has added an Airbus AS355F1 Twin Squirrel to their charter fleet, a 1983 aircraft carrying registration G-PIPB. This is the first twin engined helicopter the company has flown on their Air Operations Certificate in a fleet now 40 strong across eight bases in England and Scotland. The charter fleet also includes Robinson R22, R44 and R66 along with Bell JetRangers and Airbus EC130, according to Sales and Marketing Director Brian Kane.
Heli Air purchased the aircraft in October 2014 and it has done through an extensive refurbishment program including two new engines and a new interior. It completed its first charter on Wednesday 17th to a well-known US-owned television network.
