SKYPRO HELIKOPTERS LLC, part of the companies operating under the single SKYPRO brand, has expanded its Leonardo AW139 helicopter fleet to four aircraft. Thus, the company becomes the largest private operator of Leonardo AW139 helicopters in Russia. The new helicopter was made in Italy, has a cabin configuration of 8 seats and will soon begin flying in the interests of the owner. This aircraft replenished the existing fleet of SKYPRO HELIKOPTERS, consisting of two AW139 Russian assembly and another helicopter made in Italy.
According to the company, Leonardo AW139 is a modern twin-engine multi-purpose helicopter that fully complies with high standards of style and comfort. The helicopter has been manufactured by the Italian company Leonardo Helicopters since 2004. This helicopter is equipped with the most spacious cabin and luggage compartment in its class, and the ultra-low level of vibration and noise create the highest standard of comfort. The aircraft is equipped with the latest flight and navigation system, shock-absorbing landing gear, fuselage and seats, and it is the only helicopter in its class with a complete FIPS system, which makes it possible to safely use this helicopter in difficult weather conditions. AW139 VIP is the most sought after helicopter in the corporate transportation segment.
Recall that last year the SKIPRO HELICOPTERS technical center received the official status of an authorized center for the maintenance of helicopters AgustaWestland A109S, A109E, AW109SP. This spring, the company expanded its AW119 helicopter service access, and the airline staff was replenished with highly qualified specialists trained at Leonardo Academies in Italy and the United States.
Also, SKIPRO HELICOPTERS together with the Russian Pilatus sales center – Nesterov Aviation – is actively working on the development of an authorized Pilatus Aircraft Limited aircraft service center. Within the framework of this project, a certificate was obtained for the operational and periodic maintenance of Pilatus PC-12 aircraft, a full range of necessary equipment was purchased, its own service for decoding and processing flight information for aircraft was certified, and an authorization certificate was received from the manufacturer. Several large forms of maintenance were carried out on the aircraft of Russian customers at the main base at the Dobrograd airport, and work is currently underway to prepare the company for certification for servicing the new flagship Pilatus PC-24.
