PhilJets Group, a leading boutique aviation company that services the Asia Pacific region— specifically the Philippines—charges forward in its thrust to become the top leader in business aviation by introducing a new helicopter manufacturer to its fleet for 2017.
Though PhilJets has sustained constant dynamic growth these past three years, it strives to strengthen its position in business aviation. To complement its existing fleet of single engine helicopters: five Airbus H130 and one Airbus AS350B2 squirrel, PhilJets is delighted to welcome one Airbus H145 T2, its first twin-engine helicopter that will provide its customers with a bigger payload and capability. Moreover, as it can comfortably seat two pilots and eight passengers for long flights, it is very much adapted to the landscape of the 7,107 Philippine islands.
The latest member of the Airbus 4-ton-class twin-engine rotorcraft product range, Airbus H145 T2 is compact in size, boasts a small footprint and yet offers a cabin that can comfortably fit two pilots and eight passengers. The H145 T2 is the perfect aircraft to take passengers on longer rotary flights around the Philippine archipelago and features large windows with excellent visibility that both pilots and passengers will appreciate. As the quietest helicopter in its class, the H145 T2 can efficiently land in busy work sites, office zones and urban areas.
As PhilJets’ first twin-engine helicopter, the company will soon be able to strengthen additional segments such as Medevac and cargo. The delivery of the brand new H145 T2 is scheduled in fourth quarter 2017 and it will give PhilJets a total of eight Airbus Helicopters—the group has two H130T2 on order scheduled for delivery in second and third quarter– making it one of the largest Airbus Helicopters operators in the Philippines in 2017.
“It has always been one of our objectives to add a twin engine helicopter into our fleet in order to address the requirements of our customers. Indeed, as we grow, our clients also evolve towards more safety, more comfort and increased capabilities. PhilJets has been stepping up regularly in terms of service and experience. Our teams are doing a great job at keeping customer satisfaction high,” reveals Thierry Tea, Chairman & CEO of PhilJets. “It is not easy to meet all the expectations from the market, but we ought to aim at surpassing the standards,” adds Geoffroy Cahen, Head of Sales & Marketing.
The addition of the Bell 407 together with the new Airbus H145 T2 to its fleet will give PhilJets Group a total of nine Helicopters and two Business Jets in 2017. With these multi-purpose aircrafts and their capabilities, PhilJets aims to provide its customers with incomparable experiences for both of its local and international clientele.
