Executive HeliShares takes another AW109

AgustaWestland GrandNewAgustaWestland has announced
that Executive HeliShares, a Briles and Wing Company selected the AW109 Power
and GrandNew product lines as the VIP platforms of choice for their fractional
ownership programme on the West Coast of the United States.

Briles Executive
Helishares currently operates two AW109 Powers and one Grand in Southern
California with an additional Grand “Network Helicopter” located in the Bay
Area. The fifth aircraft, a factory new AW109 Power, will be delivered in late
2012 thereby expanding the largest fleet of corporate VIP AW109 Powers in the
United States.

Briles Executive
Helishares fractional program offers 1/3 ownership shares with professional
management, truly a turnkey helicopter transportation solution. Now it is
possible to own a state of the art twin-engine cabin class VIP AgustaWestland
for less than the price of a new single with comparable operating costs and all
the financial benefits of full ownership. The Helishares program features
reasonable monthly management fees, generous yearly flight time allocations,
and scheduling flexibility taking advantage of the existing fleet and company
infrastructure.

Robert Brant, vice
president sales and marketing, US & Canada, AgustaWestland said “It
gives us great pleasure to add Briles Executive Helishares to the extensive
list of operators who have chosen products from our range of light twins for
corporate transport duties in America. The unrivalled levels of performance,
comfort, safety and low operating costs the AW109 Power delivers makes it the
ideal helicopter for the Executive HeliShares customer.”
