Falcon Aviation adds three Leonardo AW169s to helicopter fleet

Falcon Aviation has ordered three additional new Leonardo AW169 helicopters, in readiness for a significant new offshore contract from early 2018. The new aircraft will increase the fleet of the type to five.

Falcon Aviation has successfully logged 500 incident-free hours with the popular multi-role Class I Performance medium category helicopter, flying private charters and in fulfilling offshore contract with oil company TOTAL.

The company has quickly grown to become fleet leader in the offshore fraternity worldwide, flying 100 hours in the past month, reflecting an overall increase in helicopter flying following the launch of the Falcon Aviation managed heliport at Dubai DWC Airport this May.

Vice chairman and CEO of Falcon Aviation, His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan said: “I am pleased to say that we have enjoyed an exceptional year in 2017 and I pay tribute to the team for their hard work and dedication. I foresee that 2018 will be an even stronger year with the expansion of activity in Dubai and, in particular, expansion into new territories we look forward to confirming in due course.”
