ExecuJet Europe is scheduled to receive a global helicopter Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) from the UK Civil Aviation Authority in December 2013, which it will use to offer helicopter charter from its base in Cambridge.

The company’s managed fleet already includes two Eurocopter EC155 helicopters based at Cambridge Airport, with an additional two contracts in the final stages of negotiation.

John Brutnell, operations director of ExecuJet Europe, said: “There has been great demand from our existing fixed-wing customers to include helicopter operations in our service offering. In addition to the benefits of our expanded charter services, our managed helicopter customers will now be able to enjoy the advantages of ExecuJet’s buying power for items such as fuel and insurance, which can significantly decrease operational costs.”

“We look forward to expanding our helicopter fleet and providing the same excellent aircraft management services our fixed-wing customers currently enjoy,” Britnell added.
