Heli Asset has sold the first Eurocopter EC155B1 into Switzerland.

Zurich-based Heli-Link, sister company to Jet-Link and now subsidiary company of DC Aviation of Germany, took delivery of the 2008-build model, configured with eight VIP seats this week.

The aircraft is available for third party charter with immediate effect, joining an existing EC-120B in the fleet.

“We are delighted to be adding this new EC155B1 to our charter fleet,” commented Founding CEO Hanspeter Candrian.  “Heli Asset did a terrific job in facilitating the sale of the helicopter to us.”

The boutique company remains fully autonomous following the ownership change, but its recent co-operation with DC Aviation means that it can now offer widened charter services on aircraft with a European Operator’s Certificate to complement its long established Swiss AOC.

Heli Asset placed some 18 helicopters in 2012 and recently started publishing quarterly pre-owned market updates.
