ExecuJet Africa is celebrating its prestigious status as operator of the first ever jet to land at St Helena Airport (HLE) in the South Atlantic Ocean.
ExecuJet Africa is announcing the arrival of its first charter helicopter, a VIP configured Bell 407 helicopter, available for charter from today, 12 December 2016, from ExecuJet’s Cape Town FBO facility.
ExecuJet will offer commercial helicopter charters for various scenic flights to surrounding vineyards and other tourist attractions. While ExecuJet’s focus for helicopters charters will predominantly be the tourist market in the region, the company will also make the helicopter charters available to its existing clients for their business and leisure requirements.
Gavin Kiggen, Director of Flight Operations, ExecuJet Africa, says: “There is always a great demand for helicopters in the Cape Town region during the high-season, so we are really pleased to be able to offer this service to our customers. ExecuJet Africa is always looking for new opportunities to expand our charter offering in the region, and this new helicopter charter is an exciting step forward for the team.”
The Bell 407 integrates reliability, speed, performance and maneuvrability with a cabin configurable for an array of missions and payloads. Its Rolls Royce 250-C473 turbine FADEC engine delivers exceptional high performance with the ability to cruise at 140 knots.
