SaxonAir enhances helicopter fleet with Airbus Helicopters EC155

Following the recent announcement of their rotary AOC, SaxonAir Helicopters offer the addition of the Airbus Helicopters EC155 to its fleet.  The EC155 will be exclusively marketed alongside SaxonAir’s existing range of helicopters and is operated in collaboration with DanCopter.

The EC155 B1 variant has excellent overall capabilities featuring a completely redesigned cabin providing 30% more passenger space than previous helicopter models and an endurance of over 1 hour 30 minutes flying time at the full passenger capacity. The EC155 will be offered in a corporate layout configuration with a capacity of 10 passengers and is operated multi-crew under full instrument flying conditions both day and night.

Max Randall, SaxonAir Helicopter Operations says, ‘We’re really looking forward to working with DanCopter on bringing this unique and versatile helicopter to the UK and European charter markets. The aircraft is fantastic at moving large amounts of people into private sites in a quick and comfortable manner, for example sporting events and music festivals.’

The aircraft will be based within SaxonAir’s headquarters at the Klyne Business Aviation Centre at Norwich Airport ideally placed to also facilitate the offshore and onshore East Anglian energy sector.

Operating out of Norwich the aircraft is a short flying time from London and an example flight time between London and Manchester is less than an hour door to door.
