Singapore Airshow 2018: PhilJets orders new H130
PhilJets has placed an order with Airbus Helicopters for its eighth H130 helicopter.
The new H130 will be deployed for charter heli-tours and VIP transport services.
PhilJets took delivery of its first H145 and its seventh H130 helicopters in January 2018. With these new additions, the company marked its entry into the twin-engine helicopters market and is looking to expand in this segment.
With the addition of the new H130, PhilJets will have a fleet of 11 helicopters and three business jets under its operations. The company aims to add three more aircraft within the year. The company is eyeing more capabilities in the light engine segments for its next additions to the fleet, focusing more on acquiring twin-engine aircraft in the next three years.
