Starspeed signs for second AW169 helicopter
UK company Starspeed Limited has signed a contarct for a second AgustaWestland AW169 helicopter.
The helicopter will be used to perform VIP transport missions in the United Kingdom.
David Voy, Starspeed chairman, said “Following on from the order placed last November, Starspeed Ltd is delighted to announce that its own early faith in the potential of the AW169 has been further endorsed, with a confirmation of the order for a second airframe.”
Voy continued “Corporate customers first and foremost look for speed and supreme levels of comfort; they need operations to be available at short notice, potentially anywhere in the world with a minimum of additional support; they demand the highest standards of safety and reliability, meeting all requirements for commercial air transport as an absolute minimum; they expect justifiable purchase costs and good residual value; and they prefer long intervals between scheduled maintenance, with predictable and planned costs. The AW169 is just the product to meet these demands.”
