Acquisition Heli-West AG
03.04.2018 - Mountain Flyers 80 Ltd. takes over Heli-West AG based at Grenchen Airport.
We are pleased to be able to expand our range of services and strengthen our presence in the Swiss Mittelland. Grenchen Airport offers an ideal infrastructure for sightseeing flights and especially for pilot training.
With the base of Heli-West, Mountainflyers also take over the Airbus Helicopters EC120 B HB-ZGQ. The five-seater turbine helicopter fits well into our fleet, which consists of helicopter types from Robinson and Airbus Helicopters for single engine helicopters. The EC120 joins the larger Airbus models AS350 and H125.
Soon a Robinson R22 Beta II will be added to the Heli-West base at Grenchen Airport. The helicopter is used for trial flights and pilot training.
The former Heli-West employees in administration and flight - Seline Arbenz and Rolf Frutschi - will continue to work for Heli-West.
The base of Heli-West AG was completely renewed in 2010. This includes three hangar spaces and offices on two floors including briefing rooms and a theory room.
From now on, the organisation of flight operations in Grenchen will mainly be handled by the Mountainflyers office at Berne Airport. The sightseeing flights offered by Heli-West AG can be found on the Mountainflyers website. The e-mail address the telephone number 032 652 75 18 of Heli-West remain in operation.
