The Philippines is a country that has been blessed with many tourist attractions that are at par with the best in the world, among them the Banaue Rice Terraces, Taal Volcano and many others. There is, however, a more exciting way to view these natural wonders – through a helicopter ride that allows tourists to fully appreciate the majesty, magnificence and beauty of a scenic spot – an exhilarating experience that aviation company PhilJets offers.
According to PhilJets Group business development manager Michiko Soriano, the company’s existing fleet of one AS350B2 and two H130 helicopters will be complemented by a new Robinson R44 with the new aircraft to provide “excellent reliability, responsive handling and flexibility – making it an ideal light helicopter for private, business and tourism applications.”
The company also recently successfully obtained its aircraft maintenance organization license which allows it to service aircraft directly in-house and provides a complete range of services that an aviation firm can offer. The license, which is issued and certified by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, gives the company authority to read – engage in and perform maintenance work and modification on commercially or privately operated aircraft.
According to managing director Thierry Tea, “this new license represents another step forward for PhilJets in its goal to develop a nose-to-tail approach to aviation services in the Philippines and for all its customers.”
PhilJets Group includes PhilJets Aero Services Inc. and PhilJets Aero Charter Corp., leaders in the Philippine aviation industry providing global services in the Philippines and within the Asia Pacific region. Its range of activities include general aviation services, aircraft management, aircraft sales, spare parts sales, maintenance services, technical support, manpower and outsourcing, representation, charter flights, helicopter tours and Aerial Work.
