Posted 31 May 2017 · Add Comment

Sloane Helicopters announced new contracts last week at EBACE 2017, in Geneva, Switzerland, ordering an AgustaWestland GrandNew light twin helicopter, which will be delivered in 2018, with another VIP-configured GrandNew delivered by the distributor to a private customer next year.



Sloane will also hand over an AW169 light intermediate helicopter to a private operator later this year.

This will be the fifth VIP configured AW169 helicopter in the UK and Ireland markets and marks the latest cooperation between Leonardo and Sloane Helicopters and follows several deals in the last 12 months, including the sale of six new and second hand GrandNew and AW169 helicopters to various private customers and operators in UK and Ireland.

This successful partnership of more than 20 years has resulted in the sale through the official distributor of more than 70 new light single and light twin engine aircraft including the AW119, AB206, AW109 and Grand/GrandNew models. Customers also include the 32 (The Royal) Squadron of the UK’s Royal Air Force which has been using a GrandNew helicopter to deliver Command Support Air Transport (CSAT) capability for senior military commanders and Government Ministers in the UK and Europe.

Sloane Helicopters is also an Authorized Service Centre, providing maintenance and support services for the majority of GrandNew and all AW169 VIP helicopters in the region. Additionally, Sloane Helicopters is a Type Rating Training centre for Leonardo helicopters in the UK.
