Agusta Westland AW109SP

Manufactured in Italy, the AW109SP is the fastest of its class with a maximum cruise speed of 289 kilometres per hour. A model preferred for its safety and efficiency by the British Royal Air Force, state of the art avionics allow a single pilot to fly up to six guests in any weather conditions.

Interiors on board the AW109SP are finished with leather seating as well as air conditioning and soundproofing features for optimum comfort. The 12.96 metre model has a range of 859 kilometres and an endurance of four and a half hours.

Bell 407 GXP

The 407GXP is a refined and updated version of the Bell 407 model, and measures 12.61 metres with a maximum take-off weight of 2,381 kilograms. Powered by a Rolls Royce engine, the 407GXP marginally departs from tried-and-tested tradition with the introduction of a four-bladed rotor for a smoother ride in the air.

The helicopter has a maximum cruise speed of 246 km per hour and can reach an altitude of 5,733 metres. It also has a range of 624km and a four-hour endurance capacity. Inside, the pilot and six guests can comfortably settle in to sound-proofed interiors finished in grey leather and stylish white piping and outfitted with Garmin electronics and navigation systems.
