Starspeed Introduces the S-92


Starspeed, April 02, 2015 - Starspeed hosted its first Open Day last week to show off its latest arrival, the S-92.

Guests were treated to a flight along the Thames in the 16-seater helicopter. Director, Simon Mitchell, welcomed the guests to Starspeed's base at Fairoaks Airport in Chobham, Surrey.

"We wanted to introduce you all to the S-92, which is a unique helicopter in that it can take 16 guests at one time and their luggage," he explained.

"It provides a great opportunity for corporate entertainment or private groups and, in most cases, will be more cost-effective than taking two helicopters. It is also the only S-92 available for VIP charter in Europe."

Simon introduced Starspeed Chairman, Ian Field, who talked about Starspeed's training division, which is going from strength to strength. With three helicopters available to the training school and access to simulator activities, it offers specialist conversion training, Instrument Rating and other tailored courses for qualified pilots looking to extend their skills. Guests had the opportunity to meet Director, Gary Butcher, Operations Manager, Sarah French, and special guest, Starspeed founder, David Voy.

They could also inspect two of the six EC155s in the fleet, and the Bell 429 which were on display throughout the day.

The S-92 made two flights during the day and over 30 guests had the opportunity to admire London from the sky. "It was a very successful day," said Simon Mitchell. "We had very positive comments from all of our guests and we look forward to many more charters for the S-92."

Starspeed Ltd is the largest helicopter management, charter and training company in Europe. It presently operates 15 aircraft and is one of the oldest privately owned firms within the onshore market.
