AW109 VH XUM prepares for first flight following fitment of floats

Our AW109, registration VH-XUM is now fitted with floats for our offshore operations conducting HMPT (Helicopter Marine Pilot Transfers).

Gary Hunter, General Manager for Flyon commented,

” Since commencement of our operations in December 2016 we took the decision to only operate twin engine aircraft 24/7. In addition we have now moved to fit floats to our 2 primary AW109’s. Our 2nd AW109, VH ZCF will also shortly undergo a major refurbishment and inspection at Agusta Leonardo’s facility¬†in Melbourne. Upon return we will have 2 float fitted aircraft dedicated to our operations in Hydrographers Passage”

“Well done to Shannon, Danny, Connor and Michael from our Engineering team who all did a fantastic job!”
