H145, the first twin-engine helicopter of PhilJets

H145, the first twin-engine helicopter of PhilJets

Towards the end of last year, PhilJets’ fleet welcomed a new addition – an aircraft that opens a lot of new possibilities because of its innate versatility. On December 14, 2017, PhilJets’ new Airbus H145 arrived in the company’s hangar at the Manila Domestic Airport. The event was graced by representatives from PhilJets and aircraft manufacturer Airbus Helicopters. The arrival of the H145 is a highly anticipated milestone for PhilJets because it is the company’s second twin-engine helicopter. Twin-engine helicopters offer a big step up over single-engines because they are more reliable and safer. Furthermore, the H145’s addition to the fleet heralds a time of excitement for the company because the aircraft gives PhilJets the option to carry out new services for their charter like law enforcement operations, crew transport to oil and gas plants and power lines inspection, among others. Introducing the H145     Being the latest member of Airbus’4-tonne-class twin-engine helicopter, the H145 is a state-of-the-art rotorcraft boosted with improved functionalities compared to its predecessors from the EC145 family1. Measuring 11.69 meters from nose to tail with a height of 4 meters, the H145 sports a noticeably large cabin with a cutting-edge avionics suite which incorporates three large displays and a four-axis autopilot in the cockpit.2 As mentioned in the marketing infographic for the unit, the H145 has a cruise speed of 248 km/hr and can carry a useful load of 1,731 kilograms. Not only is this helicopter powerful, it also has a stylish appearance and a comfortable cabin with air-conditioning system. Single-Engine vs. Twin-Engine     So what makes twin-engines better? In essence, twin-engines are...
PhilJets’ Year 2017 in review

PhilJets’ Year 2017 in review

For PhilJets, 2017 was a year marked by bustling growth – propelling the company from being a daring up-and-comer to a trusted name in the aviation industry. The entry of a new year is often regarded as a mark of a fresh start. But it is also an opportunity to look back at the accomplishments and milestones that were reached in the year that just ended. Marking its fourth year since it was founded in 2013, PhilJets made a number of noteworthy moves in 2017 in order to solidify their bid to become the leading aerospace company in the Philippines, including hiring highly-qualified staff members, launching new services and acquiring new units to join their fast-expanding fleet.     PhilJets started 2017 on a very bright note – taking control of a Cessna Citation XLS+ in January. The said acquisition not only reinforced the PhilJets fleet, it also heralded the company’s entry to the business jet segment of the aviation industry. Another business jet, in the form of a Bombardier Challenger 350, was added to the fleet the following month. Being the best-selling business jet platform of the last decade1, the Challenger 350 aircraft has a proven reputation for excellence worldwide. Given that PhilJets operates both business jets and helicopters, the company also made sure that their helicopter fleet was reinforced. In May of last year, a Bell 407 GX was added to PhilJets’ aircraft line-up. The Bell 407 GX is a versatile multi-role aircraft that can be used for medical emergency transport, touristic sightseeing, charter services, aerial photography and corporate transport, among others.2 As the saying goes, it...
Buying a jet: a profitable investment

Buying a jet: a profitable investment

Who says no to an investment that gives luxury, comfort and profit all at the same time?                   Owning private jets and helicopters have long been regarded by many as a venture solely for luxury – for good reason. The expenses that will be incurred are not limited to the purchase of the jets or helicopters themselves but also for hangar rentals, maintenance facilities and the hiring of qualified pilots, mechanics and other members of the aircraft crew. From the expenses side of the ledger, buying private jets or helicopters may seem like a dead investment at first glance; especially that jets or helicopters are seldom used if the owner is an individual. However, private aircrafts carry a money-making potential that can be unlocked, provided that the purchase of jets and helicopters are made in-sync with the needs and demands of the people who will use them. For full utilization of benefits, it makes more sense financially for aircrafts to cater to the needs of a large company rather than just an individual. This way, the aircrafts will be used more often, as companies tend to have various uses for quick and uninterrupted travel. Additionally, when aircrafts are allotted for company use, it is almost guaranteed that every time the aircraft flies, it is for a purpose that will generate income so the cost of travel can be offset by the financial gains that will result from it. In the Philippine setting, travel by air is becoming a more appealing option as places like Metro Manila, where centers of business are primarily concentrated, become more and more congested for...

Road Closure on Holidays? Air Charter is Here!

If the roads are blocked, how would you reach your destination? Got consecutive meetings at locations far away from each other? Afraid to miss your flight? It’s a good thing that you have an option other than taking the road. Try air charter services! Today in the Philippines, Manila is celebrating the Feast of the Black Nazarene. Many devotees visit Quiapo, Manila yearly for the Translacion, the procession of the holy image. As millions of people visit Manila to join the celebration, some roads are usually blocked for few hours, even for the whole day. Road closure in Manila is not uncommon anymore. In the recent years, Manila has been hosting events and summits such as ASEAN and APEC. We can also recall the Papal Visit of Pope Francis back in 2015. Manila has also been improving its public highways and roadworks, making road blocks even worse. Now that air charter services are becoming more accessible to everyone, why not fly from one point of Manila to another? Don’t let the road blocking hinder you from accomplishing the things that have to be done. If you have a series of meetings and don’t want to be slowed down by the road closure, you may book air transfer if road blocks are to be expected. Aviation companies, like PhilJets, can arrange your flights according to your needs. You might as well should have considered booking a heli ride to avoid arriving late at your destination should you be taking a road that is affected by the rerouting today due to Black Nazarene Feast. Not only it’s convenient, but you can...
