RotorMotion finds security in Castle
RotorMotion of Redhill aerodrome in the UK has completed its sale to Castle Air, having operated rotary wing executive charter for 16 years and flown clients including the Dalai Lama in that time.

RotorMotion of Redhill aerodrome in the UK has completed its sale to Castle Air, having operated rotary wing executive charter for 16 years and flown clients including the Dalai Lama in that time. The deal will see RotorMotion's fleet of Agusta 109s relocate to Castle Air's new Biggin Hill centre of operations to augment its existing A109 fleet.

Castle Air is based in Cornwall and the new base will expand its presence in the south east of the UK. RotorMotion's operations manager Sue Spencer and operations assistant Declan Lehane are included in the move. The development comes after a tumultuous year for founder and md of RotorMotion captain Philip Amadeus (pictured left), who says: “Following the accident at Vauxhall Cross in January which led to the death of my friend and colleague capt Peter Barnes, RotorMotion's ability to conduct normal business was seriously impaired as we did all we could to aid the accident investigation.

“The timely approach from Castle Air led me to believe that this would be a good time to refocus my aims while securing the futures of my staff.”
