Mountainflyers of Switzerland has taken delivery of an AgustaWestland GrandNew light twin engine helicopter.

Purchased by Centaurium Aviation, this aircraft is equipped with ADS-B Out and will be operated for rotary taxi services from Bern airport.

Using the GrandNew, Mountainflyers will be able to fly a number of routes across Switzerland and Europe, establishing what it claims is Bern's first twin engine helicopter VIP transportation service. This latest delivery brings the number of VIP AgustaWestland helicopters in Switzerland to 20, helping to maintain Leonardo's 50 per cent share in the global VIP multiengine segment.
