Esperia acquires Grand as helicopter hub plans progress
Italy's Esperia Aviation Services SpA is acquiring a Grand light twin for charter services at Rome's Urbe airport.

Italy's Esperia Aviation Services SpA is acquiring a Grand light twin for charter services at Rome's Urbe airport. The company says the Grand, configured with six seats, has a spacious cabin and interior crafted to the highest standards. "It has a superior performance with a maximum cruise speed of 155 kts, a maximum range of 432 nautical miles and an endurance of over four hours. It also offers advanced avionics, high levels of safety, low operating costs and excellent customer support."

The Grand is fitted with advanced composite rotor blades that reduce noise level well below ICAO limits. The company adds: "Esperia is developing its highly personalised flight services capability. At the same time, it is involved in the development of infrastructure."

A partnership between AgustaWestland and Esperia, launched in April 2008, aims to establish a helicopter hub at Urbe. Esperia is building new hangars and hospitality and office areas. At the same time AgustaWestland is establishing a helicopter main-tenance centre. "The two companies are now committed to further expanding this partnership with additional similar initiatives in other parts of Italy," AgustaWestland says.
