Billed As First Executive International Helicopter Service
Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation and its subsidiary Associated
Aircraft Group recently announced to the nation's business aircraft
industry the launch of AAG Global, an executive helicopter service
providing the industry's highest level of service and reliability
to travelers around the world.
"AAG Global will be providing the industry's first executive
helicopter service to clients traveling internationally," said AAG
Global Executive VP Tom McQuade. "Travelers will be assured
seamless access to the most efficient travel no matter where in the
world their travels take them."
The announcement was made during last week's National Business
Aviation Association convention and trade show in Orlando, FL.
The international network of AAG Global Member/Operators fly
Sikorsky S-76 helicopters, and must meet and maintain AAG Global
Standards of Excellence for safety and service. The standards were
developed exclusively for AAG Global and will be audited by
Aviation Research Group/US, Inc. (ARG/US).
AAG Global executives say the standards address every aspect of
service from the interior accoutrements of the aircraft to client
personal preferences in onboard catering. Pilot qualifications,
ease of flight reservations, safety inspections and timeliness in
departures and arrivals are but a few of the Standards of
Excellence provided by AAG Global Member/Operators.
"The bottom line is that executive travelers now have a resource
that assures them a consistent level of service and ease of making
their travel reservations no matter where in the world they
travel," continued McQuade. "We've recognized that the most
effective way to deliver the level of quality executive travelers
demand is to link established operators who can meet and maintain
the rigorous standards expected by executive travelers."
The AAG Global network will adhere to service and business
practices perfected over a period of two decades of success by
Associated Aircraft Group (AAG), metropolitan New York's only
integrated services helicopter group.
