Belize Operator Gets AOC
Belize City-based Astrum Helicopters in September received its air operator certificate (AOC). The company claims it is the first AOC issued under a new regulation. Founded in 2004, Astrum also said it is the first company to offer commercial helicopter services in the Central American country. Its four- or six-passenger Bell 206s fly mainly between Belize City, local airports and private heliports.
