Orlando, Florida-based The HeliTeam has established SpeedBird, a private air charter services division that will use its own pilots and a small fleet of managed and owned turbine aircraft. SpeedBird’s fleet includes a Cessna Citation CJ2, CJ3, and X, Beechjet 400A, and Beechcraft King Air 350. It will be led by The HeliTeam founder and CEO Christopher Bull.
“SpeedBird is a unique addition to The HeliTeam's comprehensive suite of aviation services,” said Bull. “Launching our private air charter service in Orlando allows our clients to access destinations far and wide, from one of the most convenient and in-demand locations for both luxury and business travel. Our executive team and in-house charter and operations support teams further represent the finest in aviation and customer service.”
The HeliTeam is an FAA Part 135, 133, and 137 operator providing charter, aerial application and crop dusting, electronic newsgathering, firefighting, and external load and utility transport using a fleet of turbine airplanes and helicopters.
