UK to Mexico – Shipping a Helicopter
Its not everyday you are asked to assist with shipping a helicopter.
Our Mexico-based client operates an exclusive air chartering company in North America, with a fleet of private jets and helicopters designed for high-profile clientèle.
As an Out-of-profile and project cargo experts Tuscor Lloyds recently undertook an interesting bespoke deep-sea shipment of a helicopter on behalf of a luxury air charter company based in Mexico City. After arranging the flight path from Ireland to a mutually convenient landing site at RAF Bentwood, Tuscor Lloyds assembled a team of specialised packers, engineers and equipment to meet the aircraft in order to prepare it for transport.
Nick Rodriguez of Tuscor Lloyds comments,
‘The volcanic ash cloud over Europe delayed the flight and placed the entire operation under pressure, but the perseverance, patience and tenacity of our team helped to ensure the job went off smoothly and on time. Our client was understandably very pleased to see the safe carriage and delivery of this shipment’.
