ASG Helicopter Services' 15th Anniversary continuation of helicopter traditions
The history of creation of the first helicopter squadron of Zabrat airport goes back to the 60s of the last century. Since then, Azerbaijan has developed a stable and developing branch of small aviation, focused on training local professional personnel and operation of the latest aircraft. Over the years, with the direct support of the country's unforgettable Leader Heydar Aliyev, and later the current President of Azerbaijan Mr. Ilham Aliyev, the outdated models of the Republic's air fleet have been replaced by the latest developments of Western aviation giants such as Airbus, Sikorsky, Leonardo Helikopters.
This year "ASG Helicopter Services" MMC, the leader of small aviation in Azerbaijan and the Caspian region, celebrated its 15th anniversary. Today the company performs various types of flights on Sikorsky S-92A, Leonardo Helicopters AW139, AW109SP, MI 8 AMT, Airbus Helicopters AS-332L1, as well as performs maintenance and repair of small aircraft Cessna 172S.
During its existence the company has become recognizable in the market of helicopter services, successfully rebranded, its technical staff is certified by both local and international regulators EASA Part-145 and other international certificates, it is recognized by the leading manufacturer of European Augusta Westland helicopters Leonardo as a "Certified Service Center" for AW type aircraft. The staff of the company has been trained and annually updates its skills and knowledge in international training centers and is highly qualified in the aviation field.
The company is a leader in the field of transportation by small aircraft in the Caspian region. The main type of activity - aviation services to oil giants producing hydrocarbons in the Caspian Sea.
This type of aviation services is truly unique. In emergency cases pilots have to land helicopters on floating platforms and ships, which requires the highest class of piloting and vast experience in conducting such flights.
