CHARTERS TO REMEMBER
01: THE FINE LINE
In late 2012 Air Charter Service was called upon to retrieve a Sea King helicopter that was left stranded on top of a mountain in the Arctic Circle, after a heavy landing damaged the undercarriage, meaning that it was not safe for it to fly back to its base.
How do you rescue a helicopter?
06: FAST FOOD
In May 2007 Air Charter Service was called into urgent action to fly 14 tonnes of burgers from Belgium to Sweden after a popular fast food restaurant ran out of the specific meat required for the product launch of a new type of burger.
Did they make it in time for the product launch?
11: A HEAVY LOAD
In 2016 Air Charter Service’s Brazil and Florida offices worked together to charter Antonov Airlines’ giant AN-225 to carry the heaviest single piece of air cargo to be flown in the Americas.
The huge transformer, which weighed in at 182 tonnes, was flown from São Paulo to Santiago de Chile.
13: ACS KEEPS WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT ON TRACK
Air Charter Service was called upon to help complete ‘Cape to Cape 2.0’, a world record attempt driving from the southernmost point in South Africa to the northernmost in Norway.
Why would an aircraft charter company be required in such an adventure?
