KUCHING: Hornbill Skyways will continue to expand its fleet of aircraft to meet increasing demand especially with the implementation of the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE), said Hornbill Skyways Executive Chairman Aidan Wing.
“With the implementation of the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE), we will consider purchasing additional aircraft to beef up our strength in the very near future,” Aidan told Eastern Times prior for a test flight on board the Hawker 400XP jet at Hornbill Skyway hangar here yesterday.
Hawker 400XP jet is manufactured by Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC), based in Wichita, Kansas, the United States of America.
He said Hornbill Skyways had purchased an aircraft from the same manufacturer, the Beechcraft King Air B200GT early this year for USD5.3 milion (RM17.9 million) (*1USD=RM3.38*).
“The aircraft is now undergoing camera fixing in Australia and will be ready for use by the end of the year. The aircraft will provide extra services for aerial survey as well as for private and government charter,” he said.
Hornbill Skyways has two fixed-wing aircraft and nine helicopters.
