No im afraid youll get no gossip from this one pensive. Thats is a privatly operated and owned 407 Galway Helicopters Maintains. There maybe a few work like that around the country but not this one. The EI reg AS350 you see on the webstite is used for charter operations on the other hand. Feel free to call or e-mail the info on the site if you would like a job done....

No 407 on charter eh?? The website might need to be changed then romeofox!

From the home page under the heading "Charter"..


"Galway Helicopters offer a fully tailored charter service. Located just 5 minutes outside of Galway City and operate a range of helicopters including a Bell 407 that can accommodate up to 6 passengers, Galway Helicopters provide customers with a safe and professional charter service."

Other than that the website is very impressive and good luck to all involved.

Duely Noted and will be looked at. Really just a way you read the words. It is misleading. We do operate a 407 that can carry 6 pax. But it is pivate. Not for charter. Thanks it is not something i personally had spotted.. New website and all that...
