Cabair operates seven private pilot license schools around the London area and additional commercial pilot training schools in the UK, Spain, USA, Canada and the UAE. Derek Edwards, Director of Cabair Flying Schools, said, "The new helicopters will be used at the private pilot license schools for training and self-fly hire. We have a substantial number of helicopter pilot members who deserve an exciting alternative helicopter to fly."
Schweizer President Paul Schweizer said, "The 300CBi helicopter is the optimal training helicopter on the market, and Cabair's recent purchases helps to reinforce that fact. We are very pleased to have a world renowned company like Cabair training in our helicopters."
CSE Aircraft Sales, Schweizer Aircraft's distributor in the UK, sold the aircraft to Cabair. "Cabair has an outstanding reputation for flight training in the United Kingdom, and we are confident that the Schweizer 300CBi helicopter will be a successful component of their operation," said CSE Managing Director Steve Jones. "We look forward to working with them in the future."
