INFLITE Expands Fleet – Adds PAC 750 XL
We’re thrilled to confirm the purchase of a PAC 750 XL aircraft. The PAC 750 is designed and manufactured by Pacific Aerospace in Hamilton and is the first plane in the world purpose-built for skydiving.
With a load of up to 17 passengers the aircraft will enable us to double our daily capacity along New Zealand’s West Coast, with Skydive Franz Josef & Fox Glacier businesses.
Until now, INFLITE has used the Pilatus Porter PC-6 for skydiving. The addition of the PAC 750 will enable this aircraft to return home as the third Ski Plane at Mount Cook Ski Planes and Helicopters.
INFLITE Group acquired Skydive Franz Josef in 2018 and the business has performed strongly since then leading to a rapid expansion of skydive operations – initially with the purchase of Skydive Abel Tasman, then the establishment of Skydive Mt. Cook and acquisition of Skydive Fox Glacier.
INFLITE CEO Adam Joyce says “Our new fleet addition adds much needed capacity to both our Franz Josef/Fox and Aoraki/Mt Cook businesses. With this added capacity comes the requirement for additional jobs, we are on the hunt for great front-line staff and Tandem Masters across our South Island locations to assist with capacity increases.”
