Transportes Aereos Pegaso – Mexico
Since 1981, the mission of Transportes Aereos Pegaso's (TAP) has been to deliver excellence in security and service. In 1983, TAP received its first contract with PEMEX (Petroleos Mexicanos), authorizing transport of passengers and cargo to the oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.
In 1998, the International Organization of Standards (ISO) 9001:2000 certificated TAP as the first Mexican aviation company to obtain this international quality assurance certification. TAP has successfully completed more than 1,100,000 flight operations with 600,000 flight hours, transporting more than 2,250,000 passengers. Every year, TAP completes more than 42,000 operations and ensures approximately 112,000 passengers get to their destination on time and safely.
TAP is a certified and authorized Airbus service and training center, making it the leader in helicopter air transport inside Mexico. TAP has more than 30 years of experience in offshore flights serving oil platforms, executive transportation, and cargo missions; it owns a wide range of aircraft and offers numerous services.
- Offshore. TAP has developed and increased its flight activity from Ciudad del Carmen to the Gulf of Mexico.
- Executive. A wide range of aircraft are available at any time.
- Aerial photography.
- Aerial crane. TAP works in close collaboration with production teams, carrying out projects that require heavy-load transportation.
- Aerial firefighting. TAP’s helicopters are a huge asset in firefighting in areas not accessible to terrain vehicles.
- Air ambulance. TAP’s air ambulance services ensure fast and efficient help to the patient.
- EC130. The Eurocopter EC130 is a single-engine light helicopter developed from the earlier AS350 Ecureuil. One of the primary innovations incorporated into this aircraft is a fenestron antitorque device in place of a conventional tail rotor.
- EC135. Prior to the formation of Eurocopter, this aircraft started development in the 1970s under Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm (MBB) under the designation Bo 108.
- EC145. This aircraft was a joint development between Eurocopter and Kawasaki Heavy Industries based on their successful prior joint production, the BK 117 C-1.
- EC155. Originally designated the AS365 N4, the EC155 was developed from the Eurocopter AS365 N3 Dauphin 2, with the aim of significantly increasing the cabin space of the Dauphin.
- H175. This aircraft, manufactured by Airbus, delivers on all counts with its long range, smooth ride, excellent payload lift, and outstanding cabin comfort. Passengers transported in the H175 for crew change missions experience the largest air-conditioned cabin and the most space and window surface per passenger of all helicopters in this class.
