UMS SKELDAR, the Saab and UMS AERO joint venture, launches leasing packages with JetLease from basic financing to complete managed services, outsourcing of operations and logistics.
World–leader in rotary Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) solutions UMS SKELDAR has joined forces with JetLease, the world’s largest private aircraft leasing company, to launch the first global leasing product for its vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) portfolio, including flagship unmanned helicopter, SKELDAR V-200 UAV.
The new leasing product was announced on the opening day (12th September) at Europe’s largest military and security equipment event, DSEI 2017, London, where UMS SKELDAR – the joint venture between Saab and UMS AERO – is exhibiting alongside Saab on stand number N2-230.
Speaking from JetLease corporate HQ in Palm Beach, Florida, founder and President Russ Dise explained:
UMS SKELDAR will introduce the financial package, featuring dry and wet leasing, to also include optional payloads such as Sentient Vision Systems’ ViDAR, uniquely deploying five to ten cameras, providing between 180 and an optimal 360-degree maritime domain awareness for the first time.
According to Axel Cavalli-Björkman, CEO of the Swiss-Swedish joint venture between Saab AB and UMS AERO, the SKELDAR V-200 is already recognised as the ideal UAV platform for navies worldwide and a range of maritime and land scenarios.
