MacroAsia Air Taxi Services, Inc. (MAATS) was incorporated in June of 1996 as a licensed, non-scheduled domestic flight operator based at the General Aviation Area, Manila Domestic Airport.
It is duly licensed by the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) and holds a Carrier Operating Certificate issued by the Air Transportation Office (ATO). Both licenses are renewed on an annual basis.
MAATS provides helicopter chartering service from its base to any point within the Philippines, utilizing an Ecureuil AS350-B2, – a 5-passenger aircraft powered by a Turbomeca Arriel engine. It has a float kit reserved for emergency water landing requirements.
To ensure that quality and safety are not compromised, MAATS ensures that its aircraft receives a year-round preventive maintenance in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications. On the other hand, the pilot and mechanics undergo a year-round training program in order to keep abreast of the latest trends on operational safety and efficiency.
