TAN Sri Syed Azman Syed Ibrahim’s training in the military may have something to do with how he plans for new business. Instead of reacting to the terms of a new contract, he’d rather have his helicopters on standby in case he wins more jobs.
The cost of doing so is expensive. With the helicopter business being capital intensive, and to secure more contracts, Syed Azman knows he will need more helicopters. Typically a helicopter will cost about US$20mil (RM66mil), depending on size and capacity.
