PHOENIX -- Bruce Haffner on Monday officially announced his partnership with Penguin Air & Home Serivces

"They're going to be a great partnership for us," he told 3TV's Scott Pasmore and Kaley O'Kelley as he showed off the helicopter's new wrap.

Haffner even introduced his new co-pilot, Waddles, Penguin Air's mascot.

"We're going full-blown -- the Penguin Air NewsChopper," Haffner said. "It is absolutely the only flying penguin -- in the world."

Based in Tempe, Penguin Air & Home Services is on call 24 hours a day to handle your air-conditioning, heating and plumbing needs.

Owned by a pair of Arizona natives with more than 25 years of combined experience and knowledge in the heating and cooling industry, Penguin Air services the entire Phoenix metro area, including the cities of Maricopa County and parts of Pinal County.

The company has been a BBB Accredited Business since April 2011 and carries and A+ rating.

Penguin Air is not just about business; it also is about giving back to the community by sponsoring organizations in need.

"What a cool sponsor to have!" Haffner said, clearly thrilled to have Waddles aboard.

Haffner, a longtime 3TV personality, returned to the air for KTVK and debuted on KPHO (CBS 5) on Oct. 1. His company, Chopperguy LLC, signed a five-year deal with the Valley's groundbreaking news partnership just months after after KPHO's parent company, Meredith, acquired 3TV in late June.
