Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, has announced the signature of a purchase agreement with Caverton Helicopters Limited, a subsidiary of Caverton Offshore Support Group Plc, for eight Bell 407GXPs. The Group operates in the marine and aviation logistics sectors for the oil-and-gas industry and employs more than 700 employees in Nigeria.
Delivery of the aircraft is scheduled to begin later this year.
“Our company offers logistics and support services to the Nigerian oil-and-gas companies located along the West African shelf,” said Josiah Choms, Ph.D., managing director, Caverton Helicopters. “Identifying the best aircraft to effectively carry out the mission is key and we believe the Bell 407GXP’s proven track record, particularly its speed and efficient operating cost, make it the perfect light single helicopter for this job.”
In addition, the group signed the eight 407GXPs for Bell Helicopter’s Customer Advantage Plan (CAP) support solution.
