Caverton Helicopters Limited, a subsidiary of The Caverton Offshore Support Group Plc, announced that the company has entered a purchase agreement with Dallas-based Bell Helicopter for eight brand-new Bell 407GXPs. The addition to Caverton Helicopter’s growing fleet of helicopters marks a milestone in the company’s long-term fleet development plan across a diverse range of industries and will be deployed throughout the company’s West African operations.
“We are delighted to be expanding our fleet and our longstanding relationship with Bell Helicopter,” said Josiah Choms, managing director, Caverton Helicopters. “Caverton offers marine and aviation logistics and support services to oil-and-gas companies located along the West African shelf. 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.”
Caverton also signed a support services agreement for the newly-purchased 407GXP helicopters for technical assistance provided by Bell Helicopter’s support solution, the Customer Advantage Plan (CAP).
