CHC Helicopter has launched its super medium aircraft program with a commitment to lease five new aircraft from GECAS’ Milestone Aviation Group Limited (Milestone). This transaction will add three new Leonardo AW189s and two Airbus H175s from Milestone’s order book with the manufacturers to CHC’s global fleet.
The new aircraft will be configured for energy transport missions and will serve CHC customers in the North Sea and Australia.
“We are working closely with Milestone to carefully build a productive, safe and reliable fleet to meet the varying needs of our customers throughout the world,” said Karl Fessenden, president and CEO of CHC Helicopter. “Milestone has been a valuable leasing partner towards this goal, with a diverse order book across manufacturers and types, and deep expertise in aircraft operational capabilities.”
