Helibras has delivered two Airbus H135
helicopters to Líder Aviação.
The contract, which was signed at the beginning of the
second half of this year, includes the provision of helicopters
configured for offshore operations such as passenger transport and
medical evacuation missions in the Oil & Gas market.
"Flexibility, reduced maintenance and lower
operating costs make the H135 the perfect helicopter for offshore
operations. We believe that this versatile twin engine will be a
major enhancement to Líder's broad fleet,” said Richard Marelli,
president of Helibras.
As one of Airbus Helicopters' most successful
lightweight helicopters, the H135 is known for its high strength,
compact construction, low noise levels, versatility and low
operating and maintenance costs.
According to Junia Hermont, the supervisory
director of Líder Aviação, the two helicopters will further
diversify the fleet and add further expertise to the company,
which has more than 40 years of service in the oil and gas market.
"We are pleased with this acquisition and have already trained the
entire team in the operation of this aircraft model," Junia said.
