Milestone Aviation Group leases two Bell 412SPs to FAASA of Spain
Milestone Aviation Group has agreed to lease two Bell 412SP helicopters to FAASA Aviacion S.A., to support the Spanish company’s expanded firefighting services.
The two helicopters, owned by Milestone, were previously on lease to a Brazilian operator and used in oil and gas support missions. They are currently in Spain, where FAASA is carrying out reconfiguration work to facilitate its new firefighting mission.
“Milestone is proud to begin a new partnership with FAASA, a long established and respected helicopter operator and service provider.”
Sebastien Moulin, commercial vice president of Milestone, said: “Milestone is proud to begin a new partnership with FAASA, a long established and respected helicopter operator and service provider. We are very pleased to provide the helicopters that meet their needs, and again prove the versatility of this asset class transitioning helicopters from a primarily oil and gas mission to a firefighting mission.”
Hector Tamarit Almagro, CEO of FAASA, added: “FAASA has a 50-year history of providing safe and reliable helicopter utility services. We operate a fleet of over 80 helicopters in both Europe and South America – Milestone is an ideal leasing partner for us with a truly global team and a diverse fleet of helicopters. We look forward to continuing to partner with Milestone as we innovate our business.”
