Francisco Navarro, general manager of the Airbus Helicopters de México customer centre said: “We highly value the longstanding partnership with Pegaso, and appreciate its confidence in our products. Pegaso can count on the best-in-class support to guarantee the highest availability of its new rotorcraft.”

The H145s will be configured to provide services to the oil & gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico.

Enrique Zepeda, CEO of Pegaso said: “The EC145 has performed very well in our operations, and we look forward to experiencing the enhanced capabilities of the new H145 version.”
