Waypoint lease H145 to Acher
Waypoint has signed an agreement to lease one H145 to South African operator Acher Aviation. The helicopter will support offshore oil and gas operations.
It is the first time that Waypoint has leased an aircraft to Acher and will fill the operators demand for a light/medium twin helicopter. Both parties are looking to grow the relationship further.
Ed Washecka, CEO of Waypoint, said: “This lease further underscores Waypoint’s global outlook and our growing presence in Africa, where we now serve customers in eight countries. We are enthusiastic about introducing the H145 into the offshore market and believe that this aircraft will demonstrate the significant opportunities for modern light/medium twins in the segment, which has been traditionally served by legacy helicopter platforms. We believe that this will be the first of many H145 leases to offshore operators.”
