Waypoint Leasing will deliver two H135s from its order book on lease to Australian operator Mackay Helicopters.

The helicopter will operate out of Mackay’s North Queensland base on specialist marine pilot transfer operations.

Ian Vanderbeek, CEO of Aviator Group, Mackay’s parent company, said, “The H135 is an excellent addition to our fleet and is the ideal aircraft for our business. We worked closely with Waypoint during the tender process and found them to be very knowledgeable and responsive to our needs and requests.”

This lease will diversify Waypoint’s operations into the utility support sector

Chris Wakefield, vice president of sales and relationship management, Australia and New Zealand at Waypoint, added, “We are excited to support Mackay Helicopters in its successful tender in North Queensland and to further reinforce the H135’s position in the light twin category. We have enjoyed working with the impressive Mackay team and hope to further develop our strong relationship.”
