Optima Aero leases engines to UI Helicopter


Canadian engine lessor Optima Aero will lease PT6T-3B engines to UI Helicopters to fulfil a Bell 412 support contract with South Korean Forestry Services.

The long term engine leasing contract will supply engines overhauled by Mint Turbines LLC.

Jaeyeon Hwang, production director at UI Helicopters, said: “Optima Aero tailored an advantageous long-term lease offering that enabled UI Helicopter to adjust to customer requirements. Once the service concept agreed, Optima Aero also delivered the engines quickly.”
