Omni Helicopters International has agreed sale and leasebacks on 11 helicopters with Milestone Aviation.

The leases cover a mixture of new Leonardo AW139s and existing Sikorsky S92s.

“Omni was Milestone’s very first customer and we are incredibly proud to extend that partnership which has spanned more than a decade,” said Pat Sheedy, President & CEO, Milestone. “We are delighted to continue to support the diversification of their fleet and the growth of their operations across Latin America and Africa.”

Milestone has 22 helicopters on lease to Omni.

“Milestone is a strong and reliable partner.  Their teams’ market insights, creativity, and responsiveness are complementary to ours and we work very well together,” said Jeremy Akel, OHI Group CEO. “We are deeply appreciative of their support that has enabled our consistent growth which started when we leased the first helicopter from them in 2010.”
