Milestone to Deliver Two S-92’s to CHC
Dublin based subsidiary of Aer Cap, Milestone Aviation has announced that they are to provide two Sikorsky S-92 Search and Rescue (SAR) helicopters to CHC Helicopters. The two Milestone S-92 SAR helicopters will be used to support a multi-year contract recently awarded to CHC by Norway’s Ministry of Justice for SAR services. The helicopters will be delivered in January 2022 and will be based in Tromsø, Norway, and will commence missions shortly thereafter.
Commenting on the deal, the Head of Emerging Markets at Milestone, Michael York said, “Thanks to the strength and depth of our expert team, Milestone was uniquely placed to deliver these bespoke configuration SAR S-92 helicopters. This agreement also further expands Milestone’s deep commitment to mission critical lifesaving SAR operations, and we are therefore immensely proud to support CHC in their SAR missions across Norway.”
Also commenting was the Vice President Sales at CHC, Brady Nicholls who added, “We are delighted to expand our fleet with the delivery of these two SAR S-92 helicopters from Milestone. CHC is proud to have won the contract with Norway’s Ministry of Justice and these aircraft will help us meet our obligations in providing exceptional SAR service.”
Milestone has long been a partner to CHC and already has leases with CHC with aircraft deployed across a variety of its missions, including oil and gas, EMS (Emergency Medical Services) and SAR.
