Airbus Gets Large Order for 37 From Waypoint Leasing

By Staff Writer | April 1, 2014

Two major Waypoint Leasing orders with Airbus Helicopters were announced Tuesday as the global helicopter lessor intends to acquire 37 EC225 and EC145 T2 rotorcraft. These key transactions, Waypoint’s first deliveries in 2014, were detailed at the Heli-Expo in Anaheim, where Airbus Helicopters President Guillaume Faury and Waypoint Leasing CEO Ed Washecka confirmed the bookings. With deliveries planned through 2017, Waypoint Leasing will further expand its portfolio of Airbus Helicopters rotorcraft – which already includes two EC225s purchased last year for offshore operations in Australia through sale and leasebacks with oil and gas operator Bond Helicopters Australia. Waypoint’s EC145 T2s will receive power from Turbomeca Arriel 2E engines, and delivered in a versatile configuration to address multiple markets – primarily offshore missions and emergency medical services.
