Waypoint Leasing Ltd. said it will place two Leonardo AW139s with customers in Africa and Asia. The company said the helicopters are being returned from CHC Helicopter and re-deployed for oil and gas operations.
Waypoint said it is trying to remarket former CHC aircraft. Waypoint CEO (and R&WI Editorial Advisory Board member) Ed Washecka said these efforts will likely "translate into further new transactions ... as the price of oil stabilizes and other end markets increasingly rely on helicopter leasing to fulfill their missions."
Waypoint has been active in supporting utility, firefighting and other industrial helicopter operators.
