Brazil's Costa do Sol Taxi Aero has expanded its fleet with the addition of two Sikorsky S-76C+x. A new lease agreement for a Sikorsky helicopter follows a previous agreement — for a similar airframe — to serve the oil and gas industry.

The two aircraft are to operate in Rio de Janeiro.

“We are very pleased to support Costa do Sol’s growth plans with the lease of a second S76C+,” said Lobo COO Mark Kelly. “Lobo works to be our customers’ first choice for helicopter leasing and Costa do Sol’s continued business is a highly-valued endorsement. The deployment of both helicopters into offshore oil and gas service in Brazil is an important development and a great credit to the very experienced team at Costa do Sol Taxi Aero."
