Aurora, Ore.-based Columbia Helicopters has deployed two additional Model 234 Chinooks to Papua New Guinea for petroleum exploration missions. One of the helicopters is under contract with Oil Search Ltd. of Sydney, Australia and the other with Talisman Energy. Each helicopter will have a crew of five to six pilots and up to 12 maintenance personnel, who will consult with load coordinators and load managers. They will join another pair of Chinooks that are currently stationed in Papua New Guinea. (From June 2010 Rotorcraft Report)
