Waypoint Leasing Ltd. has closed a lease agreement with Calquin Helicopters S.A. for an Airbus Helicopters AS350 B3. The aircraft will transition from firefighting in Europe to high-altitude utility missions in the Andes Mountains. This is Waypoint's 17th re-lease.
"The underutilized heavy aircraft," said Waypoint CEO Ed Washecka, can be remarketed as demand for helicopters in the utility market increases.
Since 2013, Waypoint has supported utility, firefighting and other industrial-focused helicopter operators.
