Heli-One, an operating division of the CHC Group, announced today it has been awarded a new contract by FMV (the Swedish Defence Material Administration) to complete avionic upgrades on two Eurocopter AS332M1 Super Puma helicopters.

The helicopters will receive avionic upgrades and Night Vision Goggle ("NVG") installation at Heli-One's facility in Stavanger, Norway. The upgrades are expected to commence in the Spring of 2009 and represent approximately CDN 11.2 million in revenue.

The Super Pumas are two of nine operated by the Swedish Armed Forces. Heli-One's relationship with FMV spans more than 15 years, and Heli-One has already completed upgrades on three other Super Pumas for the Swedish Armed Forces. This contract further reinforces Heli-One's commitment to building lasting relationships with its customers.
