Airbus Helicopters has delivered a second H145 helicopter to Peruvian operator Servicios Aereos Los Andes, Helibras announced on 29 January.

This is the second H145 aircraft delivered to Los Andes under a leasing agreement with Waypoint Leasing. The new helicopter will be based in Kiteni, near Cusco, Peru, and will transport passengers and external cargo in support of the main Peruvian gas pipeline.

Luis Aurelio Fontenoy Miranda, general manager of the Los Andes Air Services, said: ‘Two years ago we started operations with a first H145 helicopter in the harshest conditions in the Peruvian Andes and we are extremely pleased with the performance of the aircraft, which has already accumulated 900 flight hours with about 95% availability.

‘This second H145 will come into operation in the Amazon rainforest under equally demanding operational conditions, not only due to the environment but also to the nature of the internal and external cargo mission.’
