Waypoint leases H225 to GHS
Waypoint Leasing will lease one Airbus H225 helicopter to Germany's Global Helicopter Service (GHS), the company announced on 10 January.
GHS, which has a strong presence in Africa, will deploy the helicopter for utility and humanitarian support missions.
Ed Washecka, CEO of Waypoint, said: ‘This transaction demonstrates Waypoint’s confidence in opportunities for the H225, a modern, safe and efficient aircraft, which is increasingly displacing older, less capable aircraft in this market.
‘We believe that the performance and utility of the H225 put the helicopter in a strong position to deliver excellent capabilities in utility and humanitarian missions, and we are excited about working with GHS, a leading operator in the segment.’
With an already strong presence supporting oil and gas, utility, firefighting and other industrial-focused helicopter operators, this transaction will further diversify Waypoint’s activity into the utility and humanitarian support segment.
