Two EC225s delivered yesterday are the initial Eurocopter-built aircraft in the portfolio of Waypoint Leasing, a leading global helicopter leasing company. Waypoint has signed an agreement to provide the aircraft to Avincis Group’s subsidiary, Bond Helicopters Australia, to use for offshore crew change missions.

The EC225 handovers to Waypoint Leasing occurred at Eurocopter’s Marignane, France production facility, and were accepted in a process including the participation of a team from Bond Helicopters Australia.

After the aircraft’s arrival in Australia, the helicopters will be used to service Bond’s multi-million dollar, five year contract with the PTTEP Australasia Group of Companies – which is part of Thailand’s national petroleum exploration and production company.
