Canadian Company Expanding Its Business In South America
Canadian helicopter maintenance company Heli-One has signed an
agreement to provide new tip-to-tail power-by-the-hour (PBH) and
upgrade services to a number of Brazilian offshore operators.
Heli-One was chosen by Omni Taxi Aereo Brazil to service its
S76C++ fleet as well as Omni's additional S61 aircraft. Heli-One
has now five PBH agreements with Omni Taxi Aereo, supporting two
S76C aircraft, two S61s and four S76C++ helicopters, playing an
important role in Omni's fleet support. Senior Taxi Aereo also
signed a contract with Heli-One for the upgrade and modifications
of its S76C+ fleet, consolidating Heli-One as an important partner
for their key projects.
Total anticipated revenue from these new contracts is estimated
at $26 million over the contract terms (excluding options).

including contracts involving Sikorsky S-76 and B412 repair,
overhaul, and maintenance support, S76C, S61, S76C++ PBH, S76C+

contracts, Heli-One supports over 60 helicopters in Brazil, a
testament to the company's commitment to servicing Brazil and other
South American operators.
