Marignane, France – December 2013

Waypoint Leasing has taken delivery of two EC225 helicopters from Eurocopter at the Eurocopter Marignane production facility in France. The aircraft will be provided to Avincis Group’s subsidiary, Bond Helicopters Australia, under a sale and lease back agreement.

Bond Helicopters will use the aircraft for offshore crew change missions as part of the company’s multi-million dollar, five year contract with the PTTEP Australasia Group of Companies – part of Thailand’s national petroleum exploration and production company.

Ed Washecka, CEO, Waypoint Leasing, said: ‘We are pleased to receive delivery of the EC225s, the first Eurocopter aircraft in our growing fleet, and to partner with Bond Helicopters Australia, a premier provider of energy support services to one of the fastest growing offshore oil and gas markets in the world.

‘Waypoint’s principals have worked with Eurocopter as well as Bond and other Avincis companies for many years, and we appreciate their ongoing support. This agreement exemplifies our approach to building lasting relationships with our partners.’

Eurocopter and Waypoint Leasing have already established a comprehensive commercial and marketing partnership for helicopter leasing, which includes the full capabilities of Eurocopter’s comprehensive Parts-by-the-Hour (PBH) support services.
