LCI to lease six AW139s to Australian Helicopters
LCI, the aviation leasing arm of the Libra Group, has concluded an agreement to lease six new AgustaWestland aircraft to Australian Helicopters, a member of the Babcock Mission Critical Services Group. The AW139s will be progressively delivered to Australian Helicopters through 2015 and 2016 and, following arrival in Australia, will be modified for Emergency Medical Service operations. Once deployed, they will be operated on behalf of Air Ambulance Victoria and in due course replace their older aircraft. These new helicopters will enable Air Ambulance Victoria to deliver a faster and wider aero-medical care service in emergencies across the state as well as rapid transport service for patients between major and rural hospitals.
