AgustaWestland (Booth No. 3728) has signed a service center network agreement with Heli-One of Canada to provide support for CHC Helicopter’s fleet of AW139 helicopters in Europe, North America and Australia. CHC provides helicopter services to the oil and gas industry, as well as search-and-rescue services to government agencies in the UK, Ireland and Australia. It accepted delivery of the first AW139 in 2005 and has placed orders for 33 to date. It is also the flight-hour leader for that model, with more than 20,000 logged since 2005. The new agreement specifies that Heli-One will perform service and overhauls for the CHC fleet and a number of other AW139 operators at its new Vancouver-based facility.
