VFS Offers Modernized Super Pumas for Lease

 - March 6, 2013, 11:15 PM

Vector Financial Services Ireland announced at Heli-Expo ’13 availability of a fleet of customized Super Puma AS332Ls, including new leasing and hourly support options, aimed at utility operators in the European Union, UN and NATO countries.

“Our lease program gives customers the ability to operate a Super Puma AS332L helicopter…without the large capital investment associated with outright purchase of either a second-hand aircraft or the associated typical aircraft financial lease type obligations,” said Vector UK managing director Michael Tyrell.

Vector purchased the AS332L fleet from an offshore operator in March 2012. All offshore support equipment was removed, and the aircraft have been modernized–including installation of cockpit voice/flight data recording equipment and night-vision goggle systems–before being offered for lease.
