Heli-One Canada has signed a multi-year MRO agreement for Lago, Nigeria-based offshore operator Caverton Helicopters’ Sikorsky S-76C++ fleet. The agreement includes maintenance support of the medium twin’s airframe, components (including dynamics), avionics, rotor blades, and rescue equipment.
“This agreement will ensure that Caverton will be covered for all planned and unplanned events at a predictable cost,” said Heli-One president Eddie Lane. “We have great turnaround times and innovative repairs for the S-76, helping Caverton reduce aircraft downtime and for them to continue providing key services for the Nigerian region.”
Caverton Helicopters’ fleet also comprises light singles and medium twins from Airbus, Bell, and Leonardo, providing offshore transport, as well as medevac, search and rescue, and maritime and coastal surveillance. It is a unit of the Caverton Offshore Support Group. “By utilizing Heli-One’s maintenance program, we can plan for predictable maintenance budgets, covering both scheduled and unscheduled events, maximizing our aircraft’s availability,” said Caverton Helicopters technical director Sean Ward.
