Bond Offshore Helicopters' two Eurocopter AS365N3 Dauphin helicopters have entered service in the UK sector of the southern North Sea to support crew change operations for oil and gas exploration company Perenco, with whom it has secured a £45 million ($65 million), five-year contract. The medium, twin-engine aircraft are based on the East Leman gas platform - the only helicopter stationed offshore in the southern North Sea, says Bond - and at Norwich Airport. The latest expansion brings Bond's fleet to 14 aircraft.
