Macquarie Rotorcraft Leasing has agreed to acquire two S-92 and two S-76 helicopters from Sikorsky Aircraft.

These helicopters will be initially configured for the oil and gas service markets, says the lessor in a statement.

The lessor also signed up for a "number of options" for additional S-92A and S-76D helicopters.

Stephen Cook, global head of transportation finance, Macquarie Group, says: “The acquisition will provide customers with access to a portfolio of new helicopters and the flexibility of multiple sale and leaseback options, in addition to electing to lease pre-owned helicopters."
