LCI takes first H175 helicopter for operation by CHC

Lessor LCI has taken delivery of its first Airbus Helicopters H175, which has been placed with customer CHC Scotia for operation in the North Sea.

The 7.8t rotorcraft (G-EMEB) is to be based in Aberdeen and will service the offshore oil and gas industry.

There are currently 18 H175 aircraft supporting oil and gas activities – the majority flown by Belgium's Noordzee Helikopters Vlaanderen – with an accumulated flying time exceeding 16,000h.

CHC Scotia already operates another 16-passenger H175 (G-EMEA) in Aberdeen, with the helicopter delivered in late July on lease from Milestone Aviation.
