SonAir picks Heli-One for Super Puma G-Checks from new Poland Facility

SonAir Serviço Aéreo, S.A. said it will benefit from the world-class maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services offered at Heli-One´s Rzeszow, Poland facility.

Heli-One will perform G-Check inspections and custom painting on four ASS332L2 Super Puma helicopters for SonAir.

“Heli-One´s Poland facility provides us with a service quality, efficiency and affordability that was previously unavailable for the Super Puma in our region,” said Me Joao Andrade, SonAir CEO. “Working with Heli-One we will be able to save money and quickly have our Super Pumas back in the air, safely flying people to and from work.”

The customized 65,000 square-foot hangar in Rzeszow is the newest of Heli-One´s four global facilities and offers customers in Africa, Europe and the Middle East who operate large-capacity, long-range “heavy” helicopters with a convenient, highly skilled option for major refurbishments of their aircraft.

Heli-One is based in Delta, British Columbia, Canada, and has MRO operations in Delta, Canada; Stavanger, Norway; Fort Collins, Colorado; and Rzeszow, Poland. It is a segment of CHC Helicopter, the operating company of CHC Group Ltd. (NYSE: HELI).

SonAir is a helicopter owner and operator in Africa, operating 56 aircraft (32 helicopters and 24 airplanes).
