That acquisition will focus on the 19 ageing Airbus Helicopters H155 medium-twins – the first of which was delivered in 1999, according to Cirium fleets data - and the most elderly examples of its heavier AS332 L1s, the oldest of which arrived in 1982.
In total, 12 of the early Super Pumas are around 30 years old.
