GHS leases H225 for African humanitarian flights German operator Global Helicopter Service (GHS) has taken an Airbus Helicopters H225 on lease from Waypoint Leasing. The aircraft will be used for utility and humanitarian support missions in Africa.

“Waypoint's creative and responsive approach is a great match for GHS,” says CEO Dominik Goldfuss. “We have a strong track record operating humanitarian and mission critical helicopters, especially in west and central Africa for the United Nations' World Food Programme, Médecins Sans Frontières and other end users. The H225 will enhance our capabilities with impressive performance and will allow us to serve new missions, which will require excellent load and range capabilities.”

Waypoint CEO Ed Washecka adds: “This transaction demonstrates Waypoint's confidence in oppor-tunities for the H225. It is a modern, safe and efficient aircraft, which is increasingly displacing older, less capable aircraft in this market. We believe that its performance and capabilities put it in a strong position to deliver utility and humanitarian missions, and we are excited about working with GHS.”

GHS was founded in 2014 to provide helicopter services for the oil, gas, mining, non-profit and government sectors.
