Dublin, Ireland-based Lobo Leasing has signed a three-year power-by-the-hour contract with Heli-One to provide support for one of its Sikorsky S-76C+ helicopters. Lobo provides operators with a range of leasing and fleet management solutions, including operating leases of new helicopters, sale-and-leasebacks of used helicopters, and sourcing and sale on behalf of customers. The company supports operators around the world serving the offshore oil and gas, search and rescue, air medical and general utility sectors. In addition to Sikorsky S-76s, Lobo's fleet includes S-92, Leonardo AW139, AW189, Bell 407 and Airbus Helicopters AS332L1.

Technical director Stuart Jackson states: “Heli-One has great expertise with the S-76 and we know our aircraft will be in good hands. More generally, it has expert in-house MRO capabilities; its number of OEM approvals for maintenance and overhauls is second to none. We find it to be very responsive to our customers' needs.”

Heli-One has decades of experience supporting the S-76 and its Canadian facility is a Sikorsky authorised S-76 support centre. It has supported more than 700,000 flight hours on the type and has MRO facilities in Norway and Poland.
