Lider Aviacao diversifies fleet with two sturdy H135s
Brazil's Lider Aviacao has more than four decades of experience providing transportation services to the oil and gas industry. Two H135s from Helibras will improve the organisation's offering.
Lider's two H135s feature Helionix avionics, which aim to reduce the pilot's workload and provide greater operational flexibility and safety.

Brazilian operator Lider Aviacao has taken delivery of two H135 helicopters from Helibras, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Airbus Helicopters. The contract was signed during the second half of this year and includes the provision of rotorcraft configured for offshore operations such as passenger transport and medical evacuation missions in the oil and gas market.

According to Junia Hermont, supervisory director of Lider Aviacao, the two models will further diversify the fleet and add another area of expertise to the company, which has been active for more than 40 years in the oil and gas market. “We are pleased with this acquisition and have already trained the entire team in the operation of this aircraft model,” she comments.

“Flexibility, reduced maintenance and lower operating costs make the H135 the perfect model for offshore operations,” adds Helibras president Richard Marelli. “We believe that this versatile twin engine type will be a major enhancement to Lider's diverse fleet.”

The H135 is renowned for its robustness, compact construction, low noise levels, versatility and low cost. The model can perform well in hot and high conditions and can transport sizeable cargo loads over long distances.
