Caverton Helicopters has signed a purchase agreement for a Bell 429, to be utilised for offshore operations in Cameroon. This is the first Bell 429 to operate in the oil and gas market in west Africa.

Caverton Helicopters is a subsidiary of the Caverton Offshore Support Group (COSG), a fully integrated offshore support company providing aviation and marine logistics services to businesses operating in the oil and gas industry in Nigeria and across west Africa.

“Having operated a variety of Bell products across our operations over the years, we are excited to continue with this brand, synonymous with excellent performance,” says COSG COO Rotimi Makanjuola. “Introducing the Bell 429 into our fleet is an exciting milestone for us and will enable us to provide the best support for our oil and gas clients across the continent.”

“Caverton’s choice to introduce the Bell 429 into its fleet not only demonstrates the strengthening of our relationship with the company, but also the Bell 429’s ability to exceed the critical requirements of west Africa’s offshore utility market,” says Bell SVP international sales Patrick Moulay. “The hard-working men and women who are the core of the most important industries in west Africa will come to count on the Bell 429 to ensure mission success.”
