Lynton's Steve Ayling says: "The S-76C++ contract is the third to be signed for a customer within the U.K."

He adds: "Favourable exchange rates now place the S-76C++ within reach of many more operators."

Trustair says that factors in its decision to acquire the S-76C++ include an array of options that come as standard. It offers EGPWS, TCAS, dual Mode S w/Diversity, lightning strike protection, UNS-1F FMS, RTU 4200s, satellite communications system, Primus 880 Wx avoidance radar, moving map, a Keystone silencer interior and Sikorsky's 'quiet gearbox' technology.

Lynton Aviation Aircraft Sales and its parent company Oxford Aviation Services are located at Oxford Airport and are subsidiaries of BBA Group.
