Bond Offshore Orders Two More EC225s
Bond Offshore Helicopters will acquire two Eurocopter EC225 Super Pumas to support its expansion of services to the offshore oil and gas industry in the United Kingdom and internationally. In addition, the privately-owned British company has taken options to purchase three more EC225. The total package is valued at more than $90 million. Eurocopter is to deliver the first two helicopters in the second quarter of 2008. Bond plans to add about 30 employees to staff the first of the two new aircraft. Bond operates a fleet of seven Super Puma AS332L Mark 2s.
