Second H145 Delivered to Peruvian Los Andes
Airbus Helicopters, January 25, 2019 - Donauwörth, Germany - Airbus has delivered a second H145 helicopter to Servicios Aéreos Los Andes, a Peruvian operator specializing in air services for the energy industry.

It is the second aircraft of this model that Los Andes receives under a leasing contract with Waypoint Leasing.

The new helicopter will be based in Kiteni, near Cuzco, and will carry out transport missions of passengers and external cargo in support of the main Peruvian gas pipeline.

"Two years ago we started operations with a first H145 helicopter in the harshest conditions of the Peruvian Andes mountains and we are extremely satisfied with the performance of the aircraft, which has already accumulated 900 hours of flight with an availability close to 95%", said Luis Aurelio Fontenoy Miranda, General Manager of Los Andes Air Services.

"This second H145 will enter into operation in the Amazon rainforest under equally demanding operating conditions, not only due to the environment but also to the nature of the internal and external cargo mission."

"I appreciate the confidence of Los Andes in the H145. Because of its versatility, power to operate in heat and altitude conditions, and operational and economic efficiency, it is the ideal helicopter for the various operations that Los Andes performs in extreme conditions ", said Jerome Ronssin, Managing Director of Airbus Helicopters for the Southern Cone. "Los Andes will be able to count on Airbus support to continue enjoying a high availability of the helicopter."

When it received its first H145 in 2017, Los Andes became the first operator of this model in Latin America. Today, in addition to the two H145 of Peru, this model is in service in Argentina, Brazil and Chile, and is confirmed as the new reference in the region for operations in heat and altitude conditions.

The H145 is the most powerful helicopter in its category and incorporates state-of-the-art technological innovations such as the four-axis autopilot and the new Airion Helionix avionics, designed to offer greater mission flexibility and improve flight safety.
