Bond Helicopters coming to Norwich

Rumour has it that Bond Helicopters have ordered 3 365N3 for a contract out of Norwich Airport and have at least 1 based offshore?

Thought BAS would've built a heliport in Lowestoft or maybe acquired some 429 in the near future for this

But BAS don't operate 365s at all unless as you guys said could be NHV

I think you will find that Bond have gained from CHC part of the work for Perenco with an N3 based in the Leman field, but it doesnt start until March 2010.

CHC retain the rest of the Perenco contract.

NHV were doing a short (summer) contract for Perenco manning up a satellite platform that's why they were seen at Norwich. The Perenco offshore based contract is coming up and I think both Bond and NHV are bidding for it. Does anyone know for sure if Bond's have got it?

Bond in Norwich

Bond will have 365N3 in Norwich for Perenco work.

A new hangar is being built in Lowestoft for the wind farm work which will be accomplished by 2 X EC135s which will be Winch equipped.

Both contracts start in 2010
