Following the company’s success at winning the Woodside Energy contract from Bristows, AUstralia’s largest commercial operator is moving its local office from Adelaide to Perth.  CHC will  be flying four Eurocopter EC225 and two AgustaWestland AW139 helicopters on the contract, based out of Karratha in Western Australia – nearly 1,000 miles north of Perth.  The contract adds to the company’s current workforce of 420 people at 22 bases across Australia.

The company’s current office in the Wayville suburb of Adelaide has been sold to Australian Industry Group, who take possession on 1st June, the day the Woodside contract starts.  CHC Helicopters has been an South Australia success story, trading under the Lloyd Helicopters name (the company it took over) until 2000 when its changed its branding to its Canadian-based parent CHC.

In 2004 CHC secured a ten year, Au$129M deal with the Royal Australiaj Air Force to operate its SAR aircraft, adding to its now 31-year-old dedicated air ambulance service which operates in Queensland, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, Western Australia.
