Malaysian based Weststar Aviation continues their international expansion with a direct interest in operations just starting in Morroco. This country represents their third country and the first outside their Far East home region.

Weststar Aviation are providing technical assistance to Heliconia Aero Solutions who are operating two AW139s on their Moroccan AOC with each party supplying one aircraft.  The aircraft have been leased from AgustaWestland, with one either bought back or leased in from CHC and being flown in their basic colours. The second aircraft has more recently been in the manufacturer’s training fleet. Both are operating on the French register.

The two helicopters are based at Agadir, and operating for Kosmos Energy. Weststar declined to state in an email response to HeliHub.com how long the contract was for. Kosmos has extensive drilling rights of approximately 22,000 square miles in the Atlantic off Morocco.
