Adding to their portfolio of customers, Meridian Helicopters LLC has executed a three year lease agreement with option to extend for an additional two years with Chopper Charter, LLC of Branson, MO. Chopper Charter is a Part 135 operator and has the aircraft destined for one of its operations catering to charter flights and tourism throughout the mid-western United States.
“We have pledged an unwavering commitment of support through the term of the lease” stated Michael Bashlor – Managing Partner. “Our commitment to all of our customers is to keep them flying and our substantial investment into component/engine rotables and inventory assures this. Whether scheduled or un-scheduled, maintenance events are minimized or eliminated due to careful planning and preparation.”
A Bell 206L3 (Showcased at Heli-Expo 2016 – static display booth 21) will be delivered soon after the event to Chopper Charter. “The acquisition of this aircraft will provide an up level experience for our current and future clientele” stated Mark Boyer of Chopper Charter. We look forward to a very positive and long relationship with Meridian Helicopters.”
The completely refurbished helicopter boasts virtually zero time components. A Garmin G500 glass cockpit adds enhanced safety to the distinguished and already reliable Bell 206L3 Longranger. New exterior paint and an interior makeover complete the aircraft for an on time delivery to Davis Aviation.
Meridian Helicopters continues to add additional Bell light aircraft to their fleet as the requirement for long term leases continue to emerge. Their sights are also set on additional service and support capabilities which will allow for an even more complete end user experience. This combined with highly trained personnel and a customer driven business philosophy is Meridian’s recipe for success.
