Nova Capital, the European independent helicopter and aircraft lessor, today announced the award of a sale and leaseback facility for (6) factory new AIRBUS H145D3 helicopters in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) configuration, including two (2) options.
These latest portfolio additions expand Nova’s owned and managed fleet to 89 Helicopters and 14 fixed-wing aircraft, with a combined total value surpassing US$ 500 million.
All of the factory new H145D3 will be the latest variants including the new five blade rotor technology. They will join 41 existing Nova helicopters that are already deployed in Europe on EMS missions. Each of the new aircraft will benefit from a long-term lease contract, and maintenance support programs from AIRBUS HELICOPTERS and SAFRAN HELICOPTER ENGINES.
Deliveries are scheduled to occur from December 2021 to April 2022.
Olivier Piot, Founder and CEO of Nova Capital Group commented; “We are delighted to further re-inforce our presence in the European EMS market with these state-of-the-art assets. These brand new “five blade” H145D3’s really bring the most modern, and best in class equipment to our valued customers, and are a long-term and resilient investment from our perspective.
I am personally thrilled at Nova having now reached the momentous achievement of having over 100 aircraft in our fleet, which is now valued at US$ 500+ million. And to top it all, this is coming just in time to celebrate our company’s 20th birthday in 2022. I want to warmly thank all of the Nova Capital team members and partners, who through their continuing efforts over many years have contributed so much to our ongoing success, while also helping to provide many mission critical services for our wider community.”
