LCI, a leading aviation leasing company, today announced that it has taken delivery of its 100th helicopter engine from Pratt & Whitney Canada.
Pratt & Whitney Canada engines power many of LCI’s next generation helicopters. These include the PT6C-67C, the PW210A and the PW207 on Leonardo’s AW139, AW169 and the AW109S. The company’s PT6C-67E powers the Airbus H175 helicopter.
These aircraft are deployed on mission-critical services across the globe, including Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Search and Rescue (SAR), offshore wind and energy operations.
Jaspal Jandu, CEO of LCI, said: “Today’s announcement reflects LCI’s commitment to maintaining a young, modern and diverse fleet, and Pratt & Whitney Canada’s commitment to advanced, sustainable technologies. Having engines in our fleet that deliver such outstanding reliability, power and efficiency enables us to meet our customers’ exacting needs whilst also supporting our collective environmental responsibilities.”
“We are pleased with LCI’s continued confidence in Pratt & Whitney Canada’s helicopter engines,” said Nicolas Chabée, vice president, Helicopters, Pratt & Whitney Canada. “Our helicopter engines deliver exceptional performance and reliability in diverse applications and contrasting environments and are particularly suitable to serve the many missions of LCI’s customers. We look forward to supporting LCI and its customers for the years ahead.”
LCI has consistently grown in scale and value as it has diversified over time. The lessor’s highly experienced management team has built strong relationships with aircraft and engine manufacturers, customers, and leading financial institutions.
Since its inception in 2004, LCI has undertaken in excess of US$8 billion of transactions in the fixed-wing and helicopter market.
