Airbus helicopters has delivered the first H175 to Transportes Aereos Pegos air transport services for oil & gas operations in the Gulf of Mexico.
This makes Transportes Aéreos Pegaso the first company to operate this new 7-ton class helicopter on the American continent for the energy industry in the Gulf of Mexico, the company announced Wednesday.
A second H175 will be delivered in 2017. The new helicopter, apart from providing transport services, it also supports seismic exploration activities in the Mexican waters.
Transportes Aéreos Pegaso has a fleet of more than 30 Airbus Helicopters rotorcraft mainly H145s and H135s but also H130s and H155s.
A few months ago, Pegaso has signed a framework agreement for 10 H145s and will be among the first Latin American customers to operate this most advanced light twin.
The H175 destined for Transportes Aéreos Pegaso is equipped with the most advanced version of the Helionix avionics suite that includes a 4-axis autopilot designed to ease crew workload while offering high safety levels.
New avionics features include the auto-hover function and LPV function (Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance), which is the most precise GPS-enabled instrument approach procedure currently available, to provide pilots with piloting and navigation aids.
The H175 delivers on all counts with its long range, smooth ride, excellent payload lift and outstanding cabin comfort. Since its entry into service in December 2014, the H175 has been flying in support of the oil & gas industry in the North Sea – one of the world harshest operational environments- and in Western Africa.
