Lynton celebrates 25 years of Sikorsky sales with first S-76C++ in Europe

PARIS AIR SHOW, June 15, 2005 – Lynton Aviation Aircraft Sales today announced a contract to deliver a new S-76C++ helicopter to Haughey Air Ltd in the UK, a company owned by the Lord Ballyedmond.

The S-76C++ contract is the first to be signed for a customer within the European Union and further cements Lynton’s position as the long standing Sikorsky representative within the UK.

Carlisle based Haughey Air currently operates an S-76B and this will be the first time that they have purchased a new delivery Sikorsky Helicopter for which delivery is scheduled for the 4th Qtr of 2006. The aircraft is to be used for Public Transport operations within the UK.

Lynton’s Steve Ayling commented "We are delighted that Haughey Air has chosen the S-76C++. We see this as continued recognition of the outstanding safety, reliability and value for money that the S-76 offers, not to mention the excellent commitment and support that Sikorsky provides for its customers worldwide. Extensive product upgrades including increased engine ratings and favourable exchange rates now places the S-76C++ in an even stronger position against its main European competitors.”

It was way back in 1980 when Lynton’s predecessor - Air Hanson - took delivery of the first corporate S-76 at Brooklands in England and this aircraft is still actively flying its current owner within the UK after 25-years of service.

Lynton Aviation Aircraft Sales is currently in negotiation with a number of other UK clients regarding this latest addition to the venerable S-76 range, and are confident of seeing more S-76C++ deliveries within the coming years.

Lynton Aviation Aircraft Sales and its parent company Oxford Aviation Services are located at Fairoaks Airport and are subsidiaries of BBA Group plc, a global $2.6 billion aviation sales and support business. Other companies within BBA Group include Signature Flight Support, ASIG, H & S Aviation, APPH Ltd, Dallas Airmotive and the CSE Citation Centre located at Bournemouth Airport.
