The two new Leonardo helicopters, which are the first of their type to enter LCI’s fleet, were recently delivered to Sloane Helicopters’ base at Sywell, Northamptonshire in the UK.

They will be flown by Sloane Helicopters on behalf of The Air Ambulance Service - the local air ambulance provider for Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland and a new end user for LCI.

Crispin Maunder, Executive Chairman of LCI, said: “Sloane Helicopters is one of Europe’s foremost helicopter companies, and we are delighted to be launching this new leasing partnership with them. We look forward to supporting their mission-critical operations.”

Jeremy Awenat, Managing Director of Sloane Helicopters, said: “When it came to selecting a helicopter lessor for our work with the Air Ambulance Service, LCI’s proven track record, and extensive technical knowledge in both EMS and helicopter operations in general, made them an obvious choice. We look forward to developing a longstanding partnership with them as we introduce these life-saving helicopters into service in the UK.”

LCI’s fleet is focused on the latest technology medium and super medium helicopters manufactured by leading helicopter OEMs including Leonardo, Airbus and Sikorsky. These are in operation across four continents in multiple sectors including emergency medical services, offshore wind, search and rescue, maritime pilot transfer and oil-and-gas transportation.

With a sound commercial strategy and highly experienced senior management team who have worked together for almost 10 years, LCI has consistently grown in scale and value since 2012. It has built strong relationships with many leading financial institutions and, in partnership with them, manages a current asset pool worth around $1 billion.
