Milestone Sells Sikorsky S-92 Helicopter to Brunei Shell Petroleum

The Milestone Aviation Group recently sold a Sikorsky S-92 helicopter to Brunei Shell Petroleum.

Brunei Shell Petroleum will use the S-92 for passenger transport and offshore oil and gas purposes in Brunei. 

Michael York, the Head of Emerging Markets, Milestone Aviation, said the sale of the S-92 indicates how healthy the helicopter market is. 

“We are very pleased to work with Brunei Shell Petroleum on this sale transaction. The S-92 is the workhorse of the offshore oil and gas industry and will continue to be for many years thanks to its advanced capabilities and proven reliability,” he said. “The sale of this aircraft is also a testament to the strong liquidity in the helicopter market. We are grateful to BSP for the trust that they have placed in Milestone, and we thank them for their business.”

John Cameron, the Head of Aviation, Brunei Shell Petroleum, said the S-92 has been a valued asset for the company for over 15 years. He added the latest acquisition would further boost Brunei Shell Petroleum’s operations.

“The purchase of the additional S-92 and optimization of our Aviation Fleet allows the BSP Aviation department to continue providing safe and efficient air transport services. The S-92 has been a cornerstone of our air transport services since 2007 and we look forward to continued operations with the aircraft for several years,” he said. 

Last month, Milestone leased five S-92s to Offshore Helicopter Services UK (OHS). In March 2023, it sold 12 helicopters to Macquarie Rotorcraft, including S-92, Airbus H135, Bell 412, and Leonardo AW109, AW139, and AW189 helicopters.
