Las Vegas, February 27th, 2018 - Kopter Group signed a memorandum of Agreement with Rainier International Inc, a subsidiary of Elling Halverson Inc, for the purchase of five (5) SH09 helicopters with options for as many as five (5) additional aircraft for delivery within the next three (3) years.
This order was announced during Heli-Expo in Las Vegas in the presence of Andreas Loewenstein, CEO of Kopter Group and Richard "Lash" Larew, President of Rainier International.
Richard "Lash" Larew said: "Rainier is gratified to work with Kopter Group though the development and delivery of the SH09 helicopters, and is excited about operating a helicopter that brings to bear all the advances in technology, performance, safety and reliability incorporated into the aircraft along with the anticipated operational cost savings of a single engine helicopter that offers the internal cabin volume only available in twin-engine helicopters of its size.
Andreas Loewenstein added: "I am tremendously pleased about the level of acceptance that we are seeing for the SH09 across the board and very proud that our helicopter is now slated to be included in the future fleet of an Operator such as Rainier International Inc who is recognized globally for their level of expertise, service and customer satisfaction”.
