On September 4, 2013, Erickson Air-Crane completed its purchase of Air Amazonia Serviços Aeronauticos Ltda. ("Air Amazonia"), the aviation services division of HRT Participações em Petróleo S.A. ("HRT"), as well as a fleet of six aircraft and ground facilities.
This purchase, along with the recent acquisition of Evergreen Helicopters, completes Erickson's transformation into a diversified entity with global reach and full-spectrum aerial, repair and overhaul capabilities. Erickson has diversified its fleet to include both rotor and fixed wing aircraft -- with light-, medium-, and heavy-lift capabilities -- servicing a diverse range of customers across numerous end-markets.
