Lagos State Acquires Two Helicopters

The Lagos State Government acquired two Bell-412EP helicopters (5N-LAG and 5N-LSG) ‘to give it the capacity to monitor traffic, pursue criminals, fight fire and evacuate people promptly when accidents happen‘.

The helicopters are operated by Caverton Helicopters. A company with a disputed reputation, which is also trying to establish itself alongside Aero Contractors/CHC and Pan African Helicopters/Bristow in the oil industry.

Caverton ordered five Bell-412EPs last year, and also operates a few other helicopters and a single Twin Otter.
