This aircraft was constructed in 1980. It spent its first three decades in Canada, Austria, Germany and UK. The helicopter was imported to Sweden by Arctic Air
in March/April 2012.
Later the same spring Arctic Air
purchased Lapplandsflyg's operation in Kvikkjokk, including its hangar. Arctic Air
inherited the shuttle route between Kvikkjokk-Staloluokta and the local ad hoc operations in the region. The deal was a result of Lapplandsflyg's retirement in the spring of 2012. SE-JOA
was engaged in the Kvikkjokk operations the same summer.
