Bulgarian Navy has rented one of its new transport helicopters "Panther" to be used in the filming of the Hollywood super production the "Expendables 3."

A contract has been inked on August 16 between New Boyana Ex 3 and the Command of the Bulgarian Navy for the participation of one helicopter and its crew in the shooting of the hit action movie.

New Boyana Ex 3 is to pay over BGN 9 900 for 1 flight hour. The amount has been determined through cost analysis. The payment will be submitted after the "Panther" ends its participation in the filming. The needed number of flight hours remains undetermined.

The company will also pay airport fees to the airport in the Black Sea city of Varna and the insurance for the chopper and the crew.

The "Panther" is housed in the Varna Navy base.
