Heli-One to to refurbish Sultan of Johor helicopters

Heli-One to to refurbish Sultan of Johor helicopters


British Columbia Government, April 25, 2016 - Heli-One of Delta will refurbish two helicopters for the Sultan of Johor, Malaysia, under a new $8-million (US) contract, concluded during the recent three-day visit of His Majesty, Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar.

Finance Minister Michael de Jong welcomed the agreement as a sign of the growing international reputation of B.C.’s aerospace industry and the promising economic ties between British Columbia and Malaysia.

Heli-One will design, certify, and install a new glass cockpit on two Sikorsky S-76 B helicopters owned by His Majesty, the Sultan of Johor. When complete, the aircraft will feature the latest navigation and safety features to match the capabilities of new helicopters, but at a lower cost. The company will also install a VIP interior, paint the aircraft with a custom livery and perform all maintenance tasks due on the helicopters. Heli-One will also provide flight crew and maintenance technician training for the new equipment.

Headquartered in Delta and with additional facilities in Fort Collins, Colo., Stavanger, Norway, and Rzeszow, Poland, Heli-One is the world’s largest independent helicopter maintenance, repair and overhaul company. The head office and 18,000 square-metre (200,000 square-foot) maintenance facility in Delta employs approximately 250 people.

This is the second recent contract with Malaysia awarded to Heli-One. On April 20, 2016, the company announced a new agreement to upgrade the Sikorsky S-61 helicopter fleet for the Royal Malaysia Air Force in partnership with AIROD, Malaysia’s leading aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul centre.

Johor is located in the south of peninsular Malaysia adjacent to Singapore. This strategic location positions Johor as a regional Assoication of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) economic hub. His Majesty’s vision and leadership, such as establishing international and economic and trade partnerships, have guided the state of Johor’s robust economic growth to become the third-largest contributor to Malaysia’s GDP.

While in B.C., His Majesty also visited several other notable B.C. aerospace firms, including Conair Group and Cascade Aerospace in Abbotsford, Viking Air in Sidney, Harbour Air in Vancouver, and Urthecast, the Vancouver-based technology company that serves the rapidly evolving geospatial and geoanalytics markets.

British Columbia’s rotary-wing sector has developed a worldwide reputation for its specialized knowledge in MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) services, pilot training and the development of STCs (supplemental type certificates) that enable helicopter operators to maximize the utilization, safety, and performance of their aircraft. As the use of helicopters continues to increase in the Asia-Pacific region, B.C. is well-positioned to support this growth as a preferred gateway for the aerospace industry to the Asia-Pacific.

In April 2014, the B.C. government announced a five-year, $5-million commitment to be delivered through the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada (AIAC) Pacific Region to help create a world-class aerospace cluster in B.C. and accelerate the growth of the industry.
