Heli-One Providing UAE Joint Aviation Command with Arriel and Makila Overhaul Services


Heli-One, October 06, 2016 - Stavanger, Norway – Heli-One, a leading global provider of helicopter maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services, has been selected by the Joint Aviation Command (JAC) of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to provide MRO services for their Arriel 2C and Makila 1A engines flown in the fleet’s Airbus AS365 and AS332 aircraft.

Although Heli-One has provided MRO services on both the Arriel and Makila family of engines, this represents the first time Heli-One will provide such MRO services for a customer in the Middle East. The Arriel service will be performed at Heli-One’s facility in Colorado, while the Makila service will be completed in Norway.

“We are excited to have Heli-One as an engine service provider for our fleet,” a representative from the JAC commented. “Heli-One’s expertise in Makila and Arriel engines, quick turn-around-times, and global network positioned them as an attractive maintenance supplier and a great partner for us.”

“Our team is excited for this new challenge and is committed to providing quality and timely service to ensure that the UAE JAC can continue their operations with minimal disruption,” said Anthony DiNota, President, Heli-One. “Our team, including our industry-leading engine experts, look forward to supporting this dynamic fleet. This marks the first time Heli-One will provide its services in the Middle East, and we will work to further strengthen our presence in this key aviation region and share with other operators our dedication to customer service and quality work.”

The UAE Joint Air Command was established in 1968 and has an extensive fleet of fixed- and rotor-wing aircraft, including aircraft from Airbus, Leonardo, Bell, Boeing, and Sikorsky. Heli- One has decades of experience in supporting Safran engines, including the completion of more than 700 Makila and 200 Arriel engine overhauls.

About Heli-One: Heli-One is based in Delta, British Columbia, Canada. Heli-One has MRO operations in: Delta, Canada; Stavanger, Norway; Fort Collins, Colorado; and Rzeszow, Poland. Heli-One is the world’s largest independent helicopter MRO and holds certifications and expertise on a broad range of airframes and components from major helicopter and engine manufacturers, including Airbus, Sikorsky, Leonardo (AgustaWestland), Bell, Safran Helicopter Engines (Turbomeca), Pratt & Whitney and General Electric.
