COMPANY PROFILE: Paradigm Aerospace Corp.

By Staff Writer | January 1, 2007

Paradigm Aerospace Corp. today has evolved into a helicopter and aviation facility that strives to deliver an exceptional experience for the pilot and owner/operators of light- to medium-turbine helicopters.

Its goal is to provide an overall product and service that is exceptional in quality and completed right the first time 100 percent of the time... and always an exceptional result. Delivering the completed aircraft on time or within industry time-line standards is the first mark of an exceptional experience for both the pilot and operator’s team. Working closely with the operators allows the company to be an integral part of the productivity and revenue generation necessary for their mission.

Paradigm Aerospace is focused on developing strong and dynamic relationships with customers that will be lifelong. "We take the time to work with our customers to determine what their needs and expectations are, and we respond to those needs and expectations through innovative solutions, quality craftsmanship and very personal service," explains Paradigm President Ed Pears. "In addition, we are focused on providing capabilities that operators want and need today and in the future."


Paradigm’s capabilities cover a broad range of helicopter services. Within the past several years, the company has moved from a Bell Helicopter-only facility to one that encompasses additional brands. "Our legacy company grew as a Bell-only facility," Pears says. "During the past 18 months, we have seen an increase in need for additional helicopter manufacturers and have added Agusta as the first to this list of manufacturers. The following chart helps identify capabilities at the close of 2006.

"In 2007, additional manufacturers and buyers will be able to utilize our full contract customizing and completions services," he concludes. "Providing fast, full service is what Paradigm is all about."

As an FAA repair station, Paradigm Aerospace offers maintenance services for turbine-powered aircraft from light to medium duty. For Bell, the company developed into a highly experienced maintenance facility with a wide range of experience along with processes to enable service performance that provides a significantly lower direct operating cost than fleet averages.

In addition, Paradigm Aerospace is a full-service dealer and installer for leading avionics manufacturers. Considerable expertise in avionics provides customers with the best possible equipment brand recommendations to fit their mission, covering these areas: a wide range of radios, flight control systems, mission-specific communications and electronics and entertainment systems.

As a QPS-class completion center for Bell over the years, Paradigm has proven to be a leader in paint and interior finishing. The Paradigm finishing process, as applied by the company’s highly experienced personnel, delivers a paint finish that is exceptional and considered one of the best in the aviation industry.
