Canada's Heli-One is set to offer assistance to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), according to a company news release, providing maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for UAE's Airbus Helicopters fleet. Heli-One will be servicing the AS365 and AS332, which are powered by Arriel 2C and Makila 1A engines.
Germany, Denmark, Finland, the United States and, of course, Canada are some of the nations that currently receive Heli-One MRO services. This new development, however, marks the first time the British Columbia-based company will have operations in the Middle East. However, Heli-One is no stranger to the Arriel 2C and Makila 1A. The company also services the CT58, PT6T and PT6C.
Arriel service will be performed at Heli-One’s Colorado facility, while Makila service will be performed in Norway. In addition, the company also has a facility in Poland. Heli-One is certified to perform up to Level 4 maintenance on both engine families.
