Prepurchase inspections, including physical checks and paperwork audits, are crucial to preventing unpleasant surprises.
Periodic maintenance is conducted every 50, 100, or 150 hours depending on aircraft model. Periodic aircraft maintenance is critical to minimizing the risk of malfunction. Well-maintained aircraft are the safe way to fly.
The Maintenance Center refurbishes helicopters. Aircraft are inspected, disassembled, then reassembled using new parts, reconditioned parts, or parts that have passed inspection, depending on your needs and the helicopter’s condition.
Breakdown assistance (crew comes to you)
Our crew can come to you wherever you are to perform unscheduled maintenance or carry out repairs after breakage or an accident and return your aircraft to working order. This service is available to operators with 1 to 3 helicopters.
The Maintenance Center also offers maintenance contracts to operators with no AMO (Approved Maintenance Organization). We come to you to conduct aircraft maintenance.
Optional equipment installation
Our crew can also install optional equipment (bear paws, baskets, mirrors, AC units, etc.) on various types of aircraft.
The Maintenance Center has an inventory of parts from various manufacturers such as Airbus, Robinson, Hughes, and Agusta, as well as a wide range of ready-to-use products.
Our crew can assist you in purchasing helicopters abroad and with the inspection process once back in Quebec. We can also help you sell aircraft abroad, ensuring that the machines are compliant with the receiving country’s regulations.
The Maintenance Center has the necessary resources to help you purchase, trade, or sell helicopters. If you need assistance for the inspection process, we provide that service as well.
