Bell Helicopter gains approval for maintenance in Asia
Bell Helicopter announced that Bell Helicopter Asia, its maintenance service facility in Singapore, has received a Part 145 maintenance organisation approval certificate from the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS).
This certification allows Bell Helicopter to complete comprehensive repair, completion, maintenance and customization solutions for Bell Helicopters in Asia.
“Singapore’s certification of Bell Helicopter Asia is a milestone in our Customer Support and Services program,” said Eric Cardinali, Bell Helicopter’s executive vice president of Customer Support and Services. “This certification enhances our ability to take care of our customers in Asia Pacific with comprehensive, one-stop-shop maintenance and repair solutions.

Bell Helicopter opened the Singapore facility in July 2012 along with Cessna Aircraft, both aviation companies owned by Textron.
“We are pleased to have received the Part 145 CAAS certification,” said Ray Waller, general manager, Bell Helicopter Asia. “We are seeing increased demand for our services in the region, and the CAAS certification was a critical aspect to meeting those needs.
