AeroHP starts part-out business with VIP AW139
AeroHP, the Houston aviation services company, has moved into the part-out market. The company’s first project is the part-out of a VIP-configured Leonardo AW139 aircraft.
“The global helicopter industry has significant idle assets due to overcapacity in the current market. These aircraft still represent value in terms of their parts and components. This Leonardo AW139 was identified as a suitable candidate for parting-out by our client and would not be returning to service because of the significant return to service cost involved,” said Paul White, President and CEO of AeroHP.
The AW139 is managed by Intrinsic Aviation, founded by Ed Washecka former CEO of Era Helicopters and Waypoint Leasing.
AeroHP is looking to part-out Leonardo AW139s, Sikorsky S76 and others.
“By converting these excess helicopters into used, serviceable material, we help the industry recover their valuable parts and components that have remaining life and operating time in a responsible and economic manner,” said White. “Fleet owners worldwide can utilize these fully inspected parts to reduce their direct operating costs, reduce AOG (aircraft on ground) time and keep their aircraft client-ready.”
AeroHP is based at David Wayne Hooks Memorial Airport in Northwest Houston. It offers aircraft tenant and management services, airplane rentals, specialty flights, and maintenance services. The company was founded in 2020 by White former SVP commercial at Era Helicopters.
