Able Aerospace Services, a Textron Inc. company, has been selected by Eagle Copters as the exclusive provider for component repair, overhaul and exchange services for helicopter installations in Australasia and Chile.

The agreement includes support for a significant mixed fleet of aircraft in these regions. It will also help Eagle Copters expand its existing Bell Helicopters certified service facility (CSF) rating to include broad overhaul solutions for the Australasia market.

“Eagle Copters is widely known and respected for its superior global customer support,” said John Jackson, vice president of business development for Able Aerospace Services. “Our relationship underscores the industry’s growing need for solutions that help safely, efficiently and cost-effectively maintain aircraft fleets. We’re honoured that Eagle has selected Able to continue – and even further develop – this major market advantage.”

Eagle Copters is a helicopter leasing and sales organisation, with services that include product development and engineering. The company is based in Calgary, Alberta, with additional global locations in Chile and Australasia.

With support from Able, Eagle Copters will expand its CSF designation to include an overhaul rating.

“Our customer programs in Chile and Australasia represented the perfect opportunity for us to begin our working relationship with Able Aerospace Services,” said Barry Kohler, president of Eagle Copters. “Our satellite locations have grown and changed considerably from their inception, and we felt we owed it to our team to supplement our capability with a highly experienced organisation to ensure we end up with the most effective solution for both our current customers and ourselves.”
