Jet Aviation delivers three overhauled Bell 412s to Middle East client


Jet Aviation has delivered three Bell 412 twin-engine helicopters to an undisclosed Middle East client after major inspections and refurbishments.

The company’s maintenance facility in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates was commissioned to refurbish, paint and sell three Bell 412s in conjunction with undertaking five-year inspections. The inspections included full disassembly of all the aircraft and engine upgrades.

Jet Aviation’s general manager of the Fujairah maintenance facility Mike Conomos said: “It was a big project that the team was excited to take on.” The helicopters had been parked in different locations across the region for an extended period before they were trucked to Fujairah in early 2021. “Coupled with the required paint and refurbishment, each aircraft took an average of 3,000 man-hours to complete. All three deliveries were made on time following stunning transformations,” he added.

The company operates a team of more than 20 maintenance professionals in Fujairah, representing nearly as many nationalities. They provide helicopter maintenance, repair, upgrades and modifications, including dedicated maintenance support across the Asia Pacific and Middle East region.

“Our customers appreciate both the scope of our capabilities and our commitment to the highest standards. The team drew on all their experience, expertise, passion and flexibility with this project, and I couldn’t be prouder of them,” said Conomos.
