Pre-owned sales strengthen helicopter collaboration
The purchase and sale of another six pre-owned helicopters has further reinforced the distributor agreement between Rotortrade and Leonardo.
Rotortrade senior partner Raymond Lubrano, Leonardo vice president business unit secure communications Carlo Gualdaroni and senior vice president commercial business unit Emilio Dalmasso, Rotortrade chairman Philippe Lubrano and managing partner Aurelien Blanc.

Rotortrade Services has made the purchase and sale of a further batch of six pre-owned helicopters, leveraging its global distributorship agreement with Leonardo. This latest achievement builds on the renewal of the agreement signed in February 2018 for another three years. Rotortrade has been the sole worldwide pre-owned helicopters distributor for Leonardo since 2014. Since then over 27 Leonardo aircraft have been sold to end-users worldwide.

Capitalising on this growth and through this partnership, Rotortrade is able to offer AgustaWestland models produced by Leonardo with manufacturer, training and warranty translating into a reliable and cost effective service ensured by the helicopter manufacturer's full support and highest quality standards.

Founded in 2012 in Singapore, Rotortrade Services is a helicopter distributor and sole global distributor of Leonardo's pre-owned helicopters. The company provides the full range of services to accompany even the most complex helicopter acquisitions and divestments from offices in Kuala Lumpur, Los Angeles, Montreal, Paris and Singapore as well as affiliations with exclusive network partners around the world. It is soon to open a new office in Australia covering the Oceania market.
