Bell unveils first two European AMCs
Aero Club is one of the largest general aviation maintenance stations in Poland, while Air Service International is located in Billund, Denmark. Both facilities have been named by Bell as authorised maintenance centres.
Bell authorised maintenance centres are touching down in Europe.

Bell Textron has added its first ever authorised maintenance centre (AMC) in Europe. The new AMC will provide maintenance for the Bell 505 and Bell 407 and is located near downtown Warsaw in Konstancin-Jeziorna, Poland.

“We are excited to announce our first AMC in Europe,” says Bell's Duncan Van De Velde. “It's important to ensure local support to our customers, and with this new Polish AMC, it provides Bell operators a sense of security that they can have maintenance or work performed on their aircraft that has been vetted and approved by Bell. We are glad Aero Club will be providing local maintenance and support to customers. This added support is in addition to the services Bell's Prague service centre offers for heavier maintenance needs.”

Aero Club is one of the largest general aviation maintenance stations in Poland. It started its operations in 2001 and was granted maintenance organisation Part-145 approval in 2004. Aero Club offers a professional level of services and has long-standing experience in servicing various types of aircraft. The Aero Club is a sister company with the same ownership as JB Investments, a Bell independent representative in Poland since 2007.

“We are proud to provide maintenance services for Bell,” states Jan Borowski, president of Aero Club and JB Investments companies. “It's exciting to be a part of Bell's AMC network and to continue its excellence in providing unmatched support and service to its Polish customers. We are confident that combining our sales efforts with professional technical support will result in growing the Bell fleet in Poland.”

Bell established the AMC network to reinforce its commitment to enhancing local support to customers, so they can quickly and efficiently continue their operations. Bell supports customers in more than 50 countries in Europe, Russia, the Middle East and Africa.

Bell is also adding its first AMC in Denmark, the second in Europe. Air Service International A/S is located in Billund, Denmark and will provide maintenance for the Bell 206A/B, 206L and 505. “Bell will support Air Service International to provide the necessary resources to support customers and their aircraft maintenance needs,” continues Van De Velde. “Air Service International will provide local field maintenance to customers, and Bell will continue to support customers with heavier maintenance needs or additional requests from Bell's Prague service centre.”

Air Service International was establish in 1979 by Poul Jensen. It is an EASA Part 145 approved centre that offers repair, service and maintenance of helicopters.
