New Zealand MRO Oceania Aviation has been appointed as an authorised sales representative for MD Helicopters aircraft, equipment and accessories. Oceania is already the only ASC for MD Helicopters in Australasia, and the new dealership agreement will allow Oceania to represent MD in selling factory-new helicopters and related products into New Zealand, Singapore and Indonesia.
MD Helicopters director of commercial sales Jason Lindauer comments: “We're really excited about maintaining our longstanding relationship with Oceania Aviation and expanding the brand name within Australasia.”
Greg Edmonds, CEO of Oceania's parent company Salus Aviation, adds: “Having supported MD Helicopters as an authorised service centre in New Zealand and Australia for so many years, we pride ourselves on offering the industry with quality aftermarket service and sales support. We are honoured to be offered the opportunity to further represent MD's high performing helicopters, which are very popular across both civil and military aviation sectors.”
With more than 2,500 aircraft currently in service around the world, MD helicopters are known for their safety, versatility, responsiveness, speed and reliability. Fleet users include the Korean Armed Forces, US Special Operations, Japanese Self Defence Forces and many others around the world.
“We very much look forward to assisting MD Helicopters in expanding its brand and presence in the Asia Pacific region, which has been identified as a territory with significant potential for the OEM,” concludes Edmonds.
