RBI Hawker Australia, a joint venture between Jet Aviation company Hawker Pacific Airservices and Bell, has been appointed a rotor blade repair service centre for Leonardo Helicopters. The Brisbane-based facility has been operating in Australia since receiving its Part 145 maintenance organisation approval from the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority in June 2021. It was appointed a customer service facility for Bell in July 2021.

With this latest approval, RBI Hawker Australia is authorised to offer OEM approved helicopter rotor blade repair services to Leonardo AW139 and AW109 models from its 1,000 sqm maintenance facility in Eagle Farm, Brisbane.

“This service expansion demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing high quality OEM-supported rotary blade repair services to both government and commercial Leonardo Helicopters operators in the region,” says Jet Aviation vice president for north east Asia Ian D'Arcy. “We look forward to working closely with Leonardo Helicopters to provide the quality customer service and support that operators have grown accustomed to expect from RBI Hawker, both in the Middle East and Australia.”
