Eagle Copters Maintenance is renamed for Bell
The name and branding change presents ECM as part of the Bell organisation, which affords it the opportunity to offer enhanced and expanded services to support customers in Australia.
ECM's name change to Bell Textron Australia marks a key milestone in its commitment to grow its local aftermarket footprint and service offering in Australia.

Eagle Copters Maintenance (ECM) has been renamed Bell Textron Australia following Bell's acquisition of the company in 2022.

“ECM's name change to Bell Textron Australia marks a key milestone in our commitment to grow our local aftermarket footprint and service offering in Australia, to better serve our Australian customers and to capture new demand in an important market for Bell,” says vice president, customer experience Chris Schaefer. “My team and I look forward to deepening the long term relationships we have in the country and to support our leadership team at Bell Textron Australia.”

“This name and branding change presents us as part of the Bell organisation, which affords us the opportunity to offer enhanced and expanded services to support our customers,” adds BTA director Grant Boyter. “Moreover, I am pleased to share that the team here remains the same, and we look forward to offering the same flexible, focused, quality and service-orientated approach for which Eagle is known.”

Formed in 2013 by Calgary, Canada-based Eagle Copters and Aero Assist, an Australian company, ECM brings decades of experience in helicopter support and local knowledge to customers across its facilities in Coffs Harbour and Redcliffe, Australia. Over the past 40 years, the Eagle Copters group of companies has grown to be one of Bell's top producing customer service facilities in the world.

Globally, Bell currently has 12 company-operated service centres providing aircraft maintenance, blade repairs, customisations and more in the Czech Republic, Singapore, UK, UAE, Australia, US, Canada and China.
