Schweizer, manufacturer of the Schweizer S300 and S300CBi piston powered and S333 turbine helicopters, is to undertake further expansion through two new European Schweizer-authorised service centres, Heli Holland and HeliEast, as well as a new representative for Africa and the Middle East, Unionlet.

Located in Poland, HeliEast was founded by three long-time aviation professionals with extensive experience running their own helicopter aviation companies including flight training in the Schweizer 300CBi. An EASA part 145 repair station, the company is extending its approvals to the S300 and S333 as a part of its service centre agreement.

“Introducing Schweizer to the Polish market is an excellent opportunity for everyone in the company,” says CEO Piotr Starowicz. “We believe in the aircraft and are confident it will be successful here.”

Heli Holland of the Netherlands has been a flight training and charter helicopter operator for more than 40 years. It operates a fleet of Schweizer 300 and 333 helicopters for training and charter, including flight training for the Royal Netherlands Navy. The company also runs an EASA Part 145 maintenance and overhaul facility and provides helicopter and parts sales throughout Europe.

“We are pleased to see Schweizer, and demand for Schweizer aircraft, growing and are honoured to support that growth through helicopter sales and service here in the Netherlands,” says CEO René van der Haring.

Unionlet is a UK company specialising in the provision of aerospace and defence solutions to government customers across Africa and the Middle East. Established in 1981, it is an exclusive distributor for a broad range of manufacturers and has supplied directly to government end users in over 50 countries, making it uniquely positioned with a wealth of understanding and enviable expertise in this marketplace to help grow the Schweizer brand.

“We are honoured to welcome these outstanding companies to the Schweizer family to help support our continued growth through aircraft and parts sales as well as provide top-notch service and support to our customers,” says Schweizer president and CEO David Horton.
