Hillsboro Aviation, a full service rotary and fixed wing operator based in Oregon, has been designated as an authorised Airbus Helicopters service centre. In 2016, Hillsboro was appointed Airbus Helicopter's first-ever North American commercial sales agent in the aircraft manufacturer's 47 year history.
"We are thrilled to celebrate our long partnership with Airbus Helicopters with the addition of an authorised service centre," says COO and vice president Ryan McCartney. "As the only combined authorised reseller and service centre in the northwestern United States, we look forward to supporting the lifecycle of our customers' aircraft from acquisition to maintenance and upgrades."
With its service centre appointment, Hillsboro Aviation is positioned to provide a comprehensive suite of services to customers, filling a long-awaited niche in the region. In addition to maintenance and upgrades, the company can now perform warranty work, cost-competitive aircraft completions and Airbus OEM part sales.
"Our team is pleased to officially recognise Hillsboro Aviation as an authorised service centre and fully trust its capability to effectively assist our customer network," adds Niko Szodruch, vice president of support and services of the North America region for Airbus Helicopters. "We are confident that our customers in the region will appreciate having Hillsboro Aviation, the only Airbus Helicopters authorised service centre in Oregon, as a new choice for meeting their helicopter maintenance needs."
