Heli-One, a subsidiary of operator CHC, has expanded its Poland facility by 6,000+ m² to accommodate helicopter storage for up to 40 “heavy” aircraft. The facility provides for a controlled and monitored environment tailored for aircraft storage, allowing helicopter owners and operators to be assured that their aircraft assets will be maintained to proper storage conditions and be made service-ready quickly.
The facility offers a flexible set of storage service offerings, ranging from a minimum of 45 days to as much as 12 months or longer. Accepted aircraft platforms include the Airbus AS332 and H225, Sikorsky S-92 and S-76, and Leonardo AW139. The Rzeszow facility is approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Poland and provides for around-the-clock staffing and a bonded warehouse.
“We are pleased to open this dedicated storage facility to support operators who require maximum flexibility in aircraft storage solutions,” said Anthony DiNota, President, Heli-One. “Our team in Poland offers a comprehensive solution encompassing preparation, routine maintenance, and returning the aircraft back to service levels quickly, reliably and safely. With decades of experience in helicopter maintenance and logistics planning, the entire Heli-One team can support the complex needs of short- or long-term aircraft storage.”
