“It was a great pleasure and exciting opportunity to work with the team at Clayton County”” said Wysong’s Director of Operations Paul Schreuder. “It is always rewarding to have a customer trust our team with their completion or upgrade and being able to deliver on budget allowed the department to get the most out of their aircraft. We really appreciate the trust that Clayton County put in us and are thrilled to deliver on their expectations.
Wysong is currently working on the county’s Bell 206 also. “From the initial meeting with their team of completion specialist to the delivery day of our Bell 407 GXi, the Wysong team listened to our input and provided excellence at every step of the process,” said John Croley a pilot with Clayton County and the department’s Aviation Manager. “The workmanship, technical expertise and customer service are second to none.”
Todd Reese serves as Clayton County’s Director of Maintenance. “The Clayton County Police Department has operated Bell aircraft for more than 25 years. The addition of this new Bell 407 GXi to our current fleet will add more capabilities than we ever had before and will carry the Clayton County Police Aviation Unit another 25 plus years. Wysong’s team helped to simplify a very complex police capable helicopter completion. They easily met the intended delivery time and always made sure we had an open line of communication that ensured we were all on the same page,” said Reese.
Wysong will be displaying at the APSA annual APSCON convention in Reno, Nevada at booth 346 to discuss their law enforcement aircraft modification, completion and customization capabilities.
