Phoenix Heliparts, with 1st Source Bank and Southwest Aviation Insurance Group, plans to offer financing and insurance options on its future MD 500 helicopter sales. Phoenix Heliparts (Booth No. C1527) aims for its Mesa, Ariz. headquarters to become the one-stop shop for MD 500 purchases by “providing a total service experience and simplifying the process of restoring and upgrading MD 500s.”
Phoenix Heliparts president Tina Cannon said the goal is “to reduce the challenges that buyers face when undergoing a custom helicopter restoration.”
At Heli-Expo, Phoenix Heliparts is offering a $10,000 credit to anyone who signs a purchase offer for one or both MD 500s currently undergoing complete refurbishment, and who places a deposit at the show.
In ceremonies at 11:30 a.m. today at its booth, Phoenix will officially hand over a customized replica of the MD 500D used in the hit television show Magnum P.I. Stars of the show, Larry Manetti and Roger E. Mosley, will be on hand to sign the aircraft and Manetti will be available to sign free copies of his book, Aloha Magnum.
As part of the 10th anniversary celebration, the company will also hold a customer appreciation event at its booth today at 2 p.m.
