In addition to repairing its 10,000th rotor blade at its Grand Prairie, Texas shop, American Eurocopter announced that it will open its first regional service center, one of several it plans to launch within the U.S. The West Coast Regional Service Center is to be located at the Long Beach Airport in the Daugherty Skyharbor Complex. American Eurocopter estimates that more than 200 client aircraft are based in the region, including those flown by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the Los Angeles Police Department. Eurocopter says that the service center will stock a large parts supply, employ based and traveling maintenance technicians and provide pilot and maintenance training.
