“The rotorcraft segment is a strategic focus for BBA Aviation,” said Nandu Madireddi, senior vice president of BBA Aviation Engine Repair and Overhaul (ERO). “Speed and flexibility are the keys to success in serving this localized and fragmented market. We intend to leverage our multiple locations and expand this program globally.”

To that end, the company is reorganizing its structure and has appointed Clarke Mouncher the global program director for all of BBA’s ERO RR250 activities. In that capacity he will be responsible for overhaul services at H+S Aviation and Premier Turbines, as well as repair activities at BBA Aviation’s Phoenix and Dayton regional turbine centers.

According to Mouncher, a key area of his responsibility will be oversight and coordination of the commercial and operational activities at all facilities, with BBA Aviation’s component repair operations in Louisiana, and with its International Turbine Service parts retailing company.
