Professional Aviation Associates (PAA) has formed an alliance with Masco Service of Southlake, Texas. PAA, an international supplier of Beechcraft King Air, Beech 1900 and Beechjet parts and accessories, also offers a comprehensive rotable exchange program and inventory support for Agusta, Bell, Eurocopter, MD and Sikorsky helicopters. Masco is an avionics and instrument repair station specializing in the helicopter industry. Under the terms of the agreement PAA will represent Masco through its worldwide sales team and Masco will carry PAA inventory in its Broussard, La. warehouse. “Masco, which has enjoyed a strong U.S. presence, is now able to market internationally through PAA. They are consigning inventory to us primarily in London, Canada and Brazil. For our part, we are now consigning our inventory to their Louisiana location. [The agreement] opens up a new market to PAA by enabling us to supply starter/generators and helicopter consumable and rotable parts to the Gulf of Mexico helicopter operators where Masco has an established relationship,” Glenn MacDonald, president of PAA, told AIN.
