Bell Helicopter operators have more maintenance options with Winnipeg, Manitoba-based Cadorath Aerospace. The company has developed 123 new Bell engineering repairs in the past year and has more than 600 approved repairs for the Bell line overall.
“We have expanded the Bell 206B, 206L, 407, 204, 205, 212 and 412 rework lines,” said Gerry Cadorath, the company’s president and CEO. “We have targeted 180 more for 2012.”
Cadorath told AIN that Bell Helicopter parts repairs are a “moderate but rapidly growing” part of the company’s business. “We expect to see considerable growth over the next several years as we consistently engineer 150 to 200 additional repairs per year,” he said.
“As the world’s largest Rolls-Royce-approved repair facility for the Model 250 engine, with locations in Winnipeg and Broussard, Louisiana, we were already supporting the global Bell Helicopter fleet in a significant way on the engine side,” Cadorath concluded.
