Cadorath Adds More Bell Repairs During 2011

Cadorath Aerospace’s tally of approved repairs for Bell products has grown to more than 600, with 123 added last year. Cadorath Aerospace (Booth No. 5024), part of Winnipeg-based Cadorath Group, plans to add more Bell-series repairs this year, to complement its existing Bell and Rolls-Royce capabilities. “This fulfills, in part, a promise we made to our customers to continue to expand our product offerings,” said president and CEO Gerry Cadorath.

Bell rework is also done at Cadorath Aerospace’s Lafayette, La., facility. To deliver on promises of high levels of customer service, Cadorath’s Bell technical support team acts as a liaison between customers and the engineering division, according to the company. “Because we have two locations in North America, we feel our service levels are deeper and more comprehensive than the other options in the marketplace,” Cadorath said.

Cadorath Aerospace subsidiary Cadorath Leasing also announced that it delivered a Bell 206 L-3 to Macaluso & Associates, a Carlsbad, Calif., company that flies the helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft for executive transport. Cadorath offers helicopter dry leases for terms of one to five years as well as purchase options on long-term leases. The 206 L-3 received a new interior, paint and avionics as well as mid-time to new components before delivery to Macaluso & Associates.
