Uniflight Selected for Eurocopter VIP Completion

Eurocopter AS350B2 buyer Saul Maia has selected Uniflight’s Grand Prairie, Texas, maintenance and completions facility to perform a VIP completion on the helicopter. Maia’s AS350B2 was delivered to Uniflight last month. “I looked at a variety of completion houses,” Maia said. “There are many out there to choose from. I talked to industry people who I trust. I really did my homework. In the end, Uniflight was the obvious choice for me. I am very confident in the staff that I met there and their capability to give me the aircraft I imagine in my mind.”

Uniflight is also interested in developing a Bell 206 retrofit for Rolls-Royce’s new RR500 turboshaft, but that project is pending improved economic conditions.
