Van Horn Touts New Repair Station at Heli-Expo 2014
In the wake of receiving a repair station certificate, composite rotor blade manufacturer Van Horn Aviation (VHA; Booth No. 7129) has established a repair station, operating as Van Horn Repair (VHR). Co-located with VHA’s Tempe, Ariz. manufacturing facility, the operation will specialize in repairing VHA composite rotor blades.
“The repair station certificate allows us to better serve our customers by providing in-house repair and replacement of both warrantied and non-warrantied parts, said VHA president James Van Horn.
VHR’s services will include replacement of bearings/bushings; repairing limited damage to composite skins; replacing abrasion strips; rebalancing blades; repairing voids in blades; and other structural repairs as approved by an FAA-authorized designated engineering representative. VHA quality manager and FAA-authorized designated manufacturing inspection representative Marie Dwyer will oversee VHR’s operations.
