“The rotorcraft segment is a strategic focus for BBA Aviation,” said Nandu Madireddi, senior vice president of BBA Aviation Engine Repair and Overhaul (ERO). “Speed and flexibility are the keys to success in serving this localized and fragmented market. We intend to leverage our multiple locations and expand this program globally.”
The BBA Group, which includes the Signature Flight Support chain and Dallas Airmotive, believes that business aviation has bounced back from the post-September 11 downturn and predicts this recovery will shore up its profits this year. On March 12 the UK-based company announced pre-tax profits for 2001 of £124.2 million ($176 million), down 18 percent from the previous year.
