At LABACE, Pratt & Whitney Canada president John Saabas awarded Helipark a plaque certifying its appointment as a Designated Maintenance Facility (DMF). Helipark president João Zeferino Ferreira Velloso said, "John, today Helipark is what it is, in part, because you helped us.”
“Helipark has been a trusted partner for many years," explained Saabas, "facilitating support of our mutual customers. They have a great quality control system, and they know as much of the market as anyone. Having Helipark as a DMF is a way to expand our reach.”
Helipark is a heliport, hangarage, and maintenance facility based in Carapicuíba, in the São Paulo metropolitan region.
